Rescue Me ID: 15-05-20-00303Lady (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Abused/Neglected 

    Lady has been with our family for years. She is a very sweet dog, loves to walk and run outside and explore - also, she loves to lay down by an adult's foot and take really long naps. Lady needs a yard where she can run and use the bathroom as she is not good at waiting in the cage for long hours. She would be a perfect companion for someone who would stay home with her, take her to walks at the end of the day.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Missy looks to be a combo of Feist and Rat Terrier. Missy is about 2 years old and weighs 23 lbs. She was found in the woods with her puppy in January and it has taken her a long time to trust people. When meeting new people she freezes some and still needs a bit of work socializing. The good news is that Missy is a total sweetheart! and totally submissive and non aggressive. Her foster mom has worked very hard with her and says she loves to sit on the couch and cuddle and just have chill time, but when she runs outside she can get pretty silly and actually comes when called. As for sports, Missy isn't in to that aspect of life but ... (Read More)not to say someone couldn't work with her to show her how it's done! She is a very quiet bookwormish girl who might be the wall flower at a school dance! She just needs someone with patience, time and understanding....the results will be well worth it! She is a true 'rescue'. Missy is housetrained, crate trained and 'couch' trained! She will need a fence to keep her safe. (Less)

Animal ID: 1594Herbie (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Hi, I'm Herbie--as in 'The Love Bug.' And a goofy little love bug I am! I'm a 4- to 5-month-old Rat Terrier/Jack Russell mix, who weighs 13 lbs. At first glance, it looks like I have wiry hair, but I'm actually quite soft and fuzzy, and I have a full happy, waggly tail. I am a good listener for such a young guy and learn fast with positive reinforcement. I love to play with everyone, especially kids and other dogs. Sometimes older dogs get tired of me because I have a lot of silly puppy energy, but I understand. I am doing well with my house training, especially when I have a schedule. I don't mind being in a crate when my foster family goes ... (Read More)out, but when they are home, I like to be near them. At night, I'm happy to sleep in my dog bed on the floor of my foster parents' bedroom, and I am a great sleeper. When I'm asleep, I dream of finding a family who will play with me and love me. To help you decide if you'd like to make my dream come true, check out my photos at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/herbie . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Herbie, 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.

Sam is energetic, loves playing with other dogs, is great with kids. He's also intelligent and a fast learner. His antics, including walking backwards, balancing on his hind legs, and eating his meals are amusing and a joy to watch. Sam's come a long way since March and needs a nurturing home with lots of activity. All his vetting is done, including his Heartworm treatment (which he handled like a champ!). Lots more information, photos and videos available!

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)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Hi there, my name is Einstein and I am as smart as my namesake! I came in to rescue in 2014 when my mommy of my entire life (I can't count all the years on my paws, but they tell me I am about 11 now!) was no longer able to afford to care for me. She was moving to a shelter and knew I needed a better life! You see, I have canine diabetes. The cool thing about rescue is they helped me get it all under control! I was once taking twice the amount of insulin, but with a low sugar diet I was able to kick that habit! Folks think it is hard to care for a diabetic dog, but I am so EASY! Okay, so maybe I get ornery around shot time, but as ... (Read More)long as you give me a treat while you do it, I could care less. Yep, treats are the way to my heart! The rescue has gotten my diet down to the BEST food for the lowest expense, so that my new family won't have to spend any more than if I was a young pup (which I am inside!). My insulin lasts months and is easy to find (and only $25 a bottle!). Otherwise, I am a normal dude, loves hoarding shoes, chasing rodents and butterflies, and snuggling with my foster mom. I have all my vaccines and am neutered and HW negative! Could you be my new family?!?! (Less)

    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.

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. 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.
