Animal ID: 1493Maple (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    A calm, affectionate companion, Maple is slowed down a little by excess weight, but she otherwise is quite peppy. She has already made a lot of progress in getting her weight down to a healthy level and now, at 21 lbs., she has just a few more pounds to go. Maple is about 8 years old, and with her maturity comes great house manners and reliable house training. She will stand still for you to attach a leash, and if you open the car door she will jump in and go right into her crate. She gets along very well with other dogs except when food is involved, so she does best eating separately. She will greet strangers with friendliness and doesn't ... (Read More)mind a bit when they want to pat her. She is a happy, well-behaved gal with an easy-going nature who makes a wonderful, huggable companion. See more photos of Maple in her online album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/maple. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Maple, please go to New Rattitude's website at http://www.NewRattitude.org/adopt.htm, where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application.

Animal ID: 1494Juniper (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Spunky, playful, affectionate, and altogether adorable...that's Juniper! She is a 12-lb. bundle of sweetness who is about 2-3 years old. After being 'sprung' from the shelter, she came to her new foster home and immediately fit right in with no transition issues. Her good nature is especially admirable because she clearly has had some major trauma in her life, attested to by large scars on her back and up her neck. While they don't bother her at all, the hair loss in those areas is likely permanent. But she doesn't care a bit, and she will eagerly jump into your lap for pats and snuggles. Juniper is just exactly what a young rattie should ... (Read More)be: instantly playful when toys come out, active and eager to follow wherever you choose to go, ready for a walk whenever you are, and content to cuddle quietly next to you when you want to rest. If you open the car door, she will jump in and go right into her crate for the ride. She is reliably house trained and sleeps quietly at night either in her crate or on a dog bed beside your bed. She gets along very well with other dogs and greets strangers politely with no hesitation. How could this little cutie be any more perfect? See more photos of her and a couple videos in her album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/juniper . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Juniper, please go to New Rattitude's website at http://www.NewRattitude.org/adopt.htm, where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    He is an extremely sweet dog and great with my cat, dog, and child, but I just cannot keep him any longer. He has had blood work which shows he is in great health and is current on all of his shots. He had a shot for heart worm prevention that still has 4 more months and has flea prevention for to more months. My vet estimated that he is between 12 and 16 months old.

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-23-00272Sparky the Fire Dog (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Howdy, folks! 'Sparky the Fire Dog' here. I was adopted from the kill shelter with my scruffy Jack Russell sister Roxy (who has already been adopted), then returned for a reason the people here don't know why. They just knew what that meant for me: I would be redlined and put down immediately. I was so sweet and gentle and wonderful and '| hey '| how could I not go on to touch everyone's hearts? Nope, I couldn't. I'm a very young (only about a year or two) boy who is very submissive. So submissive that I really didn't want to stand up for photos. I was much more comfortable being in Mama Donna's arms and/or rolling over for belly ... (Read More)scratches. I also like to dig. We're going to work on my insecurities and turn me into a confident, young man. If you're interested in doing so for or with us, we would love that, too! I'm neutered and have had all my shots, but my previous family didn't think heartworm testing was important. Yeah, don't get us started on that. I still need to be tested for that, but am ready to go otherwise. (Less)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Adriana Smith is an adorable little girl is a doll baby! Upon arriving at the shelter, Adriana would not allow anyone to get close to her, let alone leash walk her. Now Adriana is beginning to like her regular walks and absolutely loves being held! She also really enjoys her afternoon brushings and is known to roll over so that her belly can be adequately rubbed! She would make the perfect addition to a quieter home, as she still does get a little scared in new situations. If you are looking for a sweet, loveable, lap dog, this is definitely your girl!

Animal ID: 1428Laurel (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Laurel is a gentle, loyal dog who is absolutely devoted to her chosen person. She is polite but aloof with strangers she meets while out on walks, but an excellent watchdog in her own home -- always alertly on guard to protect her family and territory from intruders by barking at them until she is convinced that they are acceptable. Aside from her barking when something is amiss, you hardly know that she is there because she is pretty independent and not right underfoot all the time. She appreciates pats and scratches, and will sometimes get on her family's laps for some one-on-one time, but she is not demanding for attention nor is she big ... (Read More)on tight cuddling. Her activity level is moderate, with occasional bursts of playfulness but mostly she is just relaxed and regally alert. Laurel has excellent house manners and is perfectly house trained. She knows how to use a doggie door or will 'hold it' if one is not available. Laurel is about 5-6 years old and weighs 17 lbs. She is very food motivated and her patient, pleading eyes can be quite persuasive! She mostly does great with other dogs, either ignoring them or playing with them, depending on the other dog's personality. She meets new dogs well but noisily if they are in 'her' house. She can be bossy, though, if her personal space is invaded by another dog, especially at dinner time, and she often tries to act as Play Police when the other dogs get rowdy, so she would do best either as an only dog or with one easy-going companion. Laurel has learned to sit on command and responds well to a calm 'no.' When the leash comes out, her tail starts wagging and she is eager to go for a walk or a ride in the car. Laurel doesn't appear to be a fan of cats, as she will lunge at those she spies on her walks. Based on her mannerisms, personality traits, and appearance, we believe that Laurel is a Schipperke-Rat Terrier mix, but of course she does not have an ID to prove this. Please visit Laurel's on-line album to see more photos of this ultra easy-to-care-for gal: http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/laurel . =======================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Laurel, please go to New Rattitude's website at http://www.NewRattitude.org/adopt.htm, where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application.

Animal ID: 1370Barnabus (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    Barnabus, a 7.5-lb., 2-1/2-year-old fellow, has overcome a tough start in life--one which included being housed outside in the cold at a shelter. With patient, gentle love from his foster family, he has transformed himself from terrified to terrific! Now, having learned to give and receive affection from those he trusts, he loves to have his face scratched and his whole body rubbed. He will stand on his foster parents' laps and give gentle kisses. He is making progress at allowing himself to be picked up, and when he is praised, his short tail will just flutter with joy! He is still a 'slow-go' at first with strangers but does warm up when ... (Read More)he sees that his family is OK with the guests. He has been good around children ages 3-9 who have visited, but he needs to be monitored around the littlest ones. He will give them kisses and enjoy their company much of the time but will give a growl when he has had enough. Except for being reluctant to share his favorite toys, Barnabus gets along well with other dogs and looks to the other dogs in the household to learn his new routines, so it would be fine if his adoptive family had another dog, as long as it is not a rowdy puppy. And while he hasn't been around cats, he doesn't seem to be strongly prey driven, so he would probably get along with them. Barney is crate trained, and while crated during the day when his foster parents are at work, he does not potty in his crate. He is house trained for the most part and quietly announces his need by standing near the door to be let out. However, not being a fan of inclement weather, Barney will sometimes choose indoor potties just to avoid going out in the rain. Probably as a result of his early experiences with animal control, he has remained steadfastly fearful of leashes and because of this, he will need a fenced yard. He also does not like to go to the vet's office, but he's working with a professional trainer to overcome both fears. With his fairly low energy level, Barnabus is content to curl up on the couch next to you or to play gently, wiggle-waggling his tail as fast as a helicopter. He loves to explore outdoors and just hang out on his own. In a home with that special someone who has lots of love and patience, this youngster will continue to progress and gain confidence. Check out some pictures of Barney during training at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/barnabus . =======================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Barnabus, please go to New Rattitude's website at http://www.NewRattitude.org/adopt.htm, where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application.

Rescue Me ID: 14-01-12-00240Dixie (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Hi, there! I'm Dixie and I just landed here in the 'heart of the south' rescue. Yeah, I know, I'm a little more Rat than Jack, but you know these people '| I came from a place that was busted for cruelty and hoarding. (Yes, the same one as Sam, Bailey, Sadie, Pebbles, Rocky and Hannah.) I lost several of my friends to malnutrition and neglect, but I made it out alive! I have been staying in foster care, but my time ran out. I needed to go somewhere '| quickly. They had to do some shuffling, but they found a space for me. Not sure how they do this all the time for dogs like me'| I just know it takes them a long time to scoop, feed and ... (Read More)clean all of us everyday '| and they all have jobs '| I am such a sweet, gentle girl; a little skittish with strange new objects (took me awhile to warm up to the camera), but very loving and willing to trust. I have a couple of swollen nipples they are concerned about, so I need to see the vet. I've apparently had babies recently, so that may be why. Like Bailey and Sadie, fleas have sadly attributed to some hair loss on my tail and, unfortunately, like Sam, I am heartworm positive. I will need to go through slow-kill treatments before I will be available for adoption; however, we are open to a foster home for me in which to heal during the time I need to stay calm and let the treatments do their work.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rat Terrier in Georgia
    Rat Terrier Dogs can make good pets in Georgia if they match your IifestyIe. The Rat Terrier is a small breed of hunting dog also sometimes known as a Feist. Rat Terriers are vivacious, playful, and bold. This breed is great with children. Adult Rat Terriers adapt well to adoption. Rat Terriers are very smart and trainable. This breed can live in an apartment but needs plenty of vigorous exercise each day. Rat Terriers enjoy romping in a fenced yard, but because they are enthusiastic diggers, fences should be buried or reinforced around the base.
