Animal ID: 1522Ceiba (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    Watching you carefully with his beautiful attentive eyes, Ceiba is trying to determine whether you're going to be one of those people who grabs at him and hurts him or if you can be trusted and are worthy of his affection and trust. Initially he'll be tentative and try to keep out of your reach; once he decides you are OK, he will gladly interact with you, wagging his tail happily. And once he has fully accepted you, which might take a couple of days, he will be glad to shower you with affection and snuggles and be your most devoted companion. Ceiba (pronounced SEE-bah) weighs a healthy 15 lbs. and is about a year old. It was apparently a ... (Read More)tough first year for him, as he came to foster care with a BB embedded in his chest and with no knowledge of toys, leash walking, or obedience commands. But this young fellow really picks up on things quickly, and he has made great progress in just a short time. After a few accidents in the first couple of days in foster care, his house training has been great, and he has learned how to use the doggie door. He has started responding when called or when told 'uh-uh.' As a youngster, he still has the urge to chew on things but is now mostly confining himself to antlers or chew toys that he is offered. In fact, he has earned the right to stay uncrated when his foster family has to leave him alone for a few hours. Ceiba is the most delightfully affectionate fellow and he wants to give kisses, play, and interact with people and with the other dogs. He is submissive to the older dogs in the home and doesn't take offense if they snap at him when they want to be left alone. He has a very exuberant spirit and will bound across the yard with the other dogs with a happy, springy gait. Sometimes he will spring around the yard just for the heck of it, and it is terribly cute to watch. Ceiba is working on accepting a leash, and once he is able to start going on more outings, his confidence will surely increase rapidly and that will just add to his awesomeness. Check out more photos and video of this adorable fellow at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/ceiba . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Ceiba, 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: 14-12-13-00422Rathbone T. Rascal (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Rathbone is handsome, sly, headstrong, and afraid of strangers at store adoptions, so he barks like he's a mastiff when encountering new people. The truth is he just wants to make sure that no one too rough gets ahold of him; he actually enjoys cuddling and long scratching once he trusts you, and he just LOVES a bit of roughhousing, too. He grew up w/2 ladies but utterly adores his foster dad as well; no experience w/children that we know of. Fantastic home alarm system! While he once played w/a pomeranian in his old home, he seems very choosy about his canine companions and often prefers mutual ignoring over interaction. Does seem ... (Read More)compatible w/maternal-type big, gentle dogs. Does not bother cats at all. Not a big fan of toys so far, he'll need further coaxing out of his shell and about learning to enjoy himself. Crate-trained and housebroken per last owners. (Less)

    Porche is sweet dainty little girl who is desperately seeking her furever home! She wants to be spoiled and loved and do the same for her humans!

Rescue Me ID: 14-12-08-00217MAX (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Fearful/Anxious 

    My mother-in-law is not able to care for him anymore and I'm trying to find him a forever home. His name is Max and he is a four year old Rat Terrier. He is a bit skittish so I wouldn't recommend him to anyone with small children. He's really sweet and would make an awesome hunting companion.

Animal ID: 1508Little Man (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    Little Man is a TON of fun in a little 10-lb. package! This 1-1/2 year old fellow loves other dogs and loves to play, and it's very entertaining to watch his playful antics. He's an awesome critter chaser and enjoys spending time exploring his backyard and keeping the squirrels and chipmunks on the run. While he has a moderately high level of energy, he's not hyper. He's an affectionate pup who likes hopping up into your lap for pets and giving kisses. Little Man is crate trained and will retreat to his crate on his own for a nap or just some quiet play time. He sleeps all night in his crate without a peep. Then in the morning he bounds out, ... (Read More)full of enthusiasm for the new day ahead. His house training is almost perfect so his new family will want to continue to reward his outdoor potties with treats and praise to help him become 100% reliable. Although he is somewhat fearful of new people, once he gets to know them, he's very loving. He appreciates being able to approach people on his own once he's feeling comfortable around them. Little Man hasn't been around small children, but he would probably be fine with them as long as they were respectful to him. He isn't very barky, but if he sees people or dogs walking by his house, he will give a little bark to let them know that he has seen them. He is easily quieted and comes quickly when called. To find out more about this terrific little guy, check out his photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/littleman. ========================================================================================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: 14-12-03-00321Lola (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Greeting and salutations everyone! My name is Lola... that's L O L A Lola like cherry cola! I am such a princess there is even a song written about me. But I only know the first few words. I am a little dainty chi, probably a mix but I am not sure. I somehow ended up in a high kill shelter with my kennel mate Ashlyn. When this awesome rescue saw her they just couldn't leave me behind. So I was rescued from that horrid place and came to live at my foster mom's. Everyone thinks Ashlyn is the lady, hrmph, she is a tom boy! I am the real lady around here. I have a pretty pink collar with pretty diamonds on it, I sleep next to mom's head at ... (Read More)night, and you will never catch me rough housing with BOYS... well... I do on occasion but only because mom says it is good for my adoption chances if I am at least a little social with them. I do love my foster dad and uncle though... they carry me around, like they should, and say sweet things to me. I love my foster home, I am treated like the princess I am here. I am very happy but I want my OWN home. Where I can rule the roost so to say. I am housebroken, don't mind the crate though I do encourage a privacy blanket, and I will tolerate a leash. I just don't get why they are necessary but mom has been working with me on leash manners. I suppose if one must walk on a leash, a pretty pink one isn't so bad. I am a great young adult dog with an absolutely ROYAL demeanor. I enjoy the occasional piece of plain hamburger from this simply marvelous place that mom sometimes takes me on our girl time outings. I have plenty of energy though I am wise beyond my years in choosing when to use it! A girl has to know her limits. I require a home with a soft bed, nyla bones, plenty of food and water. I do enjoy watching my foster dad play video games so that's okay if there is a man of the house. I emplore you to fill out an adoption application soon because royalty like me will not last long. I will be fully vetted upon adoption, including all shots and boosters, a feminie procedure (spay), and microchipped. Sincerely, Princess Lola ADOPTION FEE $250 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-12-03-00308Ashlyn (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    This is Ashlyn, a sweet girl who came to rescue from a high kill shelter in North Ga. On the way home she insisted on climbing into my lap and falling asleep, ever so gently and calmly with the sun shining down on her. Instinctively she knew she was finally safe, and now she is ready to find her forever family. Ashlyn does well with dogs of all sizes, kids, and is ambivalent about cats. When she picks her forever humans Ashlyn will be fully vetted, spayed and microchipped. She is a sweet girl who is mostly clam and relaxed. Like any dog at a young age she can get hyper, but with the proper amount of exercise and play time she does very well. ... (Read More)She loves to sleep and lounge in front of the fan, is very dainty when she eats, and is generally a little lady. She is the perfect lapdog companion and is looking for a lap to land it. She loves treats, watching tv, and sleeping. If you are looking for a small, laid back dog Ashlyn is the lady for you. Please fill out an adoption application today! Adoption Fee $250 (Less)

Animal ID: 0846Genesis (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Everyone who meets Genesis falls in love with her. Those big eyes shyly look away at first, but when she gets to know you, she will snuggle her little 10-lb. body into your arms, nuzzle your neck, and kiss your face. This petite cutie just turned 3 years old, and she's looking for a calm home where she can show her playfully goofy side as well as her sweetly affectionate, cuddle-bug side. Geni gets along with men, women, kids, dogs, and cats. She is house-trained, crate-trained, walks well on leash, knows basic household manners, and prefers a secure crate for car travel. Geni is sensitive to her person and likes to be with you, but she can ... (Read More)also entertain herself with her toys. She has an easily managed medical condition that results in 'vestibular events' when she is very stressed. A structural anomaly in her brain occasionally causes loss of balance, but an episode can be stopped before it becomes a full vestibular event. A stable environment is essential for Geni, as is a relatively peaceful yard. She doesn't have great depth perception and jumps face first into the couch as often as she jumps on to it, but that never bothers her! Geni is an amazing, lovable girl, and by example she has taught the people around her to 'relax when you're stressed and just laugh it off when you accidentally bounce off the furniture.' For more photos and info on this adorable and rascally girl, please see her page at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/genesis . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Genesis, 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: 14-09-23-00272Sparky the Fire Dog (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Howdy, folks! 'Sparky the Fire Dog' here. I was adopted from the kill shelter with my scruffy Jack Russell sister Roxy (who has already been adopted), then returned for a reason the people here don't know why. They just knew what that meant for me: I would be redlined and put down immediately. I was so sweet and gentle and wonderful and '| hey '| how could I not go on to touch everyone's hearts? Nope, I couldn't. I'm a very young (only about a year or two) boy who is very submissive. So submissive that I really didn't want to stand up for photos. I was much more comfortable being in Mama Donna's arms and/or rolling over for belly ... (Read More)scratches. I also like to dig. We're going to work on my insecurities and turn me into a confident, young man. If you're interested in doing so for or with us, we would love that, too! I'm neutered and have had all my shots, but my previous family didn't think heartworm testing was important. Yeah, don't get us started on that. I still need to be tested for that, but am ready to go otherwise. (Less)

Animal ID: 1428Laurel (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Laurel is a gentle, loyal dog who is devoted to her family. She is usually very calm and while she is polite (but somewhat aloof) with strangers she meets out on walks, she is an excellent watchdog in her own home -- always ready to alert her family to 'intruders' by barking at them until she is sure that they are acceptable. She appreciates pats and scratches, and will sometimes get on your lap for some one-on-one time, but she is not clingy and doesn't demand attention or seek tight cuddling. Laurel's activity level is moderate, with occasional bursts of playfulness but mostly she is just relaxed and regally alert. She has excellent house ... (Read More)manners and is perfectly house trained. She knows how to use a doggie door or will 'hold it' if one is not available. Laurel is about 5 years old and weighs 17 lbs. She rides well in the car and walks well on leash. She is very food motivated and her patient, pleading eyes can be quite persuasive! Laurel does fine with most other dogs, either ignoring them or playing with them, depending on the other dog's personality. She meets new dogs well but noisily if they are in 'her' house. She can be snarky, though, if her personal space is invaded by another dog, especially at dinner time, and she often tries to act as Play Police when the other dogs get rowdy, so she would do best with easy-going, tolerant canine companions. Laurel has learned to sit on command, responds well to a calm 'no,' and will come running in anticipation when you call out 'Treat!' She doesn't appear to be a fan of cats, as she will lunge toward those she spies on her walks. Please visit Laurel's on-line album to see more photos of this easy-to-care-for gal: http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/laurel . =======================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Laurel, 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.
