Animal ID: 1862Nyala (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Spunky, spunky, spunky! Nyala may be blind, but it will take you a while to even notice it because she lives confidently in her environment and does not let her blindness interfere with her enjoyment of life. It takes her just a day or so to learn a new location, and she will then scamper around freely, even running up and down stairs, hopping down off the sofa, and standing on her back legs to sniff hopefully around the counter where the dog food is kept. She is ultra reliably house-trained and will find the door and stand there to let you know she is ready to go out. And if you're not paying attention, she will scratch at the door to hurry ... (Read More)you along. She similarly lets you know when she is ready to come back in, although if it's a nice, sunny day she may just enjoy basking in the yard for a while. Nyala is about 9 years old and weighs a little under 10 lbs. She seems to have been someone's beloved pet because she sure does expect you to share your snacks with her. (She may sing and yodel until you firmly tell her 'no!') Maybe a bad diet gave her the severe dental problems she found herself with, although that will soon be behind her after her dental surgery in early April. Nyala gets along wonderfully with other dogs, even when they ignorantly barge into her. She also loves people, though she does find it startling when a new voice suddenly appears in 'her' house and in this respect is a great watchdog. She walks really well and confidently on leash. Although it might seem that she should be listed as a Special Needs dog, Nyala is actually a lot easier to care for than most of the 'normal needs' dogs we've seen. She checks things out, figures them out, then chills out, and just settles in to enjoy daily life, and her blindness is totally a nonissue. Still, because the average person won't consider adopting a dog with no eyes, she deserves some extra attention. Will you give it to her by visiting her album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/nyala ? ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Nyala, 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.

    This little guy showed up at my house in the very cold weather. He's VERY sweet. He was a little nervous at first but is settling in now. He is a little older and very skinny. He has a safe warm place for now but with 4 small children and very busy schedules, we cannot keep him. I don't want to send him to animal control where he will he put to sleep.

Animal ID: 1861Lexie (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This pint-sized ball of energy is Lexie, a 12-lb. 1-year-old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix, who was pulled from an overcrowded Georgia shelter, where she landed after being picked up as a stray. Since arriving at her foster home, Lexie has been working hard to understand that the world doesn't have to be a scary place, but it sure can be tough trying to be brave. There's lots of stuff out there to frighten a little gal--things like loud noises, cars, and strangers. Fortunately for Lexie, there are a bunch of things that make life really awesome too. There are squeaky toys, bully sticks, belly rubs, and there's food, of course! Yes, this little ... (Read More)girl is a voracious eater! She really wants to maintain her svelte figure, though, so she knows exercise is important. However, she's not a fan of the leash and has achieved a leash-walking distance of only about 100 feet, so Miss Lexie is really hoping you'll have a nice fenced yard where she can feel safe while she runs and romps. Also, since she has such a good relationship with her canine foster sister, Lexie thinks it would be super if you had another gentle dog who might want to become her buddy and help 'show her the ropes.' It likely won't come as a surprise to learn that Lexie dreams of a forever home with quiet, patient adults only. The sudden movements and grabby hands of young children might cause her to nip if she were caught off guard. Lexie is doing well with crate training and potty training. Much of the time, she will go to the door when she needs to go out, and keeping her on a potty schedule will help her be even more successful. Just one or two glances at Lexie's soft, dark eyes is all it takes to see that this sweetheart is a special girl. And just one glance more will convince you that she deserves to grow into a confident, well-adjusted doggy in a loving home like yours. Check out more pictures of Lexie in her online photo album at http://ImageEvent.com/newrattitude/lexie . =======================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Lexie, please go to New Rattitude's website at http://www.NewRattitude.

    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: 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: 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.

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

    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.
