  • Rat Terrier Dog For Adoption in Atlanta, GA

    BlueBelle (G...

    rescue
    Breed: Rat Terrier
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: Atlanta, GA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). Life in a puppy mill is a miserable existence, but life there as a breeding dog is a special kind of horror. For four years, that was the only life BlueBelle knew, and it has left its mark on her, both physically and behaviorally. The two teeth that you see in her photos are the only ones she has, and she eats a raw diet due to her allergies. She didn't get the chance to learn how to be sociable with humans while her puppy brain was forming and she was just trying to survive in impoverished, frightening conditions. As a result, her behaviors were like those of a feral dog when she first came to New Rattitude and a veterinary behaviorist diagnosed her with an especially severe case of fears and phobias. As you might expect, 7-year-old BlueBelle is not at all like the average, friendly, playful, lap-sitting, walking buddy that most people imagine when they hear the words “Rat Terrier.” Quiet and small at only 12 lbs., Belle longs for (and deserves) a calm home with loving, gentle adults only, who will respect her need for space, letting her choose whether and when to be touched. In the past, Belle has lived peacefully with a cat but never with children. She'll need at least one canine companion in her new home so that she has a friend and can learn doggy routines. In fact, she’s curious about new dogs and loves sweet, small dogs like herself, but she’ll demand her personal dog-free resting space and do it with a snarl, if necessary. Her threats, however, are reserved for other dogs, and she has never been aggressive toward a person. BlueBelle is house-trained and uses potty pads when no one is home to let her out. She doesn't walk on a leash, so she must have a fenced yard. Her new home should be within easy driving distance of Bogart, Georgia, so that her foster mom can help her transition and avoid any undue panic. Bluebelle won't return your love in the way most approachable dogs would. You'll need to be able to read her subtle signals and take pleasure in small gains, like feeling her stretch a little to nestle more closely into you. But if you've had experience with extremely shy dogs and are the kind of person whose heart will swell simply at the sight of Belle pausing as she takes a drink of water to look you in the eye and ever so briefly wiggling her gray nubbin of a tail, then you may have found your special girl! Take a peek at more photos of beautiful BlueBelle in her online album at http://www.imageevent.com/newrattitude/bluebelle . Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

    Zhorbit (MI)...

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Rat Terrier
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: Atlanta, GA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier. Nine-year-old 15-lb. Zhorbit is a fearful dog because of a neglectful and abusive past. While fear is easily instilled in a dog, it's nearly impossible to completely extinguish. But Zhorbit wants you to know that she’s not “broken.” She just needs specific tools and management in order to live with a little more ease and a little less fear. Once she trusts you, she'll be the funniest dog you ever saw and will even relax enough to let you pet her (a little). She follows commands, knows several tricks, and has excelled in a number of training classes, including basic obedience and agility. She is house-trained and will bark when she needs to be let out. She can be left alone in the house for several hours at a time with no problem. She likes going for walks, so she's a great exercise partner. She will sit on your lap--when she wants to, under her own terms--but you can't pick her up. She'll love sleeping in bed with you and even snuggling, but don't move much or she'll likely growl. She can't tolerate being bathed or having her nails trimmed, and she refuses to be crated. She even has to be sedated to go to the vet for the most minor of procedures. Not many people are savvy enough to handle Zhorbit and the remnants of her unfortunate past. If you are a truly dog-smart person who is able to see the diamond in the rough and who can appreciate a loyal little dog with some significant touch aversions, then maybe you’re the one to help Zhorbit find it a little easier to “just be.” She also requires a childless household with no cats or dogs (or maybe just one other small, submissive dog). Yes, she can be a challenge, but she has a lot to offer and we believe in her ability to progress. Potential adopters must live within driving distance of Lansing, Michigan, so they can have a preadoption meet-and-greet with Zhorbit and her foster parents. For more pictures of Zhorbit, visit her online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/zhorbitdewittmichigan . Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

    rescue
    Breed: Rat Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: Atlanta, GA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Bubbles didn't have the best start to her young life, but things are turning around for her now. This 3-year-old Rat Terrier mix of 17 lbs. was given up by her owner, along with her five 5-month-old puppies. It seems that every sight and sound is new to her, and while she is making great strides in her foster home, she is still quite timid. Quick movements and loud noises can send her running for cover. She needs a calm, quiet home and would not do well with the activity level of most young children. Bubbles does get along well with the other dogs in her foster home. Her experience as a mother may have brought out the disciplinarian in her because she's quick to correct the other dogs if they jump on her. On the whole, being around other dogs seems to boost her confidence, so she would love to have a doggy friend in her new home and would make a great companion to the other pup. Once she's had plenty of time to settle in to a new environment, she'll be a real sweetie, who'll enjoy curling up on the couch with both her human and canine family members. Bubbles is learning basic commands and how to walk nicely on a leash, but she's already house-trained. She's also crate trained and will sometimes go in the crate on her own to rest. Bubbles has so much love to give. If you can provide a patient, loving home to help her learn how to enjoy life, you'll be rewarded with a most loyal little lady. To see more pictures of Bubbles, please visit http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/bubbles . Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

    Breed: Rat Terrier

    Age: Young
    Location: Atlanta, GA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). Archie is just a ball of fun! Approximately 6 months old and 12 lbs., Archie is still growing into his very long legs, but even now, they enable him to run fast and jump high! Archie loves everyone he meets--people and animals alike! This energetic Rattie mix loves to play with the other dogs in his foster home, chase balls, and chew bones. He's a brave, confident boy who's eager to do whatever you throw his way, and then after giving it his all, he will plop down and nap! He's also a chatty fellow, who isn't shy to speak up and let you know when he wants something. Quite the snuggler, Archie sleeps all through the night. He does well being crated during the day with an occasional bark here and there, and he has almost mastered the art of pottying outside. Now Archie is ready to find his lifelong playmate and teacher in the ways of the good life. Wouldn't you like to apply for the job? You can see more pictures of Archie at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/archie . Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

She gets along with other dogs and likes to follow her canine sister around. She's almost 3 months old and weighs about 3 perfect puppy lbs. This smart girl is already preferring to potty outdoors, but being just a pup, she has the occasional accident. Ellie is going to be a wonderful companion.

    Winston (SC)...

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Jack-Rat Terrier
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Senior
    Location: Atlanta, GA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Winston is a handsome gentleman of about 13 years, who seeks a quiet, calm retirement home--a place where he can take long walks with you, lie on a soft bed to keep you company during the day, and cuddle up next to you at night. He only weighs about 20 lbs., so he won't take up much room, and he won't complain if you happen to snore because he's very hard of hearing. A Rat Terrier mixed with a bit of something else--perhaps Jack Russell, Winston is a excellent communicator. He doesn't bark excessively, but he knows how to use his bark to let you know he wants something, whether it's to go out (he is house-trained), to come back in, to be fed, or to have a light turned on so that he can see to jump up in bed with you. Winston has clearly had a rough life up until now; he only has four teeth, so his little tongue tends to hang out the right side of his mouth (he can still eat just about anything you give him, though). One ear is also bent a little, possibly from an old injury, but the floppy ear and dangling tongue give him a rough-around-the-edges look that is endearing! (Check out his grizzled good looks in his online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/winston .) Winston won't let his past get in the way of loving you and being loved in return. Usually calm and quiet, Winston will be so excited when you come home that he'll wag his little nub tail as hard as he can and even bounce up and down, but this gentleman knows better than to jump on you! Winston doesn't seem to need the company of other dogs, but he doesn’t mind having them around. In fact, the hyper 40-lb. hound in his foster home occasionally gets in his face, but Winston just walks the other way. He would also be OK with gentle kids who understand how to be careful and respectful of a nearly deaf senior dog. Winston doesn't need a lot of room to run around and would get along great in an apartment or smaller home, but he won't be choosy about about accommodations as long as YOU are there for him to love. Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

    Breed: Rat Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: Atlanta, GA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Who could resist a little helper and best buddy like Alto? Yes, that's what you'll get when you bring this gentle, handsome 2-year-old home. (To see just how handsome, take a peek at his online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/alto .) A Rat Terrier mix--with a touch of Basenji, perhaps?--who weighs 16 lbs., Alto may be a bit shy when he first meets you or other dogs, but allow him a little time to feel comfortable. Soon he'll be giving both humans and dogs copious kisses! In his foster home, he gets along with the children ages 12, 11, and 6, though it took him a while to warm up to the youngest, possibly because he's not a big fan of noise. Alto prefers a quieter means of self-expression and rarely, if ever, barks. He can even get a little nervous around his more vociferous fur siblings. Alto will make his needs known with a whine, whether he's asking you to give him some attention or to let him go out to potty. (He is fully house-trained.) Basically he's a love bug who likes sitting in your lap, giving kisses, and playing gently. In other words, he's just about perfect! He walks nicely on a leash, but even when he's in his fenced yard, he'll be keeping close to you, as though he wishes he could be helping you with whatever task is at hand. And when he goes out to do his business, he hopes you'll return the favor by accompanying him outside. That's just how much he wants to be your friend. Alto's foster family says that more than anything they hope you will introduce this adorable boy to new experiences, help him enjoy the outdoors, offer him training (that helps all dogs grow in confidence), and then spend lots of cuddle time with him. Doesn't that sound like a pretty fair deal for such a faithful best friend? Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

    Breed: Rat Terrier

    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). You've been looking for a cute guy who will follow you anywhere and has matured into a fine domestic fellow. Well, here I am--all 8 good-looking lbs. of me, waiting for your call. My Teddy Roosevelt Terrier (Type B Rat Terrier) legs are pretty short, but I can still come running for you, for food, or for toys. I’m not interested in running for strangers at the door and barking like a fool because I have more manners than that. Over my 10 years on this earth, I've learned what's important in life: hanging out with you on short walks or just chilling, getting ear and back scratches (only from people I know), and playing a rousing game of ball that ends with you distracting me with food just to get me to stop playing. And naps! Yes, I've become quite the connoisseur of naps. And I don't mean to brag, but I'm a tough guy who's in a pretty good state of health considering that my pancreas doesn't work so well. I just need a couple of common, inexpensive medications and enzymes in my raw food to keep me running around the yard and following you around the house. And speaking of yards, I'd appreciate being able to get to one quickly and easily when nature calls, but if you need to go out, just leave me with some pee pads in a tiled area and I'll oblige. I'm OK with dogs and cats, though sometimes I get cranky if they touch me or my stuff. (My foster mom told me to let you know that I'm best with calm, confident dogs who won't let me push them around.) I'm also okay with adult people, but not so much with kids, who might to touch me. Yeah, I've got this thing about being poked and prodded. I have bitten in the past, and I wear a basket muzzle to the vet, who's the ultimate poker and prodder. Everyone laughs at my quirks and says I'm a character and a half. As long as I get to sleep near you in a cushy crate, I'm fine with being called your doggy entertainment. In fact, call me anything you want; just don't call me late to dinner! If you can't get enough of my handsome profile, you may see more photos and videos at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/perrito . You can watch me collect bottles and do my part for the environment!

    Breed: Rat Terrier
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Young
    Location: Atlanta, GA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). What kind of person would want a 2-year-old dog with matting coat, flaky skin (with a frequent "funky" aroma), and a need for baths three times/week? Well, we hope it's the same kind of person who refuses to judge a book by its cover or a child by the clothes she wears to school. We know there are golden souls like you out there, but we've had a hard time convincing Julianna of this. You see, Julianna was born with a treatable, but incurable skin disorder, much like psoriasis. She's been evaluated by the dermatology staff at the Louisiana State University Small Animal Clinic, and they've advised a routine, which includes using medicated shampoo (cost approximately $25/month) to keep her skin issue under control. The condition isn't contagious, but it does require attention, and yes, it makes her look different. Sadly, in the months that Juliana has patiently waited to hear that she has a home at last, no one--not one single person--has shown any interest in her. Despite this disappointment, this 24-lb. pup has nothing but love in her heart for people. She plays nicely with all the members of her human foster family, who range in age from 3 to 83, and she has the pluck to befriend and romp with a big chocolate Lab at doggy day care (though at home, she'd prefer to be the only dog). She also has the fun-loving energy to chase balls and destroy evil squeaky toys. Julianna is house-trained and knows basic commands like sit, stay, and come. She also walks nicely on a leash, and boy, does she LOVE her daily walks! When it's time for her bath, she's stoically well-behaved, as though she understands you're helping her. And she'll repay you many times over with warm snuggles and loving cuddles. What kind of person could want a dog like Juliana? We think we know. And when you look into her warm, loving eyes and whisper, "Welcome home, little girl," Julianna will know too. Visit her online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/julianna .

    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). Meet Penny! Found dirty and terrified by a kindhearted person in the middle of a busy street in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, this sweet 8-year-old brings new meaning to the phrase "a penny saved..." This Penny is a real keeper!! Not surprisingly, she can be a bit slow to warm up, but if you give her patience and provide reassurance, she'll get comfortable and become a total love. Weighing just 10 lbs., pretty Penny thinks she's all the dog you could want and would be quite happy to be the only dog in a quiet, calm household. And she'll help maintain the serenity of your home with her beautiful manners. She's house-trained, and she comes when called. She never runs, rides beautifully in a car, and walks like a dream on a leash. Would you have room in your heart for this special angel?
