Animal ID: 1892Gretchen (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    My name is Gretchen, and I'm a sweet 2-year-old 15-lb. Rat Terrier. I'm a warm, bubbly ball of energy, and I love everything and everyone! I like being with people of any age as long as they play and give me belly rubs. I'm especially fond of my canine foster brother, and I even snuggle up to my three feline foster siblings. A smart and well-mannered lass, I'm fully house-trained and crate trained. Also, I've learned how to sit and wait, although I may wiggle in place the entire time I'm sitting (it's that ball of energy thing). I walk well on a leash, and I'm friendly with everyone I meet in my travels at the park. If you give me the ... (Read More)playtime I need to burn off all my energy (a favorite activity is playing ball--you throw and I'll catch!), at night I'll sit next to you and then snuggle up as we drift off to sleep together. I'll be careful not to move too much so that everyone gets a good night's rest. Mmmmm....doesn't that sound heavenly? If you'd like to get a better idea of what life could be like with me right there with you, check out my online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/gretchen. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING GRETCHEN, 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: 1921Dandy (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Dandy! This handsome boy is about 3 months old, currently 7 lbs. and a perfectly dandy mixture of what is thought to be Rat Terrier, Miniature Pinscher, and Chihuahua. Dandy is full of puppy energy and loves to play! He is very vocal and can be heard growling and wrestling with his toys, his mom (who'll also be up for adoption soon), or his littermates. After all, that's what puppies are supposed to do! Dandy has never met a stranger and gets along with anyone who will give him a little attention. Loving company as he does, he can be a little needy sometimes, and he'll cry if he's not ready for a nap and can't find his family. Dandy is ... (Read More)working on house-training and learning that fingers and toes are not chew toys. He is doing great in both areas. Please visit Dandy's picture album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/dandy to see more of this friendly little pup. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING DANDY, 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: 1961Impala (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Impala is applying for the position of Professional Lap Dog and hopes your home has an opening for the job. Her resume includes 9 to 10 years of experience in all of the skills and criteria necessary for such work. This Rat Terrier mix has high portability (being just a tiny 6 lbs.), no resistance to being picked up, and the agility necessary to jump up onto your lap when you're too tired to stoop over. She has a calm, quiet, gentle nature and isn't fidgety. Her grade point average in house-training and house manners are top notch (Dean's List!). She is very much a congenial team collaborator, getting along beautifully with other dogs as ... (Read More)well as humans. Knowing that she cannot be sitting in a lap ALL the time, she has also developed other talents, such as an adorable paw-waving dance on her hind legs, nice loose leash-walking, and mastery of the dog door. She is currently taking Crate Training 101 and scored top marks on the semifinal exam. And of course she has the requisite adorable face! If you would like to consider Impala for your household Lap Dog, please visit her photo album at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/impala to see her portfolio. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING IMPALA, 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: 1920Dudley (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, my name is Dudley! I'm a 3-month-old Rat Terrier/Miniature Pinscher mix, and I'm looking for a home to call my own. I love people and playing with my littermates. I like to pretend I'm a tough guy, so when I play, I growl as fiercely as I can. My foster family just laughs at me. Right now I weigh about 5 lbs., and the vet thinks I'll be around 10 lbs. when I'm full-grown. I'm trying to learn to potty outside, but I still use potty pads inside for emergencies. To see more pictures of my roly-poly little self, visit my photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/dudley. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ...

Animal ID: 1962Duiker (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    Right from the beginning, it was obvious why this boy's shelter name was Mr. Happy. Duiker is a super-friendly, upbeat, alert, and lively fellow, who greets everyone he meets with welcoming wags. He will follow you around the house, accompany you joyfully on walks, and show off his sitting skills for treats. Although his house-training is not yet perfect, he is quickly getting the hang of it. Being so people oriented and food motivated, he is very responsive to training, and it won't take much longer before he will be reliable in that department. He is also learning to sleep calmly in a crate at nighttime. Duiker is about 18 to 24 months old ... (Read More)and weighs a lean 12 lbs. His house manners are good, with no inappropriate chewing, needless barking, or getting into mischief, and he takes treats gently. He is congenial with other dogs and content to share space with them. A big fan of pats, scratches, and lap snuggles, Duiker doesn't mind any kind of physical handling, which makes it easy when it's time for a bath, toothbrushing, or trips to the vet. He appreciates receiving hugs and kisses but rarely licks back. All in all, he is just a great family dog, who wants to please and be loved in return. See more photos of this sweet fellow at http://imageevent.com/beales/fosters/duiker. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING DUIKER, 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: 1954Banks (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi! My name is Banks. I'm 1 year old, and I weigh a whopping 8 1/2 lbs. My foster mom is helping me eat plenty and eat healthy so that I can gain a pound or so to reach my ideal weight of around 10 lbs. I'm a happy little boy, who loves other dogs and even all three of my feline foster siblings. I might be a little shy around you at first, but if you're patient and calm, I'll be sharing hugs and kisses before you know it. Although I have the playful energy of a typical 1-year-old pup, young children with their excitement and energy tend to scare me, so I hope your family has adults and older children only. In fact, I would be perfectly ... (Read More)content to be part of a quiet household and snuggle in your lap much of the time. (To get a better idea of my all-around cuteness and 'snuggliness,' check out the pics in my online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/banks .) I'm working hard on being fully house-trained and doing a really good job, and I'm crate trained. If you have a spot for me in your home and heart, you and I could have a great life together. Really, it's something you can bank on! ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING BANKS, 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: 1831Luci (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Luci is a 15-lb. 4-year-old redhead with a heart of gold. She's the kind of girl who'd like to be an only dog and who thrives at being a companion to her person. And who would that person be? Why, we and Luci think YOU would make her perfect companion--especially if you are a calm single woman or even a couple who enjoys nature and quiet evenings at home. When she first meets you, she may appear a bit shy, but give her a little time to warm up and Luci will be your loyal best friend. Would you like someone to help you when you're picking vegetables from your garden or just enjoying the flowers in your yard? Then Luci is your girl! (And while ... (Read More)you're outdoors, Luci will show off her talent at chasing squirrels and keeping those pesky critters up in the trees where they belong.) How about someone to accompany you as you do your daily chores and move from room to room? Yep, Luci specializes in that! She will find a comfy spot wherever you are and settle in, gazing at you with her beautiful, dark adoring eyes. She even enjoys reading or watching TV, as long as you're there. She just wants to be a part of your life. She'll provide you with some entertainment as she plays with her toys and places them in strategic locations for future easy access -please, no neatly organized toy box for this little girl. She will also alert you to the dreaded trash truck stealing all the good stuff placed out by the road or to the neighbors running or bicycling by. And when you tell her, she'll stop barking and stay quiet until it's time to play. Luci walks well on a leash and knows basic commands. She's also house-trained if she's kept on a schedule and not rushed when allowed outside. She has not mastered a dog door and actually prefers that you go outside with her. (That companion thing works both ways, you know.) In fact, loud or strange sounds like fireworks, bouncing basketballs, or yelling children can make her nervous and she'll come to you for protection. Wouldn't you like to be the special someone to offer her reassurance? And doesn't Luci sound like the perfect addition to your life? She's sitting right here, waiting patiently to hear you say those three wonderful words: 'Luci, you're home!' You can see more pictures of Luci at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/luci. ------------------------------------------------------ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING LUCI, 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.

    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).

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.

    A single Rat Terrier can kill thousands of rodents in just a few hours. Teddy Roosevelt named the Rat Terrier breed. Rat Terriers come in several color variations, but the first Rat Terriers were always black and tan. Rat Terriers are often mistaken for Jack Russells.
