Animal ID: 1613Bugg (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Puppy

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

    Bugg is a fun-loving boy, who is all puppy. He is currently 10 to 11 lbs. and by the look of his structure has some growing to do. About 5 months old, Bugg is ready for action and primed for puppy training classes. He is doing well on his potty training as long as he is monitored and kept on a schedule. Bugg is respectfully curious about cats and grows bored of them unless they run, but he sure does love his canine foster brothers and would so enjoy a home with another doggie playmate. Bugg is also hoping that his new family is willing to put in the time to train him to be the best family dog possible. If you are looking for a great puppy ...

Animal ID: 1597Hans (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Hans is a 5-year-old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix, who is very loving and eager to please. He has adapted to his foster home quickly and gets along well with the other dogs in the home, though he's not fond of cats and has a tendency to chase them. Hans enjoys being around people and loves to be the center of attention. He wants to be wherever you are. He enjoys curling on your lap while you are watching TV or just relaxing, and you'll hardly know he's there because he weighs just 12 lbs. He's also fond of sleeping with his people in their bed where he can snuggle, whether it's under or on top of the covers or on the pillow (he's not picky). ... (Read More)Hans loves playing with toys, especially squeaky ones, and taking walks, doing well on a leash, but he would also really like a fenced-in backyard where he could leisurely soak up the sun. Hans is house trained and will tolerate going into a crate, although he is not fond of it. He would do well as an only dog but would also be fine with a canine brother or sister. If a loyal and loving companion is what you're looking for, your hunt is over because handsome Hans is right here! ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Hans, 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: 1599Dottie (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Dottie is a friendly 16-lb. 6-year-old, who has lots of energy and retains her puppy playfulness. She loves people and toys and will play fetch and tug-of-war with great happiness. Dottie is good with other dogs but likes to let them know that 'girls rule' by lifting her leg to pee where her canine foster brothers have pottied! She walks well on a leash and is house trained and crate trained. However, if it's bedtime, she will cry and howl to join you in bed because she really wants to snuggle. At some point in Dottie's life, her right rear leg was broken but not treated. This has left her with a bit of a stiff gait, but this does not slow ... (Read More)her down or cause her pain. Dottie is hoping that there's an enthusiastic ball-thrower and tug-of-war player reading this because she is so eager to find her forever home.

Rescue Me ID: 15-04-22-00340Turbo (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,
 Fearful/Anxious 

    Hello, I am looking for a new home for our rescue Rat Terrier dog named Turbo who is two to three years old. Our family is living in a rental house with our two dogs Max and Turbo. In June, my mother will be moving in with us with her dog Jennie, and our lease allows only two pets to live in the rental house. Turbo is male and we got him from a shelter in Atlanta when we lived in Georgia. Turbo has lived with us for two years. He is current on all of his shots and takes heartworm and flea and tick medication monthly. Turbo is also neutered and has a tracking device implanted in him. Turbo has a nervous disposition but is also very ... (Read More)sweet in nature. When we first got him, he would run and hide from us. We were eventually able to earn Turbo's trust. He loves to sit on his owner's lap during television time and crawl into his master's bed when they are napping. Turbo gets along fine with our Golden Retriever but is definitely the type of dog who needs to be 'The King'. Like most Terriers, he tends to get jealous and wants all of the attention to himself. However, he is still very sweet and caring; he does not get into fights with our golden, and can often be found napping and cuddling with him. Turbo tolerates children but does growl at small children and babies. He would work best in a home with teenagers or adults only. Turbo has a lot of energy and really needs to be in a home where there is a closed fence. He also needs to be taken out consistently for long walks around the neighborhood. He is prone to do the 'Great Escape' if he is not walked regularly. He walks well on a leash, but will need to be reminded of who his master is when walking. He also is big on marking his territory when walking. Turbo is trained to sleep in a crate although he would prefer to sleep in his caregiver's bed under the blankets. He will not go potty in his crate. Upon leaving the house, Turbo is trained to stay in his crate. Turbo still has house 'accidents' both #1 and #2 if he is not taken out at regular times throughout the day. Upon rising he will go #1 outside but will need to be walked in the neighborhood to do #2. Many mornings he will do #2 in two different locations. During the day he will need to be taken out several times to go #1, otherwise he will sneak away to a room to urinate. If left in his crate during the day, he will only require one potty break mid day. In the evening after dinner, he will need to be taken out to do #1 and #2. We feed Turbo once a day in the evening. In the morning he is given one snack. He is trained to wait for his treat and food with the stay command. Like most Terriers he will need daily reminders of his commands. Turbo loves to run and play with squeaky toys and chase squirrels. Our current house does not have a fence and a doggie door, so a house with such items may help improve his bathroom issues and his current need for frequent walks. We are very sad to be giving up Turbo, because he really is a sweet and caring little guy. Unfortunately, since we are constrained by our landlord, it is not feasible to have Turbo in this home once my mother moves in. Turbo deserves better; he needs space to run free and explore on his own terms, but he also needs individual love and care. We do not want to give Turbo up, but we will if it means giving him a better home. Please help us give our little guy the loving home he deserves! Thank you. (Less)

Animal ID: 1555Bronn (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Puppy

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

    Meet handsome little Bronn! He is 4 months old, weighs 8 lbs., and has a great temperament and personality, with a playful as well as a calm side. Bronn enjoys playing chase with the cats, playing with his toys, and running around with his canine siblings in the backyard at his foster home. Once playtime is over, he enjoys snuggling with you, giving lots of puppy kisses, or just having lap time with you. Bronn is definitely a people dog; he enjoys being wherever you are. He enjoys sleeping in the bed and will snuggle really close to you. He can be shy when he first meets new people but warms up quickly. He does well around the other dogs ... (Read More)and cats in his foster home. Bronn would benefit from puppy obedience class which would continue to help with socialization skills, and he is currently working on kennel training, walking on a leash, and house training. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Bronn, 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

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

    Beanie is an adorable and feisty little guy who is about 2 years old. His smile is so sweet and winning. This cutie has more energy than a Mexican jumping bean and loves to play. Beanie gets along with other dogs. We are not sure how much obedience training he has had. But he is young and smart, so he should learn his lessons quickly. Since he is a very adept escape artist, Beanie must go to a home where he is not left unsupervised in a fenced yard or tied/chained up. His ideal home will be with someone who will provide him with daily vigorous exercise and/or playtime. Won't you make his dream of becoming the best friend of someone ... (Read More)special come true? Beanie will repay you with cuddles, kisses, and lots of love! Please apply to adopt Beanie today. (Less)
