|Animal ID: 2103Coco Chanel (female)|
Just like the creations of her namesake, Coco Chanel is uniquely designed, a mixture of Rat Terrier and Beagle genes with an ample helping of puppy joie de vivre including a traditional beagle howl when she gets going! Because 3-month-old Coco Chanel is a puppy, she's still learning about outdoor pottying, but her house-training is coming along quite well if she's kept on a regular schedule. Her adopter should be available most of the day to help her continue to learn and to have ample outdoor time. She also is making strides in sleeping in her crate at night. Coco Chanel enjoys sinking her teeth into shoes as well as the occasional toe and hasn't yet made the distinction between the two, so she'll appreciate your help in guiding her as to what constitutes appropriate chewing. Because of Coco Chanel's diminutive size (4 lbs.), any children in her home should be gentle and old enough to understand puppy behavior, including the fact that puppy play might involve sharp puppy teeth. This mademoiselle is incredibly friendly with everybody she meets, and in typical puppy fashion, she enjoys a good amount of playtime interspersed with plenty of lap time. Coco Chanel's favorite scent is that infamous, always-in-fashion 'Puppy Breath,' and while she certainly is a designer's dream with a beautiful face fit for a magazine cover, Coco Chanel would much prefer to cover a lap with her own monogram of 'CC' (cuteness and charm). Might yours be the lap she's waiting to grace? If you answer, 'Oui, oui,' check out Coco Chanel's photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/cocochanel. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING COCO CHANEL, 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: 18-04-16-00411Sunshine (female)|
Meet beautiful, little Sunshine. Sunshine is about ten pounds and is about 2 years old. Her owner, who asked rescue to help with them, before he passed away, loved his pets dearly. Unfortunately, neighborhood teenagers taunted them from the other side of the fence leaving Sunshine quite timid until she gets to know you. Whoever adopts her will have to understand the need for her to build trust and be patient. She only takes a couple of days to warm up to you though. After that, she only wants to snuggle on your lap and sleep cuddled next to you. She is fiercely loyal after that and will make you very glad you took the time to give her that chance to show you how bright and warm Sunshine can be. She needs to go to a home with a fenced yard and only adults due to her fear of being taunted by young ones. To apply to adopt, go to brantleyanimalrescuecoalition.weebly.com (Less)

|Animal ID: 2091Nipper (male)|
Nipper is a love bug! This 10-lb. 2-year-old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix (heavy on the Chihuahua) wants nothing more than to be with you, either in your lap or helping you in some fashion. Indoors Nipper's special brand of assistance consists of offering company while you watch TV, read a book, or work at your computer. He will also provide security detail, making sure your vacuum cleaner doesn't misbehave when it's turned on. Outside he will chase pesky squirrels for you and perform neighborhood watch, alerting you with his bark to joggers and UPS deliveries. (He will hush if you tell him, but he feels it's his duty to provide security services.) Nipper is house-trained if kept to a schedule for potty breaks and feeding, and he has mastered the dog door for excursions to the backyard. He's also crate trained and will sleep in his crate at night, but he'll readily join you in bed if you prefer. He gets along well with the other dogs in his foster home, but because of his high prey drive he would do best in a home without cats, pocket pets, free-range chickens, or small children, who might be frightened by his urge to chase them. He likes people and will be friendly with them if they're introduced slowly, but you'll always be No. 1 in his eyes. Nipper is quite excited about the thought of having his very own person to love and serve. Visit his online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/nipperhamptonga to get an idea of the fun and snuggles that Nipper can bring to your home. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING NIPPER, 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: 2090Bosco (male)|
Cute-as-a-button Bosco is a lap warmer with prey drive. (Fortunately he doesn't pursue both passions at the same time.) A likely Rattie mix, who is just 2 years old and weighs a lightweight 12 lbs., Bosco loves people, other dogs, and chasing and treeing squirrels. He makes a fine assistant; he'll 'help' you work in the yard, watch television, read a book, or work on your computer. He's also a great guard dog, barking at the garbage truck, joggers running by, and the UPS man, but he will hush when told. A smart little dog and eager to please, Bosco is house-trained if fed and taken out on a regular schedule, and he has learned many new things since arriving at his foster home. He has learned how to go in and out the dog door, that there are chickens in the chicken pen, and that the other dogs in his foster home are his best buds. Because of his high prey drive, his adopters should probably not have cats, pocket pets, or free-range chickens. Small children, who might be frightened by his love of the chase, would also not be a good idea, but older children would probably be fine. Bosco asked us to add that a fenced yard, where he could freely patrol for critters, and a warm lap, where he could receive some lovin', are high on his list of desired amenities. If you're not already thoroughly convinced that Bosco's coming to your house, venture over to his online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/boscohamptonga . That should seal the deal. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING BOSCO, 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: 2099Pippin (male)|
A kindhearted vet refused to perform the 'convenience euthanasia' that Pippin's former owner was requesting when she said she just didn't want him anymore. The vet recognized that although Pippin is 14 years old, he is still in good health, happy, and ready to enjoy several more years of life. So New Rattitude was called in to give him that chance. Pippin is an amiable little 15-lb. fellow who is reliably house-trained, perfectly mannered, and friendly with people and other dogs. Yeah, his vision may be dimming a bit and his hearing is definitely diminished, but that doesn't stop him from trotting and even running joyfully around the yard to investigate interesting things and drive off intruding birds, and he thoroughly enjoys a walk around the neighborhood. His few remaining teeth are nice and clean after his recent dental, and he sure does enjoy his treats. Some stiffness in the back legs makes him reluctant to jump up onto furniture, so he appreciates a soft bed on the floor--or multiple beds so that he can make his selection near you, wherever you are. Indoors he is usually very quiet, but when outside he may bark to alert you to activity going on next door or to let you know when he is ready to come in. Because Pippin does not like to have his feet touched or to be picked up, he is not a good choice for a family with young kids. But for a household looking for an affectionate, easy-to-care-for companion who isn't too needy or clingy, this calm, confident fellow will be a perfect match. Please check out more photos of him in his online album at http://www.imageevent.com/beales/fosters/pippin. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING PIPPIN, 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: 1860Franklin (male)|
I'm Franklin, or Frankie to my friends and Handsome Little Prince to my close friends for obvious reasons. I'm a lean and tall 15 lbs. with about 8 years of mature manners. In addition to my good looks, I am well house-trained, crate trained, and a polite companion on walks. I am too humble to claim this myself, but I've been told I'm a doggy genius. I admit I'm a fast study when trained with positive reinforcement. I really want to be petted, but my neck hurts as I'm still recovering from a spinal cord injury there and sometimes I get inflammation down my back, too. I can get scared that hands reaching for me or dogs bumping into me will cause pain, so I may defend myself with a bite. Sometimes I make a screamy sound first, which works pretty well to make those scary things give me space, but I hope you can understand why I don't like to be surprised by touch, especially when I'm sleeping, or why I shouldn't be around kids or dogs who won't respect my space. Everyone who gives me space is my friend, and I like to meet new people and polite dogs. I live harmoniously with lots of small dogs but no cats, so my foster mom doesn't speculate how I might act around cats. I have cleverly devised a way to be petted safely by carefully rubbing my head under an offered hand, and I like to sit in the laps of trusted people. I love to play with soft toys and run and roll like a goofball, with human laughter making me even happier. I'm sensitive to raindrops touching me, but I've learned to run outside to pee anyway. I used to be afraid of the dark outside, but now I warn away what might be lurking in the shadows with my princely bark. Just a few barks here and there, nothing crazy--just enough to put random creatures on notice. Not to brag, but everywhere I go, women adore me. My foster mom says it's because of my lovably quirky personality and not just because I'm so debonair, which you can see in my photos at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/franklin . I've done some traveling in my time, and I'm ready to settle down into my forever home to love gentle folks who understand me. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Franklin, 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.

Athens, GA 30601 MAP IT!
|Animal ID: 1792Penny (female)|
Penny was found wandering the streets of Louisiana over a year ago. When she was first brought into her foster home, she was afraid of everything and wouldn't let anyone touch her. No one will ever know the horrors she may have endured before being rescued, but the patience of her foster parents and Penny's own inner strength, along with an inexpensive antianxiety medication, have helped her work on overcoming her fears based in the past. She has come far! Today this 12-lb. Rattie (probably mixed with a dash of Chihuahua) will sleep next to her foster mom on the couch if her little bed is placed there, and she'll even offer her foster mom a lick on the nose. A pretty 9-year-old with gorgeous white eyelashes, Penny is fully house-trained and follows basic commands. She is a quiet communicator, who will stare at you with her warm, dark eyes to tell you that she wants something. Penny has learned that it's OK to take pleasure in life. She loves to run around the fenced backyard and to play hide-and-seek inside. She thinks it's great fun to chase and sniff out treats that have been tossed into various rooms in the house. She absolutely adores riding in the car! She also enjoys walks but still needs more training with the leash. When you come home, she delights in running up to you, so much so that her foster dad calls her 'the greeter doggy.' And she loves to snuggle in her own bed and will happily sleep there through the night. All that being said, there are still things that will restimulate Penny's fears and cause her to bite. For this reason, she should not be in a home with young children, who would not be sophisticated enough to recognize her signs of discomfort. For example, she only wants to be touched on her terms and will attempt to defend herself if someone towers over her or touches her from behind. She usually will give a snarl in warning, but if she is awakened by touching, she will startle and bite. Even now, the only time she will let her foster mom pick her up is at the vet's office. Her interactions with other dogs have been mixed. Her ideal family would consist of one or two adults with no children or other pets--someone calm and low-key, who is home most of the time. Penny can be a challenge, but she is living proof that patience and love can heal old wounds. When she approaches you to ask for a brief, gentle scratch and wags her tail ever so slightly, the feeling that you get is just about indescribable. If you're someone who has experienced that feeling before and who can nurture and appreciate small steps of progress based on growing trust, then yours is probably the home Penny has yearned for all along. See more photos of Penny in her online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/penny. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Penny, 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.

|Rescue Me ID: 16-06-04-00325Nico (male)|
Nico is a 8 months old Rat terrier/ small hound mix puppy, weighs 12 lbs. He is cute as a button. He and 20 others were seized at a hoarding place. We are looking for an experienced dog person who is patient enough to let him settle in. We are also strictly looking for a home where he has another dog friend as he is very depending on a dog to find his comfort zone. Low traffic home with no small children because he would get scared and hide. He is not that type of dog you can take on a leash and walk around the block. Patience and lots of TLC is needed. So far he bonded only with his foster mom and snuggles with her but from any stranger he will hide. Once he is comfortable and settled in, he is an absolute snuggle big and the perfect companion for a rainy day on the couch. His adoption fee is $ 250 which includes all his vaccines, deworming, heartworm test, neuter and micro chip. DO NOT SUBMIT AN APPLICATION ONLINE!!!! Please send us an e mail to receive an application. We are operating on appointments with pre approved adopters only! (Less)

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.
