Animal ID: 1737Chippewa (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Chippewa can see! That wasn't the case when he was at the shelter, suffering from ulcerated corneas, worsened by dry eyes and infection. The shelter staff was impressed by his positive attitude and friendliness, despite his obvious pain, discomfort, and blindness. Fortunately, New Rattitude was able to get him into foster care and promptly started on a regimen of medication to treat the infection, lubricate the eyes, and promote healing. When he was stabilized, he had eye surgery to remove the dead tissue covering his corneas. Chip can now see well enough to navigate around the house and yard with confidence, and he positively prances when ... (Read More)he goes on walks around the neighborhood. He is a spunky little Chihuahua-Rattie mix of about 8 years old, weighing just 8 lbs. He gets along super with other dogs and with cats, and he is sweet and gentle with people. His house manners are excellent, including perfect house training, and in fact about the only time he barks is when he needs to go outside to potty. He loves to sit in your lap and get pats, and at night he'll sleep with you quietly without hogging the bed. Chip does have a mild heart murmur, and because his eyes don't produce tears, he will need daily eye drops for the rest of his life. Fortunately, he is very good about having them put in, so this routine takes just 5 seconds a couple of times a day. Please visit his online photo album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/chippewa to see more pictures of this delightful and lovable little fellow. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Chippewa, 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

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

    Purty is as purty does and this makes this girl beautiful. She is a one year old, ten pound chihuahua / rat terrier mix. She comes complete with a quick mind to learn everything including the dog door on the first shot. She has the pep of a rattie, but an off switch so she can cuddle for hours. She is what you want in every dog for certain. She is a tad too small for little hands so she will need a home with children over 5. She knows how to get along with small and large dogs, but her foster doesn't have cats. However, most cats are larger than her. If this angel is your cup of tea, please apply. To apply to adopt, go to ... (Read More)brantleyanimalrescuecoalition.weebly.com and fill out an adoption application. (Less)

Animal ID: 1749Dakota (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Dakota is a friendly, calm, and well-behaved fellow. At 7 years old, it must have been a real blow to him when his former owner got ill and he landed in a shelter, where he languished in a cage for six months. During that time of inactivity, he packed on some weight, which he is now working to lose. He is currently down to about 28 lbs., with about 3 or 4 to go. Dakota walks well on leash and is trying to build up his stamina as he gets back into shape. He also rides great in the car. He 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. Dakota meets new people with politeness but only mild initial interest. Once he gets to know you, though, he proves himself to be a sweet cuddler, who cannot decide which he loves more: belly rubs or butt 'skritches.' He has great house manners and is reliably house trained. 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.

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
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: 1709Sioux (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Senior

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    How big is YOUR heart? Sweet Sioux has one of the biggest hearts we've ever seen...literally. It's so big that it fills her chest cavity and makes it hard for her to breathe deeply. Worse than that, it has a slow, irregular rhythm that doesn't do a good job of circulating blood throughout her little 15-lb. body. So 12-year-old Sioux probably does not have a very long life ahead of her. But she greets each day with a sweet, gentle, happy disposition and an enthusiastically wagging tail. Who would adopt a dog that likely has only a few months left to live? Someone who wants an affectionate and loyal companion...who appreciates a dog that is ... (Read More)remarkably easy to care for...and who has enough compassion to offer an older gal a comfortable, safe, and loving home in which to pass her remaining days. Sioux is house trained and has great house manners. She is quiet and calm and self sufficient. She walks well on leash but is quite slow due to her age, and because of her heart problems she does not require walks or any exercise beyond regular potty breaks. Her preference would be for a home without stairs where someone is home with her most of the time. Sioux gets along very sweetly with people and with most other dogs, but she finds a lot of commotion pretty overwhelming so would prefer a home as an only dog or perhaps with just one or two other low-key canine companions. Her vision and hearing aren't as sharp as they used to be, but she still knows when it's dinner time and she will do a little happy dance for you. Sioux's medical condition is not one that can benefit from treatment, so she does not have any ongoing veterinary needs or expenses. Because she most likely will cross the Rainbow Bridge sometime in 2016 (although that is not certain, of course), some compassionate donors have subsidized her adoption fee, hopefully making it easier for someone with an equally big heart to make the decision to give her a final loving home. Please check out the photos of Sioux in her online photo album at www.ImageEvent.com/beales/fosters/sioux . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Sioux, 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: 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.

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    We can't for the life of us figure out why this adorable sweetheart has not been adopted. Gaia is such inspiration! You could call her the 'Comeback Kid.' This amazing 14-lb. 8-year-old came to rescue with partially paralyzed legs, but today she lives a nearly normal life thanks to having had intensive physical therapy and acupuncture. She can walk, run, and even climb shallow stairs, and she LOVES to play with other dogs. A healthful diet that includes wet food, broth, and a cranberry supplement has enabled her to practically eliminate the urinary tract infections that used to bother her, as well as the need to wear a nighttime diaper. How ... (Read More)proud she will be to show you how she does just about everything other dogs do! So call her the Comeback Kid, the Can-do Canine. Call her anything; just call her, as in 'Come, Gaia, you're home!' and expect to be showered with inspiration (and snuggles 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.

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 

    Compact Perrito packs a lot of personality into his 8-lb. handsome body, which has the typical short-legged shape of a 'Type B' Rat Terrier, also known as a Teddy Roosevelt Terrier. His estimated age is 9, and while that's only middle-aged for this long-lived breed, it's definitely old enough for him to know that he's ready to settle down with a very special someone. Not one to shirk his domestic responsibilities, Perrito likes to keep busy and will follow you around the house to stay in the know about the goings-on and to 'help out' with chores. He is fabulous at finding lost objects and helping to 'sort' clothes for the laundry (Thank ... (Read More)goodness he is too short to assist at 'cleaning' the toilet bowl.) There's even a video showing him 'recycling,' as well as other clips and photos, in his online album at http://www.imageevent.com/newrattitude/perrito . In Perry's free time, he loves to take walks and knows how to do so politely on leash. He is house trained and paper trained, and he's a whiz at clicker training. He's using it to learn alternatives to some of his old ways of dealing with the world. One of those old ways was to become compulsive about securing toy-like objects and food when overly stressed. (Perrito's foster parent will be happy to help with staging his move to his new local forever home to help reduce the chance that the transition may trigger the old compulsive behaviors.) Another old way was to bite first and ask questions later, but now he is learning that humans can pay attention to less drastic forms of communication, such as a lip curl or a growl, so he doesn't have to go too far. When asked, Perrito presents the side of his neck for petting and enjoys a vigorous back massage, but he's still working on accepting other kinds of touch. Perrito needs his VSS (very special someone) to help him follow a simple diet to manage his chronic pancreatitis. He will do best in an all-adult home as he can guard food and toys and is frightened of quick movements. With help from his foster parent, he gets along with the six dogs in his foster home, but he would also be content being the only dog. Perrito has so far been indifferent to cats. If you are that special human who can give this boy some understanding, loving structure, and security, you'll earn the devotion of a loyal companion. ========================================================================================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.

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 

    Ellie is a special, quirky girl, who is longing for a special (though not necessarily quirky) human with whom to share her life. The quirks are as follows: She can be a little snappy and headstrong about when she wants to go to bed or where she wishes to sit and can demonstrate her displeasure when you don't agree with her. You also have to make her think it's her idea to put on her harness and collar after a bath. If you take it slow and easy, she does very well. She's afraid of small children and needs to be in an adults-only home. She also needs to be an only dog or with a dog who will let her be boss, and because of her high prey drive, ... (Read More)she needs a home without pocket pets or cats. Finally, she is slow to trust, so her adopter needs to be willing to meet her beforehand so that Ellie and her new family can begin to bond before she goes home. But wait! Here are the things that make her oh-so-special: This 9-1/2-year old 14-lb. girl bonds with her humans completely. If you've never felt the warmth that emanates from the adoring eyes of a senior dog, then you are missing out! Ellie will always be there for you--watching television with you, 'working' on the computer with you from her bed in the office, protecting you from squirrels and chipmunks from her window seat in the dining room, or exploring the backyard as you two stroll about.This special girl is also practically a pro when it comes to playing with toys, earning the title of 'Puzzlemaster' at her foster home in recognition of her ability to locate treats in both paw and nose puzzles. (She alternates her time between her beloved toys and those equally important naps.) She is house trained to a doggie door, or she will ask to be let outside, too. And Ellie loves to go in the car, wearing her harness at all times so that she is ready to go at a moment's notice. She even recognizes when her foster parents are heading to PetSmart! Yes, Ellie has her quirks, but she is full of appreciation for the little things in life. If you're home much of the time and have a patient heart that appreciates the little things like the love of a quirky dog, then we've got a 'special' on for you today--her name is Ellie. 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.

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.
