Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). Looking for a cute guy who has matured into a fine domestic fellow? Someone to follow you anywhere? 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 they can still take me to you or to my food or 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 11 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 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 such a tough guy you'd never know 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 ambling 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. I'm forgetful sometimes, but if you patiently remind me what we're doing, I'll get back in the groove. 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! Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

From there, you can access our adoption application or contact our Adoption Team for more info.

More About Rat Terrier Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      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.

      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.

      Breed: Rat Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). Sweet, svelte Cici came to New Rattitude when her owner could no longer care for her and surrendered her to a shelter. Suffering from an eye infection, slightly underweight, and in need of spaying, she required a little extra care in the beginning, but this pretty little princess had no problems with the pampering! Cici endured her medications, baths, and recovery without a single complaint. Though the fur around her eyes is still growing back, the infection has been treated, and her weight is up to the goal of 11 to 12 lbs. Cici's 9 years of experience have equipped her with lovely qualities. She's a gentle, tolerant, and largely quiet girl, who adores being held and petted or sleeping in her crate with lots of soft blankets to nestle under. She loves to chase and shake plush toys and would welcome another dog to snuggle and play with. She gets along with all her canine foster siblings, big and small, as well as with children and grown-ups. Cici does have the Rattie love of the hunt, so she cannot go to a house with cats or other small, uncaged animals. Quite the little lady at all other times, she's house-trained and will go to the door when she needs to go out. She walks well on the leash, but she would love to have a fenced yard to allow her to do her business, chase bugs and squirrels, and explore at her leisure. Little Miss Cici looks forward to having new companions to love and snuggle, some new toys to toss and shake, and a home to cherish happily ever after.

      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!

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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!

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.

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.
