Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sundae is a gorgeous girl with unique brown, black, and white markings - she's got the coloring of an ice cream sundae with fudge and caramel sauce! She's got a sweet face with black freckles and a black mark on one cheek that looks like a paint brush stroke. Sundae's a skinny girl with long, lanky legs. Sundae is happy to be anything you want her to be...except homeless! She likes to spend her days wrestling with her foster brother, munching on antlers, and cuddling on the couch. She knows how to sit, down, and wait, and loves to run in the dog park. Even when she's not quite sure what you're talking about, you can tell she just wants to ... (Read More)make you happy! She can be crated, but would love some extra TLC (and peanut butter!) to help smooth the transition. She is also working very hard at walking politely on a leash with the help of her favorite hot dogs. She is house trained. (Less)

Animal ID: 1616Charlie (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Imagine being given up by the only home you've ever known! That's what happened to 5-year-old Charlie when his owner no longer had time for him, so it's no wonder that he arrived in foster care depressed and terrified. His foster family has had to work hard to show this 25-lb. Corgi/Rat Terrier mix that most people can be trusted and that there is still fun in this world. Not surprisingly, the healing of Charlie's broken heart is a work in progress, and he still has some fears left from his trauma. He absolutely hates crates, but his foster family is working with him to slowly desensitize him. Fortunately he is house trained and will sit ... (Read More)quietly by the door when he has to go out. Charlie is insecure around very assertive male dogs and he would be happiest with a female canine companion or a small and easy-going male, or would do well as an only dog. He is both scared and intrigued by cats to the point of making himself a pest to the family's dog-savvy cat, so a 'feline-free' home would be best. Lack of trust also makes Charlie fearful and unpredictable when he is confronted with sudden loud noises, commotion, or grabby hands, so he needs an adoptive home without young children (under 12 years old), and all family members need to be dog-savvy and respectful while he learns that he is safe in his home and defensive maneuvers are unnecessary. Despite the sad turn of events in his life, Charlie has a personality that will endear him to the calm and patient person who is ready to give him the real forever home he deserves. With a leash on, he becomes a different dog entirely, full of confidence and wagging his tail! He LOVES to take walks, and long quiet walks on leash will provide him with just the therapeutic experience he needs to bond with his new person. He also loves to ride in a car and is a perfect gentleman when he's out in public. He even went with his foster mom to work and spent nearly an hour soaking up all the attention and petting from complete strangers. He was shy but full of tail wags. Charlie loves to talk and will carry on a grumbling conversation with you about nearly any topic. He just needs to know that forever really means forever this time. If you are of a similar opinion and are willing to earn his trust, you will have a faithful and loyal companion for life. To see more photos of Charlie, check out his photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/charlie1 . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Charlie, 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: 14-04-23-00304Einstein (male)

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)

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.
