Rescue Me ID: 16-12-04-00336Ellie (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Meet Miss Ellie, she's been fostering in my home since the Cubs won the world series. This little girl will snuggle her way into your heart and into your home with a little patience and time. She came with some independence issues, and in the past few weeks has jumped hurdles to improve. She whines when she has to go potty, you just have to be the alert owner to determine which one is her potty cry. She crates at night or when we leave for longer then 4hrs and yes, does cry for a little bit. I give her chew toys, a chew bone, and a couple treats when I put her in there. Applicants must be looking for a dog who wants to be you all the time. ... (Read More)The few times I've fallen asleep accidentally with her in my bed, she slept all night without waking up. Using positive reinforcement she has learned to sit, stay, and fetch. She has not needed a leash in my care as I keep treats in my pockets at all times and everytime I call her and she comes she gets a treat. And if she's playing she will even come herself to check in for a treat periodically. She has made great friends with all 3 of my dogs weighing from 105lbs to 15lbs. Along with her kitten best friend BB8 and all my other kitties. She truly is an amazing puppy. I'd really like for her to go to a home where she has another dog friend and even a kid. She loves going on car rides. She needs attention and lots of exercise as all terriers do. She will chew if not entertained. Her training has come a long ways and its going to be important for her future furever home to follow through with her. She is just over 14wks old and has had her heartworm/flea prevention maintained while in foster care. She is being fostered in my home near Wheatland, WI. email me at nikki251024@gmail.com if you'd be interested in meeting the princess who has stolen my heart and everyones who has met her. She deserves to be treated furever like the princess she is. Her adoption fee, $350 includes her spay (using our rescue vet), deworming, Rabies and distemper vaccines, Bordetella, and microchip. Our adoption application is available at https://www.ruffluckdogrescue.com (Less)

Animal ID: 1823Vader (male)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Vader is an adorable, charming Rat Terrier mix, and he can't wait to meet you! Young Vader will celebrate his first birthday this winter. He is currently 14 lbs. and still has a little bit of growing to do as he gains muscle and fills out. Vader is delightfully friendly with all people he meets, and he enjoys making new friends wherever he goes, even at the vet's office! He is very cuddly and affectionate, and he just loves to jump on a lap and roll around on people. His energy level is mild for a terrier pup; he likes snuggling on the couch just as much as playing with toys or taking a walk through the neighborhood. Vader is OK with some of ... (Read More)the dogs in his foster home, but he does not like large dogs as a rule. He has some dog friends with whom he plays nicely, but Vader would be happiest to live in a single-dog home. He wants all the attention and affection to himself! Vader would probably be fine with cats and has spent time in a home with young children, where he did just fine with them. After all, he loves people of all ages! Vader has one little snaggletooth that gives him an adorably funny, endearing little grin. That grin matches his charming, joyful character and always makes people around him smile! Vader is house trained and quickly learning good manners because he craves the praise and treats that come along with training! He's also crate trained and for a treat, he happily jumps into his crate, where he sleeps quietly through the night. Vader is a sweet boy who deserves a happy, wonderful life with a loving family. He'd like to show you more pics of his handsome self at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/vader . ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Vader, please go to New Rattitude's web site at http://www.NewRattitude.org/adopt.htm where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application.

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-05-00209Misty (female)

Rat Terrier    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed 

    Misty is a very scared girl in the shelter setting. She is super scared of men and does have trust issues. She will warm up in time and with a patient owner who will take the time she needs to enjoy life again. She will do best in a home where she is the only dog, but she does like cats. This dog needs a foster or adopter to get out of the shelter, and they are at risk of euthanasia due to space. Tiny Paws will be responsible for the necessary vetting of this dog while in the foster home. If interested in fostering or adopting this dog, we will pull the dog from the shelter and help with transportation if needed. If you have any questions ...

We scooped him out of there and he is living the high life now with 2 dog foster sisters and a Poodle named Raymond. Bullet is quite the charmer, and is fine with dogs, cats, and he LOVES kids. In fact, he goes from person to person seeking attention, and is willing to hang out with anyone. His favorite activity is eating, in fact, he's overdone it and now must lose some weight before he can get a dental. Bullet is 8 years old, easy going, and house trained. He is super friendly and absolutely adorable. He is fostering in Libertyville, IL and his ... (Read More)adoption fee, $300, includes his upcoming dental.

Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations, Abused/Neglected 

    Hi my name is Cash and I am a young adult who weighs about 10 pounds. I am looking for a home where my owner will be dedicated to my learning through positive reinforcement! I also need a home where my new owner is experienced with shy dogs and can help me gain confidence as I can start out very shy and cautious. When I warm up I can be jumpy and mouthy. Once I warm up get used to my environment I will be on the active side.I would do best in a home with older children. I am getting neutered on 9/13 but will be available for adoption looks starting Thursday, 9/15.

    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.

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 ...

Rat Terrier    Age: Senior

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)

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)

Princess has also now joined her sister's here at GGOH; she arrived the week of March 8th, 2015.

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.
