Animal ID: 1584Buddy (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, I'm Buddy! Buddy is not the most original name in the world, but when I first got to my foster family, I was terrified of everything and everyone, and I would sometimes use my teeth to show it. After more than a month in a loud, scary shelter and two 'exciting' plane rides to get to North Carolina, can you blame me? I just wanted everybody to back off, and the only way my foster parents knew to make me feel better was to speak to me softly and kindly, saying, 'Hey, Buddy,' and 'It's OK, Buddy.' Hearing that soothing word 'Buddy' helped me learn to trust, so the name kind of stuck! Of course now that I'm all settled into my foster home, ... (Read More)my parents call me so many other things: Goofy, Goof Ball, Silly, Snuggle Bug, but my favorite still is little Buddy. I'm a male Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix, about 2 years old and 13 lbs. I'm house trained and crate trained. I LOVE other dogs, especially bigger ones who will play with me and let me snuggle with them. Plus, I love to run around and be silly and chew on toys. I really don't have any interest in the cat that lives here, but I still get pretty scared of new things and new people. Leashes and harnesses still scare me, even though my foster parents try to convince me they are safe, so I should have a securely fenced yard to run around in. There's a little kid who lives here, too, and even though she tries to be still and ignore me, she scares the heck out of me and I avoid her at all costs. Foster mom says my forever home should not have any of those scary tiny humans. Also, even though I know I will learn to trust you (because you will be kind and patient like my foster parents), I want to meet you slowly over time, so you will need to live fairly close to me so that we can have some get-togethers before I move in with you. So what do you think? Don't you want to be my buddy? I am ready to be your Buddy for life. If you'd like to see more photos of me, check them out at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/buddy . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Buddy, 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: 15-04-02-00705Bubaloo (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 

    This is a very sweet young male. He showed up in our yard looking for a good home. Unfortunately one of our dogs did not like him on our property. He was very sweet with humans. When I first found him he sat in my lap for a belly rub for 20 minutes. He is a little shy but does not appear to be aggressive at all. He just wants some loving. I would guess he is about 2 years old. He played well with my other dog. And seems to have energy to romp in the yard but also to be happy sitting in your lap getting love. Currently he is at the Macon County Animal shelter and may be euthanized on April the 10th. I am trying to find him a good home. He is ... (Read More)way too sweet to be put down. If you can provide a good home I will keep him here until you can pick him up. However I cannot keep him long term since one of my dogs does not want anymore brothers or sisters. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-14-00427Shelby (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations, Fearful/Anxious 

    I got shelby from a rescue group 4 years ago,she was part of an animal hoarding case and had been very neglected and mistreated. She is extremely affectionate once she gets to know you but most of the time only warms up completely to women. She would be a perfect companion for a single women with older or no children. She is not aggressive just very submissive. She needs to be in a home with a fenced yard or walked on a leash, has never needed any of this at my home and will come to me when I call her but if a man scares her and she can get outside she will run! She stays in a kennel while I work and prefers to sleep in the bed with you but ... (Read More)does fine in her kennel as well. Overall she is just a sweet little girl who just wants to be loved! My family has had to make some VERY unfortunate decisions about living arrangements and I can only keep one dog and my senior boxer needs more of my care right now. (Less)

Animal ID: 1445Kelsey (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Imagine sitting outside as the sun comes up, sipping morning coffee, with an adoring canine companion at your side. Faithful Kelsey is THAT kind of dog! Not one to hog your lap, this gentle 15-lb, 2-year-old is content to enjoy your company. And she knows what it means to be a lady--greeting you with a wag of the tail instead of jumping on you in excitement, and using a doggie door to do her business outside. Kelsey loves to cuddle in bed although she can be quite the bed hog, sprawled out and giving you a big kiss when you awake. How can one resist such a beautiful big brown-eyed girl with her shiny red coat, white socks, and a scarf to ... (Read More)match? This is a beauty who needs no airbrush for her photogenic poise. Kelsey will be very mindful of you and want to watch over you, occasionally sounding an alarm, which makes her an excellent watch dog, but never barking obsessively. She needs a home with a dog-savvy person who has the patience to let her learn to trust on her own terms. Because of her intense anxiety toward strangers, Kelsey will need a local adoption. Once she overcomes her anxiety and builds the relationship, she will be emotionally tied to you for life. That's just the kind of girl Kelsey is. She would love to sign up for training with you to help build the bond, gain confidence, and overcome distrust. Through her new experiences she will keep growing and that beautiful spark that her foster mom sees and appreciates will shine through for you, too. Kelsey is good with other dogs that she trusts and even wrestles with an active fellow foster brother, but having other canine companions isn't a must for her because she really prefers the companionship of her special human. So put that cup of coffee down for a minute, check out more photos of Kelsey at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/kelsey, and apply to share Kelsey's life journey. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Kelsey, 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    Age: Adult

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

    BB is one of the sweetest girls you ever wanted to meet. He number one skill is sleeping close to you at night. Second would be sitting in your lap while you pet her. Unfortunately, as our family has grown so has the pet population. BB has not adapted well at all. We've even met with a behaviorist. BB needs to be an only dog. It was amazing to watch her shine with the trainer. The ideal placement would be retired or divorced person looking for a buddy.BB does not have a mean bone in her body. I cheked questionable with kids was because in her nervousness, i cant take anything for granted.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rat Terrier in North Carolina
    Rat Terrier Dogs can make good pets in North Carolina 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.
