    MEET THE EVER SO GORGEOUS ROSE... This tiny Rat Terrier was sitting in the shelter ,cowered in the corner. We got the call that she was so shy she needed out of there. I reached my hands in and got her, she fell into my chest and the rest is a new beginning for her. YOU know she is one sly one to have fooled all the staff at the shelter..she was waiting on just the right one to reach in for her. She was picked up in an area where a known hoarder lives and we suspect it was one of hers escaping all the dogs. She is 2-3 yrs old and weighs 11 lbs. She is spayed, UTD on shots and just a doll. She was very shy when we left there and it has been ... (Read More)a joy to watch her blossom like the ROSE she is.

Animal ID: 1835Kay-leigh (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Introducing Kay-leigh! This small, dainty girl of 9 lbs. seems to have a guardian angel looking out for her. Confiscated with seven other dogs as part of a cruelty case, she ended up in a very high-kill shelter in Louisiana, where she was rescued by New Rattitude. The vet at the shelter thought that she was 3-4 years, but we think she might be just a bit older. Things continued to look up for Kay-leigh after her rescue. She was found to test positive for heart worms, but she has successfully completed her treatment now and is showing her appreciation by trying to be the World's Best Lap Dog. Her favorite 'activity' is to sit with her person ... (Read More)and be petted. She would be the perfect companion for someone whose life and household is fairly unchaotic. Her foster home has other dogs and a cat, and she gets along great with everyone as long as they don't try to eat her food or bother her when she's napping. Kay-leigh is house-trained but needs extra encouragement to go out if it's pouring rain, and she loves taking walks and riding in the car. This sweet, snuggly gal is ready to hitch her wagon to her next lucky star, and she's wondering if maybe YOU have a lap that needs warming. See more pictures of Kay-leigh in her online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/kayleigh . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Kay-leigh, 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: 1820Chelsea (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sweet Chelsea was so scared on the day she was rescued (the very day she had been scheduled to be put down) that we thought her little tail might never wag again. Testing positive for heart worms and very dirty, this 3-year-old Rattie mix with soulful eyes had every right to look sad. But fast forward a few months and today Chelsea is a happy, healthy 15-lb. tail-wagging terrier who loves playing catch with a tennis ball and delights in being with you all the time, even snuggled beside you at bedtime. Chelsea is house-trained, knows basic commands, and gets along with dogs and other pets, though she'd be happiest sharing your love with no ... (Read More)more than one other pet. She's also comfortable with older children, first grade and up. Now that she has completed her heart worm treatment, Chelsea will be spayed, and this cuddly pup should be ready to go to her forever home in March. Because car rides seem to restimulate Chelsea's memories of past traumatic events, transport to her adopter needs to be kept as short as possible. Therefore, Chelsea is available only for adoption within a 30-mile radius of Alpharetta, Ga.You can see a video of Chelsea frolicking with her doggy friends in her online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/chelsea . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Chelsea, 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: 1839Adele (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    When you look into Adele's soulful eyes, you'll feel her gentle spirit and immediately recognize that this 16-lb. beauty is one dream of a dog. Her list of wonderful qualities is a long one. Though it may take her a moment to warm up, she seems to get along with all dogs, both large and small. Her bark is infrequent and short-lived. She's 7-8 years old, fully house trained, and a perfect traveler in a car. Adele appears to like everyone. She adores getting affection and being talked to and is an absolute love around children. She doesn't jump up on furniture and will quietly sleep in her crate, if you want. She'll also happily sleep with ... (Read More)you, though she's hesitant about being lifted. She does appear to have some arthritis and currently takes an anti-inflammatory, which seems make her more comfortable, and a joint supplement. In her prior life, she may have had some type of accident because her gait is a little 'off,' but she appears to have fully recovered, except for the slightly unusual gait and the bit of arthritis. This dream of a dog is also a dreamer herself. And what does sweet Adele dream of? Simply to be loved and pampered by a family or person to call her own. Wouldn't you like to make Adele's dream come true? Check out more pictures of her in her online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newRattitude/Adele . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Adele, please go to New Rattitude's web site at http://www.NewRattitude.org/adopt.htm where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application.

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Penny! Found dirty and terrified by a kindhearted person in the middle of a busy street in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, this sweet 8-year-old brings new meaning to the phrase 'a penny saved...' This Penny is a real keeper!! Not surprisingly, she can be a bit slow to warm up, but if you give her patience and provide reassurance, she'll get comfortable and become a total love. Weighing just 10 lbs., pretty Penny thinks she's all the dog you could want and would be quite happy to be the only dog in a quiet, calm household. And she'll help maintain the serenity of your home with her beautiful manners. She's house-trained, and she comes when ... (Read More)called. She never runs, rides beautifully in a car, and walks like a dream on a leash. Would you have room in your heart for this special angel?

Rat Terrier    Age: Senior

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

    I have had Bud for 8 years and love him to death. The only reason I am trying to rehome him is that my son is apparently allergic to dogs. I hate having to get rid of him because he has been my baby for so long. I will only let him go to a good home. I require that I see where he will be and ask that you meet him first to make sure that he will be a good match for you. He is a sweet dog. He is older so he likes to lounge on the couch but he loves his walks. He is not an outside dog. He needs cuddles and love. If you are interested in him please let me know. I am not asking any fees for him but a donation to an animal shelter of your choice ... (Read More)would always be appreciated. Thank you! (Less)

Animal ID: 1661Noella (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Noella is a young, playful Rat Terrier-Whippet mix about 3 years old and 27 lbs. Fun is Noella's formula for life, and she'll draw you in with her big smile and inviting play bow for a romp in the yard, toy chasing, or even a gentle wrestle. Highly sensitive and sweetly affectionate, she will be happy to join you for a quiet rest too. She is reliably house-trained, has some lovely house manners, and is learning to modulate her naturally exuberant bark. Noella gets along well with the familiar dogs who live with her. She is crate-trained, but she can also be trusted loose in the house when she's home alone (as long as your counters are clear ... (Read More)of food). She even knows how to use a potty pad. She is a calm car traveler and loves long walks in a harness and exploring nature trails. As adorable as she is, Noella does have some behavior challenges. A fenced yard is required since she is afraid of unfamiliar people and dogs, and she can bark and/or lunge in fear while on leash. She has bitten strangers who came into her home. She has safely and lovingly shared a home with children, but currently cannot be trusted around children she does not know. She is being worked with on these issues, and New Rattitude offers behavior modification coaching and support to adopters. Despite her fear issues, Noella is a cuddly doll at home with her people, and she knows how to love big and have fun. See more photos at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/noella . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Noella, 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: 1352BlueBelle (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Life in a puppy mill is a miserable existence, but life there as a breeding dog is a special kind of horror. For four years, that was the only life BlueBelle knew, and it has left its mark on her, both physically and behaviorally. The two teeth that you see in her photos are the only ones she has, and she eats a raw diet due to her allergies. She didn't get the chance to learn how to be sociable with humans while her puppy brain was forming and she was just trying to survive in impoverished, frightening conditions. As a result, her behaviors were like those of a feral dog when she first came to New Rattitude and a veterinary behaviorist ... (Read More)diagnosed her with an especially severe case of fears and phobias. As you might expect, 7-year-old BlueBelle is not at all like the average, friendly, playful, lap-sitting, walking buddy that most people imagine when they hear the words 'Rat Terrier.' Quiet and small at only 12 lbs., Belle longs for (and deserves) a calm home with loving, gentle adults only, who will respect her need for space, letting her choose whether and when to be touched. In the past, Belle has lived peacefully with a cat but never with children. She'll need at least one canine companion in her new home so that she has a friend and can learn doggy routines. In fact, she's curious about new dogs and loves sweet, small dogs like herself, but she'll demand her personal dog-free resting space and do it with a snarl, if necessary. Her threats, however, are reserved for other dogs, and she has never been aggressive toward a person. BlueBelle is house-trained and uses potty pads when no one is home to let her out. She doesn't walk on a leash, so she must have a fenced yard. Her new home should be within easy driving distance of Bogart, Georgia, so that her foster mom can help her transition and avoid any undue panic. Bluebelle won't return your love in the way most approachable dogs would. You'll need to be able to read her subtle signals and take pleasure in small gains, like feeling her stretch a little to nestle more closely into you. But if you've had experience with extremely shy dogs and are the kind of person whose heart will swell simply at the sight of Belle pausing as she takes a drink of water to look you in the eye and ever so briefly wiggling her gray nubbin of a tail, then you may have found your special girl! Take a peek at more photos of beautiful BlueBelle in her online album at http://www.imageevent.com/newrattitude/bluebelle . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting BlueBelle, 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: 1540Perrito (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Patience is a virtue, they say, so Perrito must be one virtuous pup! You see, he's been waiting and waiting for a VPH (very precious human) to adopt him so that together they can enjoy the beautiful relationship that only a special dog and an equally special person can experience. Perrito can be a mellow fellow, enjoying ambling walks, sitting by your side, and following you around the house, and he can be a delightfully devilish dynamo, entertaining you by tugging, chasing, and pouncing on his favorite toys with terrier gusto! So what, then, is special about Perrito and why does he need a special person to love and care for him? Well, in ... (Read More)addition to packing a huge, quirky, lovable personality into his short, adorable 8-lb. body, this tiny 10-year-old powerhouse also comes with some behavioral and medical issues. He's house-trained, but he also has a condition that doesn't give him much time between feeling the need to urinate and the act itself, so when he has to go, he has to go NOW--no waiting around for a leash to be put on. (He'd appreciate a fenced yard and, if you have to leave him alone for more than a couple of hours, an enclosed indoor space with pee pads.) In addition, Perrito walks politely on leash and likes to meet new people as long as they don't touch him. You might say he has a thing about being touched. He doesn't like to be touched by surprise or handled in certain ways, and because he has bitten in these situations, he can't be adopted to a home with preteen children. On the other hand, once he knows you well, he'll request an ear scratch or back massage. You should see him melt into a good back massage (of course he'll tell you how to perform it to his specifications). Perrito gets along with the six other dogs in his foster home, but he can be grouchy and will guard his food and toys. Nevertheless, if you need to leave him home alone, he should have another dog companion because he seems to have a fear of abandonment. He's also afraid of being left outside and will feel more secure when you're outdoors with him. To complicate matters a bit, Perrito has had multiple bouts of pancreatitis (chronic pancreatitis) and needs a special raw diet provided in four small daily meals, along with supplements. He also takes fluoxetine (generic Prozac) for Canine Compulsive Disorder. His food and medication needs add up to about $70 per month, not an exorbitant cost, but a significant one, especially when your time and responsibilities are factored in. Perrito's foster person is ready to work with you to help him transition to his real, forever home. Don't feel sorry for him because of his special needs, but DO take a look at the pictures and videos of him at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/perrito . When you see this tough little dude 'recycling' bottles or playing catch with his ball, you'll be touched by his indomitable spirit. And maybe, just maybe, (despite the chance that he won't want to cuddle with you), you'll be special enough to know that Perrito deserves not to be kept waiting any longer. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Perrito, 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.

    Star is very shy at the beginning but once she knows you she will overwhelm with cuddles and love. She loves to play with her brothers and sisters. Since she is a mix of Australian Cattle dog and terrier she can be very stubborn, so she needs a strong Hand. Best would be an single, older but active Lady looking for a loving companion that does not have a lot of male foot traffic. She is great with kids but I would prefer older once (over 10). For some unknown reason Star is terrified for man. Star is not very tall about knee high (35-40 lb) and is create trained.

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.
