    Our dog needs a new home, he's becoming more unfriendly toward our son and we are expecting more children in June. It's with sadness that we must rehome him but I'm praying to do so rather than other options! Any help would be greatly appreciated in this matter

Animal ID: 1736Tucker (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Introducing Tucker!! This amazing puppy weighs about 10 lbs. and is only 6 months old, but he's already full of personality. Some of his favorite things are riding in the car, sleeping in the 'people bed,' getting treats, going for walks, playing with squeaky toys, and snuggling with his people! He plays nonstop until he nearly passes out or until you call him over for some ear rubs and those awesome snuggles. This little guy does relish attention and is very sociable. He loves his people and other gentle dogs and isn't pushy with them at all. He is OK with cats but would rather just ignore them. Tucker is also one smart cookie. This boy is ... (Read More)already housebroken! He has also already learned 'sit' and is working on 'stay.' He will stay in a crate, but he will start to get anxious if he thinks he's been confined alone too long. For that reason, he hopes that his new family will let him sleep in bed with them and that maybe one of them is home much of the day. And since Tucker's so young and still uses his mouth when excited and jumps on you for attention, he should probably not live in a home with young children (say, age 10 or under). Reducing the mouthing and jumping are things he's working on in his foster home, but he'll need to continue his education in these subjects after he's adopted. This sweet, tiny boy will keep your lap warm and keep you smiling with his crazy antics and huge personality! Please visit Tucker's online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/tucker . ========================================================================================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.

Rescue Me ID: 16-03-07-00225Danica (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Mange (Demodectic) 

    Danica is a very sweet, playful mixed-breed puppy. I took her out for the dog for a day program with Fulton County and she stole my heart but i cannot have animals at my house and my lease isn't up until August. She is about a year and a half and was found wandering around on the streets. She was attacked by the other dogs that she was housed with because she wanted to play, so now she is in a small kennel alone. She is on the list to be euthanized due to this. I need someone to either foster or her adopt her ASAP. She is sweet with children and humans. She loves to be close to you and likes to sunbathe on her back. She is precious! Please ... (Read More)reach out if you have any interest or know anyone who might. Thanks! (Less)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Meet little 12 pound Orion. He is about 7 to 8 months old and is a jack russell terrier / rat terrier. He is a marvel with his one bright blue eye and his brown eye. He has your typical terrier personality in that he makes what is his known. He does get along with the other dogs as long as everyone knows he is the 'big' dog. He is super playful, loving and affectionate. He is leash and house trained as well. This little bundle of energy needs a loving home with older children only. To apply to adopt go to brantleyanimalrescuecoalition.weebly.com and fill out an adoption application.

Animal ID: 1709Sioux (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Senior

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    How big is YOUR heart? Sweet Sioux has one of the biggest hearts we've ever seen...literally. It's so big that it fills her chest cavity and makes it hard for her to breathe deeply. Worse than that, it has a slow, irregular rhythm that doesn't do a good job of circulating blood throughout her little 15-lb. body. So 12-year-old Sioux probably does not have a very long life ahead of her. But she greets each day with a sweet, gentle, happy disposition and an enthusiastically wagging tail. Who would adopt a dog that likely has only a few months left to live? Someone who wants an affectionate and loyal companion...who appreciates a dog that is ... (Read More)remarkably easy to care for...and who has enough compassion to offer an older gal a comfortable, safe, and loving home in which to pass her remaining days. Sioux is house trained and has great house manners. She is quiet and calm and self sufficient. She walks well on leash but is quite slow due to her age, and because of her heart problems she does not require walks or any exercise beyond regular potty breaks. Her preference would be for a home without stairs where someone is home with her most of the time. Sioux gets along very sweetly with people and with most other dogs, but she finds a lot of commotion pretty overwhelming so would prefer a home as an only dog or perhaps with just one or two other low-key canine companions. Her vision and hearing aren't as sharp as they used to be, but she still knows when it's dinner time and she will do a little happy dance for you. Sioux's medical condition is not one that can benefit from treatment, so she does not have any ongoing veterinary needs or expenses. Because she most likely will cross the Rainbow Bridge sometime in 2016 (although that is not certain, of course), some compassionate donors have subsidized her adoption fee, hopefully making it easier for someone with an equally big heart to make the decision to give her a final loving home. Please check out the photos of Sioux in her online photo album at www.ImageEvent.com/beales/fosters/sioux . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Sioux, 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: 16-01-17-00430Saffy (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Saffy is the tiniest big sister ever. Saffy - a Rat Terrier - is the oldest of 6 lucky females rescued from a neglectful home in the summer of 2015. When she was spayed, the vet estimated Saffy to be a little over 7 years old. Saffy is a velcro doll. She will find comfort curling up in the tiniest of spaces - as long as they are near a human. She is a gentle soul and great with other dogs.

Animal ID: 1585Lola (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Lola is an adorable feisty dog, a Rat Terrier mix with a touch of Chihuahua perhaps. She was rescued in the spring of 2015 from a Georgia animal control facility, where she had been turned in as a stray. This lively girl is about 2 years old and weighs 18 lbs. She loves to play, and like a typical Rattie, she has those familiar playful bursts of energy. Perhaps due to abuse, Lola can be unpredictable and aggressive toward people and other animals. She has a bite history and is triggered by petite females and children. She is a work in progress, currently receiving coaching and training. But Lola truly does love her humans; she is very ... (Read More)protective of everyone in her foster household. After a warm-up period which included some altercations, she now plays well with the two other dogs in the household. She is a good watchdog, who will alert you when she hears a knock or strange noises. To see more photos of Lola, please visit http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/lola . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Lola, 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.

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.
