  • Rat Terrier Dog For Adoption in Atlanta, GA, USA

    Penny (GA)

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Rat Terrier
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). Penny was found wandering the streets of Louisiana over a year ago. When she was first brought into her foster home, she was afraid of everything and wouldn't let anyone touch her. No one will ever know the horrors she may have endured before being rescued, but the patience of her foster parents and Penny's own inner strength, along with an inexpensive antianxiety medication, have helped her work on overcoming her fears based in the past. She has come far! Today this 12-lb. Rattie (probably mixed with a dash of Chihuahua) will sleep next to her foster mom on the couch if her little bed is placed there, and she'll even offer her foster mom a lick on the nose. A pretty 9-year-old with gorgeous white eyelashes, Penny is fully house-trained and follows basic commands. She is a quiet communicator, who will stare at you with her warm, dark eyes to tell you that she wants something. Penny has learned that it's OK to take pleasure in life. She loves to run around the fenced backyard and to play hide-and-seek inside. She thinks it's great fun to chase and sniff out treats that have been tossed into various rooms in the house. She absolutely adores riding in the car! She also enjoys walks but still needs more training with the leash. When you come home, she delights in running up to you, so much so that her foster dad calls her "the greeter doggy." And she loves to snuggle in her own bed and will happily sleep there through the night. All that being said, there are still things that will restimulate Penny's fears and cause her to bite. For this reason, she should not be in a home with young children, who would not be sophisticated enough to recognize her signs of discomfort. For example, she only wants to be touched on her terms and will attempt to defend herself if someone towers over her or touches her from behind. She usually will give a snarl in warning, but if she is awakened by touching, she will startle and bite. Even now, the only time she will let her foster mom pick her up is at the vet's office. Her interactions with other dogs have been mixed. Her ideal family would consist of one or two adults with no children or other pets--someone calm and low-key, who is home most of the time. Penny can be a challenge, but she is living proof that patience and love can heal old wounds. When she approaches you to ask for a brief, gentle scratch and wags her tail ever so slightly, the feeling that you get is just about indescribable. If you're someone who has experienced that feeling before and who can nurture and appreciate small steps of progress based on growing trust, then yours is probably the home Penny has yearned for all along. See more photos of Penny in her online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/penny. Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

    Franklin (GA...

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Rat Terrier
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). Handsome Franklin has impeccable house manners and an enchanting feline-like gracefulness. He is a long-legged 16 lbs. and has matured into quite the gentleman over his 8 years. More than a pretty face, he is also a playful, quick-witted jokester of a terrier, who will "talk" with you and zoom around the house tossing soft toys in the air. Walking on leash is another of his many skills, and he respects the space of any dog or human stranger who respects his space. It's not known if he can live with a cat, but he tolerates the five other terriers in his foster home. Despite all of his attractive qualities, he is not the dog for a family with children, however, because he is dealing with a spinal cord injury in his neck and can bite when touched, sometimes from pain and sometimes to protect himself from pain. Franklin is going through a slow rehabilitation that is hoped will heal his injury, and he and the people around him are learning clever work-arounds. For instance, he has learned to file his own front nails and to get in and out of vehicles on his own. He is crate-trained and sleeps better at night burrowed in fluffy blankets in his crate, safe from accidental bumps by others. Franklin needs a calm environment and can be proactively defensive with his four-legged housemates when he fears they might make contact and hurt him. In his foster home, he has taken on the job of hall monitor and barks at dogs who get too rowdy. He's a sensitive, fastidious guy (house-trained, of course), who prefers routines, avoids raindrops, and likes his bed just so. He is learning to tolerate thunderstorms and fireworks. If you're fascinated by Franklin and the idea of possibly helping him recover from a painful injury, don't be afraid to apply for him. Then you can ask his foster mom any and all questions. She'll be happy to talk all about him and how you can continue his rehab and to have you meet him. For more photos of the magnetic Mr. Franklin, see his online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/franklin. Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

    Breed: Rat Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Baby
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Everybody has an "oops" moment. We had one several weeks ago when three puppies, identified by a shelter as Rat Terrier and subsequently rescued by New Rattitude, started growing and growing and...well, let's just say that we're pretty sure that their family tree contains few, if any, actual Rat Terrier branches. Nevertheless, these cute, sweet pups long for a loving home just as much as any other dog. One member of this trio of "honorary" Ratties is Bella, an adorable almost 4-month-old puppy, weighing 17 lbs. Some folks say they can see some Beagle in her eyes, but since her adult weight may turn out to be around 50 lbs., there is clearly a larger ancestor in her background too. While Bella's exact heritage remains a mystery, there's no doubt that she's one of the sweetest, most playful pups you'll ever meet. She will play for hours with the other dogs in her foster home, and she's friendly with everyone she meets. Bella normally naps snuggled with her littermates, but she also loves the opportunity to cuddle with her human friends too. Being just a puppy, she's still working on her house-training, but she's doing very well and usually waits for an opportunity to go outside. After a long day of fun, Bella will enjoy peaceful evenings with you and will sleep quietly in her crate at night. (She'll also rest there if you have to leave her home alone for a bit.) Bella encourages you to check out some more pics of her at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/bela because she knows that once you do, you won't be able to resist her beautiful eyes and big, soft ears! Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

    Breed: Rat Terrier
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). Spend a few minutes gazing into Rocky's soulful eyes, and you'll realize that he's saying, “Hey, human, do you know how much I love being here with you?" This 20-lb. Rat Terrier has a wise face and a sweet disposition that suggests that while he's experienced a lot in his 8 years, none of it measures up to this very moment that he's spending with you. His touch of arthritis certainly won't keep him from enjoying a leisurely morning walk with lots of sniffing breaks, and his slight hearing loss just means that he doesn't do a lot of barking and sleeps soundly at night. He is house-trained (aside from the occasional "excitement pee" when Foster Mom comes home from a work trip), and he knows how to use a dog door. Every person and dog Rocky meets is a friend, and given his strong connection to people, he should be with someone who's home most of the day. If, like Rocky, you're someone who treasures the simple pleasure of being with a loyal companion, then you may have just found your canine soulmate. For more photos of Rocky, please see his photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/rocky. 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: USA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Bud, or Boudreaux as he's been nicknamed since traveling from Louisiana to his foster home in Tennessee, is a 3-year-old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix weighing 13 lbs. Bud is generally sweet and affectionate, and he enjoys being a snuggly lap dog. He is very polite on a leash and loves going on walks. He's also a good listener and house-trained. A couple of times a day, he gets the “zoomies” and races around the house--very cute and quite entertaining! Bud occasionally exhibits the temperament of a "ragin' Cajun" when he gets overly tired or feels frightened or defensive, however, and his foster parents are working with him through consistent and positive training to help him with his behavioral quirks. For example, Bud can be skittish, and if surprised or frightened, he has snapped at or bitten people. For this reason, he should not go to a home with young children, who would not have the sophistication to recognize Bud's body language or warnings that he's feeling uncomfortable. And while most of the time, he gets along very well with the other dogs in his foster home, he has problems with resource guarding and has bitten dogs if they encroach in his space when he has a possession that he holds near and dear, like a chewy or a toy. Nevertheless, Bud longs for love and acceptance as much as any other dog, and if you're an experienced pet parent who is patient and knows how to use positive training methods, you can help Bud grow in confidence and become the dog he wishes to be--your good boy! Bud is looking for a home close enough to his foster home that he can invite you over and show you firsthand the kinds of situations that can trigger his occasional behavioral issues. To see more pics of this challenging but lovable little dog, check out Bud's online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/bud.

    Breed: Rat Terrier

    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier. My name is Zhorbit, and I can teach you amazing things. I’m not your everyday Rattie girl. I’ve been on this planet for 10 years, and in that time I’ve seen and experienced a lot. Some of those experiences instilled some fear in me that I just can’t seem to shake, but that's OK--you and I can learn and grow together. Here are some things I can teach you: compassion (recognizing when I’m scared and giving me comfort, from a comfortable distance), awareness and attention to detail (if you tune in to the world around us, you’ll become sensitized to the things I fear), and the true meaning of trust (this, you’ll have to earn over time). Here are some things I like: going for walks, getting treats, showing off my tricks, and snuggling my little 15-lb. body next to yours (on my terms). And here are some things I don’t like: being picked up, thunderstorms, fireworks, baths, nail trims, and going to the vet. I take a little pill every day to help me stay calmer. I prefer to be an only dog, but small, mild-tempered dogs are tolerable after an introductory period. Please no cats (I chase them) or young kids (I’m afraid of them)! I am very reliably house-trained and will bark to tell you that I need to go out. So are you ready to learn the amazing things I can teach you? Then you'll need to come over to my foster home near Lansing, Michigan to meet me (My foster mom says a preadoption meet-and-greet is a requirement). By the way, check out my online photo album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/zhorbitdewittmichigan and see what a beautiful girl I am.

    Breed: American Rat Pinscher
    Sex: Male Male

    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Miniature Pinscher / Mixed (short coat). Hi, my name is King Louis, or Louie, for short. I'm a 10-lb. 2-year-old male Rat Terrier/Miniature Pinscher mix, who was found as a stray in Louisiana and taken to the shelter. Then New Rattitude rescued me and brought me to Virginia, where I live with my foster family. I like my foster family and all their dogs and cats, but I'd really like a family of my own. After all, a king does need his castle. And I'm hoping that my castle will have children or dogs (or maybe both) because I'm full of energy and love to play. I'm also hoping that it will have a fenced yard because a king needs to keep in shape and, to tell you the truth, I don't like a leash. It scares me, although I'm trying to be brave (like a king) and working hard at learning to walk on a leash. In the meantime, that yard with a fence would allow me to run and play off leash. After playtime is over, I'll sit and relax with you and maybe curl up in your lap because I like to be the center of attention. I'm very affectionate, and I'll give kisses...lots of kisses. I am house-trained and crate trained. In fact, I get very excited when I go in my crate because that means I get a treat and I really like treats. Nevertheless, I would happily jump into bed with you if I'm allowed so that we could snuggle and I could give you goodnight kisses. If you’re looking for an active little fellow to be your loyal and loving companion, then I, King Louis, heartily accept your offer!

    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Handsome Henry is a very active Rattie mix with a friendly disposition. He loves going on walks or runs to work off his boundless energy and enjoys the occasional trip to the dog park. This 19-lb. 7-year-old is smart and eager to please! He is house-trained and crate trained, and he knows all the basic commands plus some tricks, which he loves to show off. He has a routine--sit, shake, down, and roll over--which he will enthusiastically perform on demand. He also loves toys, especially tennis balls and plush squeaky toys. He tends to favor one or two at a time and carries them from bed to crate and takes special care of them! Henry does have some anxiety issues and can become overstimulated in certain situations. If his warning signs aren’t heeded, he may snap or nip. He currently takes a medication to help keep him calm, but Henry needs an adult-only home with an experienced adopter who will be able to keep him out of trouble by recognizing and avoiding situations that may trigger his anxiety. Henry likes to know what is expected of him. He does best with set boundaries, clear communication, and a consistent routine. Adequate exercise is a must, and he would love to be a part of an active household. Henry is always up for a good adventure! He gets along well with other dogs and would be fine with a doggy sibling. You can see more photos of Henry at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/henry. Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

    Breed: Rat Terrier
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). Luci is a 15-lb. 4-year-old redhead with a heart of gold. She’s the kind of girl who’d like to be an only dog and who thrives at being a companion to her person. And who would that person be? Why, we and Luci think YOU would make her perfect companion--especially if you are a calm single woman or even a couple who enjoys nature and quiet evenings at home. When she first meets you, she may appear a bit shy, but give her a little time to warm up and Luci will be your loyal best friend. Would you like someone to help you when you’re picking vegetables from your garden or just enjoying the flowers in your yard? Then Luci is your girl! (And while you're outdoors, Luci will show off her talent at chasing squirrels and keeping those pesky critters up in the trees where they belong.) How about someone to accompany you as you do your daily chores and move from room to room? Yep, Luci specializes in that! She will find a comfy spot wherever you are and settle in, gazing at you with her beautiful, dark adoring eyes. She even enjoys reading or watching TV, as long as you’re there. She just wants to be a part of your life. She’ll provide you with some entertainment as she plays with her toys and places them in strategic locations for future easy access—please…no neatly organized toy box for this little girl. She will also alert you to the dreaded trash truck stealing all the good stuff placed out by the road or to the neighbors running or bicycling by. And when you tell her, she’ll stop barking and stay quiet until it’s time to play. Luci walks well on a leash and knows basic commands. She’s also house-trained if she’s kept on a schedule and not rushed when allowed outside. She has not mastered a dog door and actually prefers that you go outside with her. (That companion thing works both ways, you know.) In fact, loud or strange sounds like fireworks, bouncing basketballs, or yelling children can make her nervous and she’ll come to you for protection. Wouldn’t you like to be the special someone to offer her reassurance? And doesn't Luci sound like the perfect addition to your life? She’s sitting right here, waiting patiently to hear you say those three wonderful words: "Luci, you’re home!" You can see more pictures of Luci at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/luci.

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Rat Terrier
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    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 .
