Animal ID: 1539Abigail (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Abigail is a sweet 5-year-old Jack Russell Terrier who was impersonating a Rat Terrier at the shelter. Quite likely the shelter workers thought she wasn't hyper enough for a Jack Russell so called in Rat Terrier rescue. With her inquisitiveness and playfulness, she would be a great match for an active family. She absolutely adores humans and considers everyone her friend. She welcomes visitors to her home with a wagging tail and a happy dance. She likes to fetch (and return) a thrown ball, chew on squeaky toys, and 'destuff' stuffed toys. Abigail weighs about 14 lbs. and will jump up into your lap and roll over for tummy rubs. Ready for a ... (Read More)walk or a ride in the car? She is right there beside you, eager to go along for the fun. On leash she does best with a harness (she does tend to pull in her excitement). In the car she will go right into her travel crate and ride along quietly. In fact, she is not a very 'barky' dog. Abigail gets along very congenially with most other dogs after being properly introduced to them. Since she can be a bit bossy, and at times try to do a little resource guarding, she would do best with a low-key, easy-going dog (or two) who won't mind living with a diva, or she would do fine as an only dog. She lived with cats for a short period and was a little too interested in them but not threatening. Abigail has mastered the doggie door and does great with her house training when she has regular outdoor access. On cold or rainy days, though, she needs to be escorted out to make sure she takes care of business because this princess is a warm weather gal. Abigail is crate trained and at night will sleep quietly either in her crate or on a doggie bed, as you wish. To see more photos of Abigail and learn more about her, please visit her online album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/abigail . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Abigail, 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: 15-06-23-00441Bella (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 

    Meet Bella! She is about 10-12 months old and is about 15 pound dashchund / rat terrier mix. She came into rescue with a lot of fear and timidness, but she has all but overcome her problems. She has gained confidence and enjoys other pets and is good with children. We are not sure if she would chase a cat or not. She is still a little shy and will bark at a stranger, but most good dogs will. She is also house trained and sleeps in her crate at night. This little sweet heart needs a home where she can continue to gain self confidence and receive all the love possible. If you would like to adopt Bella, please go to ...

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

    There are three dogs that need homes. All three are in photo. Shorty is the oldest ( the dad), Alpha is the older brother, and Hercules is the baby brother. It would be a miracle to keep all together, but if they have to be separated then, I just want to find a loving home for each.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Dodger is a 6-8 pound, appr. 7-8 month old rat terrier / dachshund mix. He got busted for chasing chickens and had his life threatened, so rescue stepped in and interceded for this little, chicken loving pup. And he does like chickens...chicken salad, fried chicken, and grilled chicken. In the house, he is a great, little lap doggie. Full of curiosity and affection. He has learned where the dog door is on day one, so I suspect house training won't be hard. If you are interested in this spry little bundle of joy, you can apply for him at brantleyanimalrescuecoalition.weebly.com . The foster mom will contact you, answer any questions, ...

Animal ID: 1598Gaia (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Gaia is a special little 8 year old with special needs. She was surrendered with limited medical information, but we do know that she had surgery in 2008 to repair a ruptured disc, and experienced partial paralysis in her back legs, which she has lived with ever since. However, since entering foster care, Gaia has been in an intensive therapy program to strengthen her atrophied legs, and this has significantly improved her mobility. She can now walk and even run, but not for much distance. Gaia does a relatively good job of going potty outside, but wears a diaper at night in case of overflow. She gets along well with the other dogs and the ... (Read More)kitties in the household, and plays often. She has spunk and a can-do attitude, and tries sooooooo hard to do everything the other guys do. She is an all-around tough and determined little girl who is also affectionate and shows her appreciation with love and kisses. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Gaia, 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: 15-05-19-00116Lily Belle (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hi, humans. I'm Lily Belle and I'm probably one of the best-kept secrets at rescue. In fact, a lot of the volunteers don't even know about me. I arrived last year with several other dogs who were dumped outside the kill shelter by a backyard breeder. The other dogs were fairly socialized or adjusted to strange humans; I was not. I was terrified of everyone and hid in my doghouse every time anyone tried to come near me. I needed to be treated for heartworms, though, so I was lucky enough to land a place at the 'senior/foster center' with Floyd and the others while I adjusted and became more confident. It's taken me awhile to get used to ... (Read More)everything - and I mean everything, from walking on a leash to learning how to be a 'normal' dog. We were never given that opportunity at our puppy mill. I think I may be ready to meet the right person now, though. If you are willing to be patient and love me, I may/will be doing the same with you. We will just need to meet and see. Although I'm shy, I'm also very sweet, quiet and playful once you get to know me. My foster family says I'm no problem at all. I'm about 2 years old, around 13 lbs., crate-trained, housebroken, and get along with other dogs! Not all of those dogs at rescue can say that! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-04-14-00678Roscoe (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Meet Shadow! He is part of a duo with our rescue. In the inner circles of Street Paws, we really can't say one name with out the other. Roscoe and Shadow are two handsome fellas who have been side kicks for most of their lives. Roscoe and Shadow were raised together since they were puppies. They were taken to the vet regularly and always received any medical attention they needed. Their owner brought them into the vet for vaccines and said he would be back to pick them up and then never returned. Attempts to contact him have been ignored. So now these 2 were lost and confused living at the vet's office. Street Paws was contacted to help ... (Read More)these two guys out! Currently they are living in outdoor kennels, far from their familiar indoor comfort zone. Shadow is a wonderful pup who is very attentive and loyal. He just needs someone to bring out the best in him. With time we have come to know the ins and outs of these two and both are happy and love attention. Here is the break down of each: Roscoe: An Australian Kelpie/Rat Terrier mix - He loves to ride in the car. - Loves to have his belly rubbed. - Great personallity, very friendly and social. - Everyone who meets him falls in love. - Housebroken and past the chewing stage. - Crate trained. Shadow: Chow Chow / Newfoundland Mix - He loves to ride in the car. - Likes to hug. - Loves to be loved on. - Housebroken and past the chewing stage. - Crate trained. - Thinks cats are for chasing, so no cats will be in his forever home. - He is great with Roscoe except he dominates him for food by pushing him out of the way so they must be fed separately. Although those of us here at Street Paws would like to keep these two together, since they are bonded, we are willing to consider separate homes if the right ones come along. Also, even if you can't make a permanent commitment to these two friends, fostering them would be a great way to help them transition into their new home. Street Paws took them under their wing without a foster commitment and have been actively trying to find one for them. To apply to adopt this pet please fill out a Preliminary Adoption Application at http://streetpaws.org/adoption-application/. This application does not commit you to an adoption. It is used to screen those interested to make sure the home is a good match for the pet. We verify vet history on current/previous pets to ensure pets have been spayed/neutered and vaccinated annually. Our adoption fee is $250 for all of our dogs. Roscoe and Shadow have a sponsor willing to pay a portion of their adoption fee so they can be adopted into a home together. To adopt both of them the adoption fee is $250. They have been given age-appropriate vaccinations, are spayed/neutered, dewormed, had Capstar and/or Frontline applied, heartworm tested and treated if necessary, and micro-chipped (required registration is an additional fee of $10.99) (Less)

This perpetually happy fellow is always wagging his tail and has a cute little prance when going for walks, which he enjoys immensely. He is reliably house trained and crate trained, and he has very good house manners. He loves to play with other dogs both big and small and also enjoys playing on his own with his toys.

Animal ID: 1437Ellie (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Miss Ellie! She's a senior with a fresh outlook on life. She knows that in order to stay young, you need to keep working on yourself, and that's something Ellie has been doing with determination since coming to New Rattitude. First, she got dental surgery to relieve her mouth of some misshapen, downright painful teeth. Then she got to work eating a healthful diet to put on a few pounds to reach her current weight of 12 1/2 lbs., just right for a lady of 8 1/2 years. Now Ellie is busy learning to be playful and helpful around the home. She has learned to love playing with her ball, even creating her own game of 'Ball Yoga,' giving the ... (Read More)ball a Zen-like stare while rolling it gently around on her bed. She also enjoys her puzzles, mastering five different ones that utilize both her nose and her paws in her quest to locate treats, and she has learned the game of search, in which she seeks out the treats that are hidden in bowls inside boxes. And you couldn't ask for a more helpful dog. Ellie helps out by being with her people, no matter what they are doing. She helps her foster dad with the blueberry picking by picking up and eating every blueberry he drops on the floor. It's an important job, she says. You wouldn't want people squishing those things. In addition to being playful and having a purpose, Ellie knows that as one grows older, it's important to keep up one's connections with the world, and she very much enjoys going on outings to the convenience store, even if they do have to be restricted to brief trips in the evening to avoid the hot summer sun. She is a bit uncertain about getting all 'dressed up' in a harness to go out, but she promises to have that mastered in no time. Ellie is house trained and crate trained and knows how to use a doggy door, though she really appreciates it if you go outside with her. Also, she has never been destructive when left loose in the house. Now, Ellie wants you to know that she does have her persnickety side. She doesn't like kids and should be in an adults-only home. She also doesn't care for certain dogs (any introductions would have to be made slowly) and thinks that cats and pocket pets, like gerbils and such, are vermin to be chased away (by her). She also believes that age has its privileges and can be a bit headstrong sometimes about wanting to go to bed before her people do. But Ellie hopes that you won't hold these quirks against her. After all, she has been working so hard, checking off each self-improvement goal as she reaches it. Next on her list--please don't call it a 'bucket list'--is finding a terrier-savvy person to call her own. If you are home most of the time and are willing to open your heart to a girl with such love of life and much love to give, you are just what Ellie is searching for. You can see more pictures and video of Ellie at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/elliehamptonga . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Ellie, 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 

    Handsome Barnabus wants nothing more than to find his forever home--something that has happened for all of his siblings who also came into rescue but has yet to happen to this 9-lb. 3-year-old. And he can't figure out why! After all, he has worked so hard to be the best dog that he can be and to overcome fears that were probably the result of a very hard former life. He stands on his foster parents' laps and gives gentle kisses and is making progress at allowing himself to be picked up. When he is praised, his short tail flutters with joy! Although he can be wary at first with strangers, he does warm up when he sees that his family is OK ... (Read More)with the guests. He has been good around children ages 3-9 who have visited, but he needs to be monitored around the littlest ones. He gives them kisses and enjoys their company much of the time but gives a growl when he has had enough. Except for reluctance to share his toys, Barnabus gets along well with other dogs and looks to the other dogs in the household to learn his routines, so it would be fine if his adoptive family had another dog (as long as it is not a rowdy puppy). He hasn't been around cats and can't promise that he wouldn't chase them since he does have a healthy prey drive. He has even earned the nickname 'Hunter Barnes' for his ability to capture squirrels and snatch pesky insects right out of the air. Barney is crate trained, and while crated during the day when his foster parents are at work, he does not go potty in his crate. He is house trained for the most part and quietly announces his need by standing near the door to be let out but needs extra encouragement to venture into inclement weather. One fear he has not overcome is his fear of being leashed, so he requires a fenced yard, but he has a fairly low energy level and much of the time is content to curl up on the couch next to you or to play gently, wiggle-waggling his tail as fast as he can. Barney wants a patient, loving family--one that won't mind taking the time he needs to warm up and fall in love. The feeling will certainly be mutual when he looks up at you with adoring eyes and his cute little bottom teeth start to show. Wouldn't you want that irresistible face staring back at you? Barney invites you to take a peek at more of his photos at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/barnabus. =======================================================================================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.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    ALABAMA is an older male who loves to go for a walk. He suffers from the aches and pains that come with age and would probably do well with someone who is older and understands those things. He loves a nice leash walk and might be a candidate for a little pain medication for his senior years but a little pampering would go a long way toward making him happy.

    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.

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.
