Animal ID: 1368Cricket (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    Cricket is a petite 7-lb. who is 1 or 2 years old. Cricket came to rescue after being found with a dozen other dogs in the home of their deceased owner. She has come a long way from the shivering terrified little girl she was when she first arrived. She appears not to have been exposed to much of anything outside the walls of her former home. She was unfamiliar with -- and frightened of -- so many 'normal' things like being outdoors, wearing a collar, being held, being touched, taking treats, and drinking out of a water bowl. Thankfully now Cricket is a happy, energetic, playful little girl who loves the outdoors, the company of her foster ... (Read More)family, and most of all playing with other dogs. New situations and new people do still frighten her, but she quickly accepts new doggie friends, and her new adoptive home should have a canine sibling or two. Cricket's house training is a work in progress; she does use potty pads but occasionally misses her target. She is an early riser whose internal alarm clock goes off at about 6:30 a.m. Cricket has a pretty high energy level. She can be a bit barky when excited, runs instead of walks, and will stand up on her back legs to request attention and pats. Cricket's adoptive family will need to be extremely patient with her and be willing to put in the time to gain her trust and help her acclimate to her new home. To find out more about Cricket, please visit her on-line photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/cricket.===============================================================================If you are interested in adopting Cricket, 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: 1369Wendy (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Wendy is a tiny (6 lb.) little girl getting used to normal home life after being found with a dozen other dogs in a crowded house a week after the owner died then taken to a tiny shelter where they were kept in an outdoor kennel. After being rescued and brought to foster care, it has taken Wendy a little time to adjust to the change in circumstances and recover from the effects of neglect, but she is coming along very nicely. She is about 3 years old and just adorable as a puppy. As she has settled in and learned the routine, her house training has become good but is not 100 % reliable. Following a regular schedule is necessary at the ... (Read More)moment. She is completely unfamiliar with walking on leash, but she will allow you to pick her up and goes easily into a carrier. She is still very stand-offish with new people and will keep her distance and bark with apprehension but after a few meetings she is willing to give friendship a try. Wendy does come to her foster parents for ear scratches and jumps in with the pack when treats are being given out. She is much more at ease with dogs than with people, and enjoys sharing a bed or a blanket with another dog. In fact,Wendy looks to other dogs when she is unsure, so it is essential that her new home have at least one other friendly canine to help give her the assurance and comfort that she needs. Her overall energy level is fairly low, but she does like to follow you around to be near where you are. She is happiest curled up in a dog bed at your feet. Please visit Wendy's on-line photo album to see more photos and videos of her: http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/wendy. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Wendy, 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: Average Energy 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    This isn't the exact photo of my puppy. Although this is what he looked like a few months ago. He is almost 2 feet tall. I have previous vet vaccination papers. He has not had a rabies shot yet, nor been neutered. Due to Life changes I can no longer manage Brock. He has a lot of energy, loves to play outside in the grass, and tries to play cats that don't run away. He is a peoples-dog. He doesn't like the scent of berries, and sometimes cigarette smoke. He has some understanding ( no, stop, get down, comes to the call of his name and whistling).

Rescue Me ID: 14-03-30-00441Oink (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,
 Fearful/Anxious 

    Oink wandered up to our back door right before Christmas, cold, malnourished, and very afraid. We could tell that she had been abused and mistreated. We took her in and named her Oink because she ate like a little pig and she made cute oinking noises. When she first came to us she was very fearful and anxious and did not trust anyone. After a lot of hard work and lots of love she has come a long way, although she still needs a lot of love and attention to help her become the wonderful dog that she has the potential to be. She has fit in rather well with our other pets which include cats, another dog, and a rat (well maybe not so much with ... (Read More)the rat, she still wants to eat him). We don't have small children and so we are unsure of how she would be with them. She has a hard time trusting new people but after she gets to know you she will give you her undivided attention. She loves to be in your lap or sitting right next to you. Her favorite toys are squeaking mouse cat toys and balls. As much as we have fallen in love with her, due to a recent unforeseen family separation we are unable to continue to give her the best home that she deserves. Upon adoption we will provide her vaccination records, a bag of her current dog food, and her favorite toys. (Less)

Animal ID: 1384Birch (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Happy-go-lucky Birch is about 1 year old and weighs 14-1/2 lbs. He is playful, friendly, and very loving. He readily greets strangers and enjoys nothing more than attention from whoever will give it to him. He likes kids as long as they're old enough to treat him gently. Birch's house manners are excellent. He is housetrained (and knows how to use a doggie door) and does not mess with things that are not his. At night he sleeps quietly in a crate (with the door open) beside his foster parents' bed. Birch is excellent at walking on leash; he doesn't pull ahead or lag behind or stop to sniff every few feet. Instead he trots right by your side, ... (Read More)speeding up or slowing down to meet your pace. He gets along great with the other dogs in his foster home although he usually prefers to nap in his own space rather than joining in the dog pile on the dog beds. When he has met bigger dogs. he has shown some anxiety so he would probably take a bit to adjust to living with a much bigger dog. Cats are an exciting novelty to Birch and he would definitely give chase if a cat ran. He is not quite sure what to think of a thrown tennis ball, but because he is young and active and eager, he would certainly love for his new family to teach him all about playing! You can see more photos of Birch in his on-line album at http://beales/fosters/birch. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Birch, 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 is a 6-lb, 2 year old boy. He has had a tough time with many new fears to face and changes to life as he knows it. He was found with 13 other dogs in the home of a hoarder who had been dead for more than a week. He was taken to a shelter with the other dogs and housed outside in the cold. After being rescued by New Rattitude, Barnabus tested positive for heartworms. He is currently undergoing treatment and will be ready for adoption by the end of April. With patient, gentle love from his foster family, Barney has come a LONG way from the terrified, defensive little creature he had been on first being rescued. He now loves to have ... (Read More)his face scratched and his head patted. He will jump in his foster mom's lap and give gentle kisses. He is still slow go at first with strangers, who must be patient to allow him time to get to trust them. Barney is doing great with crate training. At night he will cry if he needs to go potty. (This is rare, as he usually sleeps through the night and then welcomes you in the morning with tail wags and happy sounds.) He is potty trained for the most part, and goes to the door to be let out, although he does not indicate his need with a bark or cry, and when it is raining sometimes he will choose indoor potties. He is crated during the day when his foster parents are at work, and he does not potty in his crate. Barnabus gets along well with other dog and he does look to other dogs in the house to learn his new routines, so it would be great if his adoptive family had another dog. He does resource guard favorite toys, and is willing to stand up for what he thinks is his, so personalities should be matched. Overall, his energy level is fairly low, and with his tiny size he would do just fine in an apartment or condo. He spends much of his day curled up on the couch, in your lap, or following you around with a tail wiggle waggle. Barnabus needs a final destination with lots of love and patience, and this youngster will continue to progress and gain confidence. ========================================================================================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.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Howdy, big peoples! I'm Damon and I'm a little angel. I was rescued from an out-of-state puppy mill bust in February. My parents unfortunately knew the horrors, but I was lucky enough to have escaped them. I'm approximately 7 months old, neutered and heartworm negative. I love my littermates, am easygoing and live to give kisses to humans, so I should do great with other dogs and kids. What can I say, I'm kind of perfect!

Animal ID: 1355Teak (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Absolutely everyone who meets Teak totally falls in love with him, humans and dogs alike. He is friendly, social, affectionate, and ready to share his wonderful spirit with you. Teak is a laid-back 2-year old who weighs 16 lbs. He is very gentle, even with young kids, and is extremely well behaved in the house. He is house trained and knows how to use a dog door. He walks great on leash and rides well in the car. You can see from his photo album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/teak how much this handsome guy loves lounging in your lap! He is quite the charmer! Teak is also very congenial with other dogs; while he doesn't very often ... (Read More)engage in active play, he is content to share a bed, hang out, and just be companionable with his canine housemates. He is truly an all-around wonderful dog! Teak came to rescue with a deformed front leg, which was probably from an old injury that was never treated so healed wrong. But he walks, runs, and jumps on it without pain, and it doesn't seem to bother him a bit, so it is purely a cosmetic issue. He hasn't spent time with cats so we're not sure how he would do, but he is not particularly interested in squirrels, and given his sweet, gentle nature, he would probably do fine with a feline sibling.================================================================================If you are interested in adopting this dog, 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.

    Elsie is a fully grown female Terrier Mix. 25 pounds, medium sized dog with all her shots and is spayed. She is very playful, amicable, friendly, enthusiastic. She loves to be with her humans, but also gets along very well with other dogs. She is good with adults- male and female and children. Not sure about cats . She is housebroken and is learning her commands. Elsie is a very lucky dog- she was slated to be euthanized but due to a glitch in the paperwork, they missed her. She was brought to her foster home and is happy to play, run and give love to everyone she meets. Named after Mrs Elise Hughes- the housekeeper of Downton Abbey- ...

Animal ID: 1363Casper (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    Casper was in a Georgia shelter for far too long! He had rescue commitment several times, but something always fell through, and he was scheduled to be put down the day New Rattitude pulled him. What a mistake that would have been! Casper is 1-1/2 years old -- no longer a silly puppy, yet young enough to be playful and full of life. He came underweight with ribs showing, but is now a muscular 21 lbs. Casper is good with other dogs. He hasn't been around cats while in his foster home. In true terrier style, Casper will patrol the yard, nose alert for vermin, determined to keep the squirrels away. The only thing more exciting than squirrel ... (Read More)chasing is treat time. Treats are a great way to recall him back inside when you need him. Casper loves people! Parties are all right by him; he feels the more the better. He loves children, too! He is good with toddlers, but is pretty strong and stands tall next to them, and is having to learn not to jump on them to give them kisses. Casper is reliably house trained except for initially marking behind another male in the house when he first arrived. He needs work on a leash due to some pulling, and he does require a harness as he is eager to explore the world. With some more practice, he will likely become a great leash walker. Casper would do best in a home with a doggie door and fenced yard. Like a child, he likes going in and out frequently. He is an explorer and jumps fairly high, but stays contained in a 4 foot fence. He would be a great dog for an active family that likes outdoor adventures. He rides well in a car (crated). He is crate trained during working hours, but at night he has been sleeping loose in the family room. Casper isn't a big barker. When he hears the food tin coming out of the cabinet he will come flying into the house and go right into his kennel in anticipation of his meal. Sometimes when his foster mom is running late, she will notice him in the kennel right on schedule! His tummy can tell time. He loves affection, is a great snuggler, and enjoys spending time lounging with you. He is playful, good natured and a great guy to hang with and enjoy as part of the family. Please check out his on-line photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/casper.========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Casper, 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: 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.

Animal ID: 1324Mike (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Mike is an approximately 4-year old Rat Terrier who gets along great with other dogs and cats. He weighs around 12 lbs. Mike loves to play with the other dogs in his foster home, where he currently lives with 6 dogs of various sizes (from a 3-lb.Chihuahua to a 50-lb. Malinois) and 1 cat. He is great at fetching. He is also a very good runner partner. Mike is crate trained and house trained. He is very food motivated and will take to positive training very easily. Mike is really a happy-go-lucky little guy. The first day he arrived at the foster home, he was already asking the other dogs to play with him. As there are no young children in the ... (Read More)foster home, we do not know how he interacts with young children; however, Mike loves meeting new people and has loved everyone he has met so far. He travels well in the car and is not reactive to other dogs that he meets on his daily walks around the neighborhood.

Animal ID: 1271Willy (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Willy is one special guy! He is 7 years old and weighs approximately 15 lbs. Sweet Willy ended up at the shelter because he lost his people. He was so very scared there. He really is a mild mannered little gentleman who is reliably house trained. He is not a high energy boy and is content to just hang out with his person. Willy does have some issues that are somewhat of a puzzle, but even though we don't know what happened in his past to cause the issues, they are easily dealt with. For example, he has an issue with turning left. He doesn't like the leash and he is sensitive to touch if you approach him as a surprise. And his previous owners ... (Read More)did not teach him any commands. But Willy is such a love bug none the less. He is quite shy at first with other dogs, but once he gets to know them he likes them, and if they want to play, count him in! He likes to announce any guests to the house and he uses his bark to communicate. Willy would be great with a family with other pets - cats or dogs. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body. He is very devoted to his person and would make a perfect pet for a mature single or couple in a quiet home.

Animal ID: 1200KeeWee (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Senior

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

    Miss KeeWee is 9 lbs. of Senior Diva. At age 14, she is a tiny little girl who loves to snuggle into her blankets, watch TV, and just cuddle with you while being cute. She is a little shy at first, but will warm up if given a chance to get to know you. She is not overly active, preferring to just hang out on the sofa and watch every move you make while you go about your daily duties. She will go outside with you if you work in the yard, and enjoys soaking up rays and just smelling the smells when it is sunny, but her stamina is not great and will ask to be let back inside after a short time so that she can enjoy her sofa. She is not a fan of ... (Read More)extreme weather, and enjoys sweaters in winter and air conditioning in summer. KeeWee is mostly housebroken if kept to a schedule and does a very cute little dance-and-bark routine when she asks to be let outside. She does not use a doggy door even though one is available in her foster home. KeeWee would do best in a home with someone who is home all day or at least not left for long periods. She prefers not to sleep in a crate and really prefers to sleep in bed with you or in a soft blanket on the sofa. She gets along with other dogs, but does get upset if she is accidentally bumped by one of the bigger dogs, and she will let them know that, as queen of the house, she should be treated well. Because she is such a small dog, she will do best in a home with no small children and no overly active dogs. KeeWee eats a soft diet because her difficult life has left her with only one remaining tooth. But she will gladly accept any soft treats you want to offer. She also has a heart murmur. This very sweet, loving little girl is looking for a home for her sunset years where she will be loved cherished. ================================================================================================If you are interested in adopting KeeWee, 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: 1154Wilson (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Wilson is a wonderful boy who is looking for someone who enjoys playing ball and Frisbee, and he promises to be ready whenever you are. In fact, everyone that he meets is introduced to his ball, and he believes that everyone must enjoy playing with it as much as he does! He has even been known to approach complete strangers in PetSmart with toys and ask them to play. Here is Wilson -- a wonderful boy who is looking for someone who enjoys playing ball, Frisbee, and just being around a great dog. Wilson is muscular and weighs 16 lbs. He is around 9 years old and in that time has developed impeccable house manners and learned basic obedience ... (Read More)commands. He knows sit, down, and stay, and he will find his toys and 'search' on command. With his very cute swagger, Wilson enjoys collecting toys and helping you with whatever you happen to be doing. Most of the time, you will see him carrying his ball around in his mouth so that he can be ready for some fun at the slightest notice. On a recent trip to PetSmart (which he thoroughly enjoys!) he found a ball that he thought his foster mom really needed to buy, and decided that an older gentleman would be a great person to test it with, so he walked right up to him, dropped the ball at his feel, and asked him to please throw it for him. He made a friend that day! Wilson does enjoy meeting new people, and he enjoys playing with his ball so much that he believes that everyone must enjoy playing with it, too. But people should not grab at him because he finds that worrisome, and sudden moves like that may elicit a snap response. Because of this, Wilson is not a good choice for a home with young children. He is very loving if given time to get to know someone, but it does take some time for him to develop trust. He usually does not get up on the furniture unless invited, but he has progressed now to sitting on the sofa with his foster dad to watch TV in the evenings. Wilson gets along well with other dogs close to his own size but does not like dogs that tower over him or aggressive dogs. He is house trained either to a doggy door or he will tell you when he needs to go outside. He is also crate trained, but he prefers sleeping on a pillow with a blanket next to your bed or in the living room where he can keep an eye on the door to make sure no one uninvited tries to come in. He is not an excessive barker, but will announce the arrival of someone and then ask you if they are ok. Wilson is a wonderful boy who will do best in a terrier-savvy, patient home where, after a little time to develop trust, he will be an awesome and loyal companion.

Animal ID: 0485Rosa (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Male Dogs Only 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    My name is Rosa. I'm an adorable, low-key, 12-lb. blind girl looking for a loving home. Wanna be my guide human? Actually, I don't need much in the way of guidance; in fact, I'll probably be more of a help to you with my companion dog superpowers! At 6 years old, I am a mighty lap warmer and a bionic snuggle-bear. I even have natural assistance dog abilities and will wake from a sound sleep to walk across the room and insist that I be held to calm my stressed person. Doesn't everyone need that sometimes? And did you know that I win Best House Trained Dog every time? I'm also crate trained and have lots of good house manners, too. As for ... (Read More)scenting abilities . . . well, no need to be modest about my amazing talent. They don't call me 'The Nose' for nothing! I give the best fuzzy face kisses and I like to make my human friends laugh with my rompin' and stompin' play moves. (Get a preview in my little video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXE1dUhEVxI .) Although I'm initially kind of shy, once I get to know kids, adults, or male dogs, I like pets and laps and play. And bones. And ear skritches. And food! Mmm, I do like all kinds of food so I also like to work for treats! I try to chase cats, but I don't get very far and eventually I give up. I'm really very easy-going with one exception: I don't get along with assertive female dogs at all. Well, everybody gets their buttons pushed sometimes, don't they? Oh, and I am six years old and weigh only 12 lbs. For more photos of my cute little self, you can see my photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/rosa. ================================================================================================If you are interested in adopting this dog, 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.
