Animal ID: 1775Carlee (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Carlee is a lively toy-size Rat Terrier, who came to rescue when her owners lost their home. She is approximately 6 to 8 years old and weighs just 9 lbs. What Carlee lacks in stature, she makes up for in her love for humans, especially women, with whom she is most at ease. She wants to be with you at all times, following you around the house or nestled in your lap. She is fine with her canine foster siblings but much prefers humans to other dogs. Carlee is learning basic commands and seems to be reliably house trained. (She had a few accidents when she first arrived in foster care.) She barks only occasionally and only to get your attention. ... (Read More)Carlee recently had some extensive dental work done and wants you to know that she will need regular dental cleanings to maintain her good health and ever-so-sweet breath. Because of her tiny size, she would do best in a home without small children. This pint-size pup is now ready for her forever home. You can see more pictures of Carlee at http://ImageEvent.com/newrattitude/carlee . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Charlee, 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: 1749Dakota (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Dakota is a friendly, calm, and well-behaved fellow, who landed in a shelter when his former owner got ill. Now in foster care, he enjoys the freedom of napping on the sofa, napping on the deck in the sunshine, or peacefully strolling in the garden. He walks well on leash and does enjoy going on short walks as long as the weather is cool, but at about 8 years old, he is not an energetic fellow and is perfectly content with just a tour around the block. He also rides great in the car. Dakota has liked all of the similar-sized dogs he has met, and on a recent visit to PetSmart, he just watched the playful cats with some calm curiosity before ... (Read More)walking on to investigate more interesting things. He can get agitated when first meeting larger dogs, but it took him only a short time to get used to one who visited as a house guest. Dakota meets new people with politeness and mild initial interest, but once he gets to know you, he proves himself to be a sweet cuddler who cannot decide which he loves more: belly rubs or butt 'skritches'. He makes a great watch dog, barking when there's a knock on the door or the doorbell rings to alert you and to let the visitor know that the house is well guarded. As soon as he sees you are OK with the newcomer, he will wag politely and then go back to whatever he had been doing. Dakota has great house manners, is reliably house trained, and knows how to use a doggie door. He weighs just under 25 lbs. Overall he is a mellow fellow who is an easy-to-care-for and devoted companion. Please check out more photos of this distinguished gentleman in his album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/dakota . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Dakota, 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: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Milly! Milly is a 30 pound rat terrier / red bone coonhound. She is full of love, affection, and energy. She would do well in an active home with a child old enough to play and run with her. She is very smart and motivated to learn. She is already house trained and does fairly well on a leash. She needs a large yard or sufficient exercise to make her happiest. This girl is the most brilliant red ever and is a pleasure just to look at. To apply to adopt, go to brantleyanimalrescuecoalition.weebly.com and fill out an adoption application.

Animal ID: 1352BlueBelle (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Beautiful BlueBelle is a unique lady looking for a very special family. She was born into puppy mill conditions and lived almost four years birthing puppies in a deprived environment. She is around 5 years old and a small 12 lbs. BlueBelle was classified as semiferal and overcame many challenges to learn to live in a home and have minimal interactions with humans. She is still learning and needs a family who understands how best to gently, patiently help her adapt. BlueBelle has lived peacefully with a cat and lives with family dogs and a changing roster of foster dogs. She can be adamant about keeping her space to herself around other dogs ... (Read More)and can also snuggle or act playful with those same dogs when she's in the mood. She will need at least one dog companion to help her feel at home and show her the doggie routine. She is house trained in her current environment. She would appreciate an adult-only home that tends to be calm and can let her safely grow at her own pace. To give you an idea of her pace, it took 18 months for BlueBelle to ask to be petted. She still has many fears and a phobia of thunder. She does not yet walk on leash. Her exercise currently consists of walking a large yard, jumping and racing around the house in anticipation of a meal, and some rehab exercises. BlueBelle is finishing rehabilitation for a healed back issue and for luxating patellae ('dislocating knees,' common in small dogs). If you are looking for a sweet dog to love and nurture while carefully helping to widen her world, BlueBelle is your girl.

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 

    Everyone calls me 'tiny' and 'cute,' and that's fine because I am certainly cute. But don't be fooled by my short stature and weight of just 8.5 lbs. Big personalities come in small packages. Firecrackers are tiny, you know what I'm saying? I'm Perrito, a Teddy Roosevelt, or Type B, Rat Terrier. At a spry 9 years old, I am one tough boy. I like to play a rousing game of ball, take a running slide into the carpet shoulder first for a good roll. If I get knocked down, I get right back up, shake it off, and move forward. I'm usually following my person closely in case something exciting happens. Neighborhood walks are the best, and I take them ... (Read More)terrier style--forward, double time, and with good leash manners! I'm a dutiful recycler and pick up plastic bottles along the way. (See me in action here: http://www.imageevent.com/newrattitude/perrito .) Positive reinforcement training is my favorite because it means food! Praise! Back rubs! I also like to get a laugh by wagging my short, crooked tail. Yes, I use my adorableness to my advantage. I like all kinds of adult people, but I need to know you before I let you touch me. My sensitivity to touch and unpredictable movement is why I'm not a good match for preteen kids. Getting along with dogs is something I've learned, but sometimes I forget when food is involved. Sometimes I can get into a single-minded behavior groove and need help to get out, so I'm on an inexpensive medication that helps me think better, and I've had training to give me other things to do besides get stuck in compulsions. I also take some supplements with my special food to keep my chronic pancreatitis in check, and I'm doing great on them. I'm house trained if I'm reminded to go outside, and I'm paper trained. I sleep in a crate at night and can be left in a safe area when I'm alone in the house. It's possible for me to be adopted far away from my foster home, but if you're within easy driving distance of Athens, Georgia, you can meet my adorable furry self and also get all kinds of help with my transition. It's really important to me that my next home is finally a true forever home with people to call my very own. Yep, even a tough fella like me has a heart hankering for love. ========================================================================================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.

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.
