Very bright and obeys basic commands. Very vocal and will bark at animals on the TV, but will stop on command. Fenced yard ... (Read More)required. Loves bellyrubs, apples/carrots/popcorn and fetching/tugging with her little frisbee. We are empty nesters traveling constantly...not fair to keep her penned inside this much:( (Less)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Adriana Smith is an adorable little girl is a doll baby! Upon arriving at the shelter, Adriana would not allow anyone to get close to her, let alone leash walk her. Now Adriana is beginning to like her regular walks and absolutely loves being held! She also really enjoys her afternoon brushings and is known to roll over so that her belly can be adequately rubbed! She would make the perfect addition to a quieter home, as she still does get a little scared in new situations. If you are looking for a sweet, loveable, lap dog, this is definitely your girl!

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-21-00114Milo (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Milo is very affectionate and craves attention. He is housetrained and prefers to be indoors. He becomes anxious when left alone. He may do well with some other dogs, but fights with the female dog in our household so must find a new home. He is not used to small children and may nip if they become rowdy but will do fine with older children. He doesn't require a lot of outdoor activity but is an excellent ratter and will quickly catch small rodents. His ideal situation would be a small household in which he is the only dog and can interact with people during the day with occasional playtime outside.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    JuJu is a little ten to twelve pound chihuahua / rat terrier mix. She was abandoned at a rural daycare and stayed with a group of little children for two weeks until rescue could take her. The children called her 'Russell', but she is a girl, so we changed it to JuJu. It was adorable watching the children kiss her bye and give her head pats. JuJu is a quiet little girl who seems to already be house trained as she waits to go outside to do her business. She is probably about a year old, but has a mild case of heart worms. She is on medication for the slow kill and can take this medication to finish the treatment at her adoptive home. ...

Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Bandit is a rat terrier mix that is approximately 8 years old. Loving and very sweet disposition, can be a little possessive of his human (my son) but only around other animals. He loves people, every sex, every age...he just doesn't want his 'boy' to have any other dogs. We have 4 other dogs and Bandit fights with the only other male dog. The last fight was bad and bandits tail was broken. He has to be separated from the other male for his own safety. He needs someone who will love him and for him to love back.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament

    Mocha is a delightful Patterdale Terrier/Beagle mix (at best guess! :-). Such a sweet girl! She was rescued from a roadside and is being fostered until she finds her forever home. Mocha gets along well with other dogs; she would also be fine as the 'only'. She loves human companionship and would enjoy being with someone as much as possible. She loves to play. Mocha is easy to correct and appears very trainable. Very, very sweet girl - playful and loves children.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

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

    This sweet adorable girl needs a new forever home. We are moving to a location that does not allow pets. She is 6 years old, and lived with us for the past 5 years. She is very playful, but is happiest when she is snuggled up on the couch next to her family. She enjoys walk, and is a good guard dog but not a constant barker. She came from a shelter when she was a puppy. We have worked with her and she has truly blossomed, she is shy at first but quick to warm up. She follows basic commands and can be walked off leash. She has been well cared for and deserves a home that can provide her with love.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    CLICK LINK FOR MORE PICTURES! https://flic.kr/s/aHsjZk4M4x Stella is looking for her forever home. She came to us as a puppy at 8 weeks old almost completely self- potty trained. She is EXTREMELY intelligent but can be stubborn at times. Stella loves attention and during the day stays outside on a running line in the company of another dog (a jack Russell terrier) and they play very well together. At night time Stella come inside and stays in her crate until the next morning. We have never had an issue with her using the bathroom in the house. Whenever she needs to go out she will whimper to let you know, though we do not typically take ... (Read More)her out in the middle of the night. She is mostly black with white markings on her chest and feet; has brown eyes. She is a sweet baby and would do well in a family where she would get plenty of exercise and have room to roam. She would be an excellent farm dog. She is not in immediate danger of being sent to a shelter, however, we are only able to care for her for a short while longer. Please, if you are interested, I would be happy to answer any further questions you have regarding this sweet puppy. We prefer that she either be in a fenced in yard, or go to a home way out in the country where she can roam freely. She would not do well in a chain link kennel unless it was just for the night time. Whoever receives this baby will absolutely fall in love with her. Guaranteed. (Less)

Animal ID: 1423Hermes (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Senior

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

    Sexy canine senior citizen seeks young-at-heart companion for lifetime commitment. Enjoys the outdoors, going for walks, watching the sun set and relaxing on the beach, chasing squirrels, and rolling in gross stinky stuff. At 13 he thought his last relationship was forever, but things change and Hermes finds himself single again. Slim and trim at 14 pounds, he's handsome, healthy, active, and has a great personality. As a mature gentleman, he has mastered many of life's challenges. He is house trained and crate trained, and he won't embarrass you in front of your friends by digging or chewing anything he shouldn't. He loves snuggling, belly ... (Read More)rubs, and sleeping next to the one he loves. He's also a great kisser! Hermes hasn't been around cats or children, so we don't know how he would do with them. Hermes is a gentleman with other dogs, but he is highly protective of his food, so a separate dining area or dining in his crate is a must. He loves traveling by car and going for walks. Hermes has special dance moves that he performs for those whom he loves dearly, smiling broadly at their arrival and performing perfect pirouettes. Hermes will warm your heart, your lap, and your life with the special love only a senior can bestow. You can see more photos and learn more about Hermes at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/hermes . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Hermes, 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: 1428Laurel (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Laurel is a gentle, laid-back gal who is very easy to care for, as she has good house manners, including reliable house training, and is pretty independent. She likes to quietly hang out near you but not right underfoot and she isn't demanding for attention. She meets new people very well, including children, and she likes to be petted. Laurel is about 5-6 years old and weighs 12 lbs. She is very food motivated and her patient, pleading eyes can be quite persuasive! Plus she will sometimes stand up on her back legs and hold there looking at you hopefully like an adorable meerkat. Laurel has two other cute mannerisms. One is that she will ... (Read More)sing along with you if you pick a song that is good for howling. And the other is that she watches other dogs on TV and may even try to chase the TV dog if it runs! In her foster home Laurel mostly does fine with the other dogs, either ignoring them or playing with them, depending on the other dog's personality. She can be a little bossy, though, especially at dinner time, so she would prefer an easy-going companion or she would also do fine as an only dog. Laurel has learned to sit on command and responds well to a calm 'no.' When the leash comes out, her tail starts wagging and she is eager to go for a walk or a ride in the car. She walks pretty well on leash but will initially pull a bit in her eagerness. She will chase squirrels in the yard and wants to also chase the cats she spies on her walks. Please visit Laurel's on-line album to see more photos of her: 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.

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Loyal dog, loves to be with his people. He was traumatized by a boxer, so as long as there are no other dogs around (especially big dogs), he is great. He enjoys long walks and lying on the couch next to his person. Our family situation has changed dramatically, otherwise we would be keeping him--very tough decision for us.

Rat Terrier    Age: Puppy

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

    Stacey Keach is an 8 month old Rat Terrier. He might have a touch of Jack Russell, but he is mainly a rattie. He is a little 10 pound fellow with a bad past. He was taken to a high kill shelter after he had eaten bones and was impacted with them. Rescue took him to the vet and this was taken care of, but he is still not 100% yet. He should be completely healed soon. He is very friendly but easy to scare. He has had a terribly history full of pain and hunger, so he will need someone willing to offer a lot of TLC to get this baby back to where he needs to be with his confidence and feeling secure. He is a smart little fellow, so it ... (Read More)should not take long. Because of all this, he is not a good candidate for a home with small children right now. This little guy is a diamond in the rough just waiting on that special person to allow him to blossom. If you are interested in adopting Stacey, please go to brantleyanimalrescuecoalition.weebly.com and fill out an adoption application and the foster parent will contact you in a timely manner.

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Spot is a 5-lb., 3-year old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix who is a bundle of joy. He loves to sit in your lap and soak up attention. He gets along great with other dogs, big and small. He is curious about the cat who lives in his foster home and wants to play with him inside, but wants to chase him outside. Spot is house trained and will 'do his business' as soon as you let him out. He sleeps through the night and loves a comfy dog bed, although he loves to cuddle with his person in the big bed when allowed. He does bark at strangers when he first meets them, but will stop when asked. He is learning to walk on a leash. Besides being ...

Animal ID: 1370Barnabus (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Barnabus, a 7.5-lb., 2-1/2-year-old fellow, has worked hard to overcome a tough start in life--one which included being removed with 13 other dogs from the home of a hoarder and then being housed outside in the cold at a shelter. With New Rattitude, Barnabus has successfully completed treatment for heart worm, and with patient, gentle love from his foster family, has transformed himself from terrified to terrific! Now, having learned to give and receive affection from those he trusts, he loves to have his face scratched and his head patted. He will jump in his foster parents' laps and give gentle kisses. He is making progress at allowing ... (Read More)himself to be picked up, and when he is praised, his short tail will just flutter with joy! He is still a 'slow-go' at first with strangers but does warm up when he sees that his family is OK with the guests. He has been good around children ages 3-9 who have visited, and he allows them to pet him, giving a little growl or moving away when he has had enough. However, because he can be an 'ankle-biter'--albeit a gentle one--he might frighten some children. Except for being reluctant to share his favorite toys, Barnabus gets along well with other dogs and looks to the other dogs in the household to learn his new routines, so it would be fine if his adoptive family had another dog. And while he hasn't been around cats, he doesn't seem to be strongly prey driven, so he would probably get along with them. Barney is crate trained, and while crated during the day when his foster parents are at work, he does not 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. However, not being a fan of inclement weather, Barney will sometimes choose indoor potties just to avoid going out in the rain. Probably as a result of his early experiences with animal control, he has remained steadfastly fearful of leashes and the vet's office and is working with a professional trainer to overcome his fears. With his fairly low energy level, Barnabus is content to curl up on the couch or in his person's lap or to play gently on the couch, wiggle-waggling his tail! In a home with that special someone who has lots of love and patience, this youngster will continue to progress and gain confidence. Check out some pictures of Barney during training 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.

    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.

    Howdy, big peoples! I'm Damon and I'm a little angel. ;) I was rescued from an out-of-state puppy mill bust in February. My parents unfortunately knew the horrors, but I was lucky enough to have escaped them. With that said, the overbreeding and inbreeding conditions have left me with a neurological condition. My little brain doesn't always communicate with my back legs, so sometimes I appear stiff and/or can even tumble while I play. I don't really care. I'm still made of rubber at this age and it doesn't affect me at all, but we thought you should know. I won't be an agility king and I may develop arthritis later in life, but that's about ...

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

    Willy is one special guy! He is 7 years old and weighs approximately 15 lbs. Sweet Willy ended up at the shelter because he lost his people. He was so very scared there. He really is a mild mannered little gentleman who is reliably house trained. He is not a high energy boy and is content to just hang out with his person. Willy does have some issues that are somewhat of a puzzle, but even though we don't know what happened in his past to cause the issues, they are easily dealt with. For example, he has an issue with turning left. He doesn't like the leash and he is sensitive to touch if you approach him as a surprise. And his previous owners ... (Read More)did not teach him any commands. But Willy is such a love bug none the less. He is quite shy at first with other dogs, but once he gets to know them he likes them, and if they want to play, count him in! He likes to announce any guests to the house and he uses his bark to communicate. Willy would be great with a family with other pets - cats or dogs. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body. He is very devoted to his person and would make a perfect pet for a mature single or couple in a quiet home.

Animal ID: 0485Rosa (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Male Dogs Only 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Pretty Rosa has been in foster care for some time, perhaps because people aren't aware of how well blind dogs can take care of themselves. Rosa needs a little guidance, but she's quite independent and capable, too. Around 6 years old and about 12 lbs., she has excellent house manners. She is house trained, crate trained, healthy, and blind in her remaining eye. This low-energy lap princess loves affection and gives lots of fuzzy kisses if you want them. She is playful (http://youtu.be/qXE1dUhEVxI) and likes to explore new environments at her own pace. (See her navigating a new nature trail here: http://youtu.be/1yaqVusa0WA .) While shy at ... (Read More)first, Rosa warms up to men, women, calm children, and male dogs. She tries to chase cats, probably because the bratty cat in her foster home thinks it's hilarious fun to tease blind dogs. Rosa is okay with laid-back female dogs with soft temperaments, but she does not get along with assertive female dogs. She enjoys getting her dinner out of food puzzles (http://youtu.be/BSvCq_TNl18) and loves scent-work games. Her scenting superpower has earned her the apt nickname of 'The Nose.' The Nose always knows! Rosa's other superpower is grounding humans. Along with her tolerance for gentle hugs, she has an amazing ability to help calm distressed strangers and those with health issues. Her presence is a gift.
