Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Meet Sweet Emmiline! She is a 15 pound Jack Russell / Rat Terrier. Or, more commonly called a ' Jack Rat'. Emmiline loves to prance around and will do tricks for a treat. She also loves to be close to her people and will cuddle in your lap in a heart beat. She is house trained with a doggie door. She loves other small dogs. She doesn't care if they are male or female, easy to get along with or testy, she is right at home with them. However, she hates big dogs. She will bow up and growl at them and chase them if she can get them to run. It is a very odd thing to watch since her foster mom's large dogs are very sweet. They look at ... (Read More)her like she is strange. Evidently, Emmiline had a bad experience with a large dog in her past. Emmiline enjoys a car ride and any activity with her person.

Animal ID: 1889Alto (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Who could resist a little helper and best buddy like Alto? Yes, that's what you'll get when you bring this gentle, handsome 2-year-old home. (To see just how handsome, take a peek at his online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/alto .) A Rat Terrier mix--with a touch of Basenji, perhaps?--who weighs 16 lbs., Alto may be a bit shy when he first meets you or other dogs, but allow him a little time to feel comfortable. Soon he'll be giving both humans and dogs copious kisses! In his foster home, he gets along with the children ages 12, 11, and 6, though it took him a while to warm up to the youngest, possibly because he's not a big ... (Read More)fan of noise. Alto prefers a quieter means of self-expression and rarely, if ever, barks. He can even get a little nervous around his more vociferous fur siblings. Alto will make his needs known with a whine, whether he's asking you to give him some attention or to let him go out to potty. (He is fully house-trained.) Basically he's a love bug who likes sitting in your lap, giving kisses, and playing gently. In other words, he's just about perfect! He walks nicely on a leash, but even when he's in his fenced yard, he'll be keeping close to you, as though he wishes he could be helping you with whatever task is at hand. And when he goes out to do his business, he hopes you'll return the favor by accompanying him outside. That's just how much he wants to be your friend. Alto's foster family says that more than anything they hope you will introduce this adorable boy to new experiences, help him enjoy the outdoors, offer him training (that helps all dogs grow in confidence), and then spend lots of cuddle time with him. Doesn't that sound like a pretty fair deal for such a faithful best friend? ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Alto, please go to New Rattitude's website at http://www.NewRattitude.

    Meet Ma'ling! And get ready for cuteness overload!!! These charming babies were born January 27, 2017 at their foster mom's home. Their mom, Pippy, a rat terrier, was picked up on a dirt road, obviously very pregnant. They will be small as mom only weighs between 15 and 20 pounds. We don't know what dad was but think he was pekingese by the look of the pups. To apply to adopt, go to brantleyanimalrescuecoalition.weebly.com

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.

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 

    You've been looking for a cute guy who will follow you anywhere and has matured into a fine domestic fellow. Well, here I am--all 8 good-looking lbs. of me, waiting for your call. My Teddy Roosevelt Terrier (Type B Rat Terrier) legs are pretty short, but I can still come running for you, for food, or for toys. I'm not interested in running for strangers at the door and barking like a fool because I have more manners than that. Over my 10 years on this earth, I've learned what's important in life: hanging out with you on short walks or just chilling, getting ear and back scratches (only from people I know), and playing a rousing game of ball ... (Read More)that ends with you distracting me with food just to get me to stop playing. And naps! Yes, I've become quite the connoisseur of naps. And I don't mean to brag, but I'm a tough guy who's in a pretty good state of health considering that my pancreas doesn't work so well. I just need a couple of common, inexpensive medications and enzymes in my raw food to keep me running around the yard and following you around the house. And speaking of yards, I'd appreciate being able to get to one quickly and easily when nature calls, but if you need to go out, just leave me with some pee pads in a tiled area and I'll oblige. I'm OK with dogs and cats, though sometimes I get cranky if they touch me or my stuff. (My foster mom told me to let you know that I'm best with calm, confident dogs who won't let me push them around.) I'm also okay with adult people, but not so much with kids, who might to touch me. Yeah, I've got this thing about being poked and prodded. I have bitten in the past, and I wear a basket muzzle to the vet, who's the ultimate poker and prodder. Everyone laughs at my quirks and says I'm a character and a half. As long as I get to sleep near you in a cushy crate, I'm fine with being called your doggy entertainment. In fact, call me anything you want; just don't call me late to dinner! If you can't get enough of my handsome profile, you may see more photos and videos at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/perrito . You can watch me collect bottles and do my part for the environment! ========================================================================================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.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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. Rat Terriers enjoy romping in a fenced yard, but because they are enthusiastic diggers, fences should be buried or reinforced around the base.
