Animal ID: 1785Kylo (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This adorable, leggy boy is Kylo, and he can't wait to meet you! Kylo is about 1 year old and is currently underweight at 13 lbs., but he's gaining weight and muscle every day. He is tall and athletic, so when Kylo is fully developed, he will likely weigh around 18 lbs. He has a high level of energy and loves to play fetch with squeaky toys, tennis balls, and his favorite rubber tire toy. After a good play session, he is thrilled to snuggle on the couch and watch television. Kylo is unsure of new people for just a few moments, but as soon as he realizes that a new person is friendly, then he wants all the love and affection they are willing ... (Read More)to give him! Kylo is learning about lots of new things in his foster home, and he soaks up information like a sponge. He is very bright and craves praise and affection, so his training is going very well. Kylo became crate trained and house trained within his first few days at his foster home. His most difficult challenge has been getting used to the other dogs in his home; Kylo is distrustful of other dogs and has not enjoyed the slow attempts to introduce them, so he is kept separated from them. Although Kylo will probably get better around dogs with time, patience, and conditioning, he should be the only dog in his adoptive home for now. His ideal home will have a fenced yard so that he can run and play without encountering other animals. And because he sometimes still nips while playing, he is not a good candidate for a home with very small children, who might mistake his intentions. Kylo has tons of potential to be an amazing companion for the right person or family, and he looks forward to sharing his love and charm with someone willing to open their heart and home to this special little soul.

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-14-00276Pipsqueak (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs Vaccinations 

    Pipsqueak is a 4 year old male who likes to cuddle and play. He gives lots of kisses. He does not get along with other dogs, which is the major reason we are choosing to release him. As is true to Dachshund, he is stubborn at times and attempts to be dominating. He also has toileting issues in that he was pad trained prior to coming to us and he has not broken that habit. He will go potty outside, but not poo. He also will mark his territory around both dogs and new people. He also tends to go potty in the house when he is mad.He is a very loving dog, but requires consistency and deserves more attention than he is currently receiving due to ...

Animal ID: 1766Millie (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Millie is an adorable, scruffy Rat Terrier/Jack Russell mix, who weighs almost 10 lbs. and will turn 1 year old in September. She is a tiny bundle of happiness, bursting with playful energy and an eagerness to learn and grow. Millie was feral as a puppy and very emaciated when a nice neighbor took her in. The neighbor found her a home with a family, but Millie had trouble with the toddlers and young children in the home. Since Millie has come into her foster home filled with playful dogs and no children, she has absolutely blossomed! Millie is friendly, playful, and affectionate with people and insists on testing out the lap of every new ... (Read More)person she meets! She freely trades kisses for snuggles and scratches and does a happy dance any time treats are offered. Millie is also very friendly with dogs of all sizes, though older dogs are sometimes annoyed with her silly puppy antics, and a dog who is possessive of toys, food, or affection might consider her a pest. She gets along with cats, too, and learns quickly about their boundaries. Millie has good house manners and isn't destructive, though she is still learning not to jump on side tables. She is reliably house trained and happily goes into her crate for a treat, where she sleeps quietly throughout the night. Millie has recently discovered the joy of barking, and although she can be redirected with treats, she is probably not well suited for an apartment with thin walls. She walks well on leash but can sometimes feel insecure about it, so her forever home will need to be patient and willing to help her feel more confident when she is out and about. Millie is a resilient, joyful, hilarious little girl, who will bring smiles, love, and laughter to the right home. See more pics of Millie in her online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/millie . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Millie, 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: 16-05-10-00258Fiona (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Female Rat Terrier, small at about 10 pounds, 10 years old, white with black markings. Very playful and active! I've had her since she was 10 weeks old. She loves people, gets along well with most all other animals she has come in contact with. Prefers to be in charge. Would not do well in a home with a large hyper dog, it stresses her out too much because she likes to keep the peace. We are moving out of state and living in a smaller travel trailer and she just would not do well with that. She needs more space and one on one time. She tried living with my nephew, but it just didn't work out (large hyper dog). I would really like to ... (Read More)find her a home with an older person/couple who can spend full time with her. She would do well as an only dog, but she doesn't like to be left alone for long periods of time. She would need her human companions. I can provide pictures upon request. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-30-00088Natalee (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Natalee is a sweet girl looking for a second chance at her forever home. She is 7 years old and enjoys walks, car rides, and naps. She was originally rescued from a local shelter. They cleared her of all behavioral issues. But as we grew to know her we quickly saw signs that this was not true. We believe she came from an abusive home and due to that she fears other dogs and adult males. Because we have other dogs and two adult males in our home she un fortunately is not the right match for us. We believe she would do best in a home with a single adult female where she can have one on one attention and love, she is also ok with cats. She is ... (Read More)house broken, up to date with all vaccinations, and knows all basic commands. For more information on this sweet girl please feel free to call or text @ 262-442-2958 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-01-21-00154Max (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Max is a cute little guy who, once he gets to know you smiles and furiously wags his little tail. He is a Rat Terrier /Pomeranian mix who was born in 2009. He is neutered and current on vaccinations. Max came to be in rescue after getting nippy with the former owners children so he would probably do best in a home without young children. Max is potty trained and crate trained. Max lived with cats, however occasionally chases shy cats who will run. Max was never socialized with other dogs in his former life however, he is currently being fostered with 4 large breed dogs and he is doing very well learning to be a respectful memeber of the ... (Read More)pack. He is currently not allowed on the couch and is learning to sit before he eats and wait before going outside. Max is a little chubby so he is on a diet and getting daily walks where he is learning to heel on leash. After a little practice, he has become a perfect gentleman on the leash and he LOVES his walks! Max knows basic commands, however he would benefit from an obedience class for some confidence building and to help him bond with his new family. Max is fostering in Kenosha; his adoption fee is $200. Please contact Vicki at (262) 496-9324 if you are interested in Max! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-09-11-00630Three Sisters (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Senior

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

    Munchkin & Shortcake are new arrivals to GGOH; intake date 1/4/2015. Papered, Rat Terriers. These precious souls lost their owner; he passed away and sadly, they had nowhere to go. They are getting along very well and are being loved by everyone until we can find a new furever home for them. Both are up-to-date on vaccinations and spayed. Princess has also now joined her sister's here at GGOH; she arrived the week of March 8th, 2015. Princess had originally gone to another party when her owner passed, but sadly, they no longer wanted her and we felt it only right that Princess join her sisters. This is a different case for us here at ... (Read More)GGOH as these three have been together since puppies and are very, very bonded. They must all be adopted together as they would surely suffer if they were split up again. **SPECIAL FAMILY RATE/FEE APPLIES** Ages are 8, 9 and 10 (as of Oct. 2015). If you would like to meet these wonderful girls, please review our adoption policies and procedures (which can be found on our website at www.ggohinc.com) and then come on in during visiting hours for an up-close and personal.

Animal ID: 1457Bandit (male)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

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

    Bandit is a gorgeous blue tricolor Rat Terrier who weighs 22 lbs. At 7 years old, Bandit is a mature gentleman with excellent house manners and a moderate energy level. He has plenty of energy for romping in the back yard, jogging and biking with his foster mom, and entertaining himself with his favorite squeaky toys. Bandit knows when it's time to play and when it's time to relax, and he enjoys snuggling on the couch just as much as playing. He is good with other dogs once introductions have been made, but he prefers them to be mellow like himself. Bandit takes a little bit to warm up to strangers and seems to prefer women, but he's quite ... (Read More)friendly once he gets to know new people. He is loving and patient with the children in his foster home and doesn't mind when it's his turn to play dress-up with them. Bandit is reliably house trained and is perfectly trustworthy and responsible when home alone. He is smart and eager to please, and he has worked hard to learn positive behaviors to replace old habits that he developed prior to rescue. While walking on leash, Bandit can be reactive to people, dogs, and other critters, but he has made great progress learning to redirect his attention. He rides well in the car and is happy to go for rides long and short. Bandit would do well with a calm, confident person or family with terrier experience to help him continue his positive growth. Bandit longs for a stable, secure environment where he will be loved and cherished as the amazing family dog that he is.

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