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.

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.

      Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). Pablo is a "ruff-and-tumble" 1-year-old Rat Terrier, who weighs just 10 lbs. An active, energetic boy, Pablo loves to run in the fenced yard and participate in nightly wrestling matches with the other dogs in his foster home. Not one to be intimidated by size, little Pablo is best friends with a 22-lb. female, and he gets along well with every dog he meets. He even likes to chase the kitties and gather them into a tiny herd. When Pablo’s battery finally runs down, he loves to sit next to you and allow you to give him a gentle scratch or two. He’s fully house-trained and when it's bedtime, this smart fellow readily walks into his crate at the request, “Go to your room.” Pablo is a beautiful dog and a true joy to be around. He's hankering to bring a little joy to your neck of the woods. 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.

      Breed: Rat Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Baby
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Handsome Pippin is a 3-1/2-month-old Rat Terrier mix puppy, who currently weighs 14 lbs. Pippin is full of energy and loves to chase his siblings and play. Pippin also likes to be wherever his people are so that he can get belly rubs and give lots of puppy kisses and snuggles. If you’re not giving him the attention he thinks he deserves, he will let you know and then follow up with a kiss of approval when he decides you’ve succeeded. Pippin likes exploring the backyard and playing with the leaves and twigs. He’ll even bring a trophy from the yard to the house from time to time. In addition to outdoor adventures, he’s fond of his toys, especially if they squeak. Pippin lives with other dogs and cats in his foster home and has no problems getting along with them. Pippin is doing well with potty training, and when he is not able to get outside, he will use a potty pad. He is learning to walk on a leash (although he is not very fond of it), and while he’d happily sleep snuggled next to his person, he is crate trained and will sleep in his crate at night. With his great temperament and personality, he’s sure to be a wonderful companion for any home, and he hopes you’ll continue his training so that he can be the most awesome dog ever! No doubt about it, once you meet him, you’ll flip for Pip! Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

      Angel (VA)

      rescue
      Breed: Toy Rat Doxie
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). Angel is a smart, active, and super sweet Rattie mix with a hefty dose of Dappled Dachsund DNA and possibly some mystery ingredients added for extra interest. It's no mystery, however, that adorable 15-lb. 1-year-old Angel lives up to her name. Rescued after a being hit by a car, Angel has captured the heart of everyone she’s met with her loving, gentle, but equally spunky personality. The five weeks of crate rest she was prescribed hardly dented her cheerful temperament, and now, cleared for all activities at last, she's bursting with enthusiasm to find her forever home! Angel enjoys snuggling, belly rubs, and sweet talk, as well as darting about the yard. She can be cowed by loud voices, so a quiet but firm approach is best if she ever needs any correction. Food motivated and eager to please, she responds well to praise and treats, and though she likes to use her mouth playfully when she has energy to burn, she has shown absolutely no aggression in a variety of situations. Angel’s strict crate rest made potty training a challenge, but now that she's moving around and on a good schedule, her house-training has improved immensely. Angel can be a little shy of new people at first, but with kids and grownups alike, she just needs a few seconds of sweetness. Then she’s rolling over for a belly rub and nuzzling them for more. She’s also great with other dogs of all sizes, ready to play and run with them if they can enjoy her energy as much as she does. She does like to chase more than balls, though, so a house with cats is not recommended. On the other hand, a house with a fenced yard, where she could romp around off leash, would please her greatly. Angel will walk or jog as long as you are willing to go and is generally polite on her leash. Just one week after completing her crate rest, she was doing beautifully with basic obedience, like “sit,” “stay,” and “come,” as well as walking on one side when leashed. You can see Angel first learning to sit and stay in this short video at https://youtu.be/DEPsg79z9zs . When she’s done with romping, playing, or training, Angel gladly settles down on a bed in the office, snuggles on a lap while watching TV, wanders the kitchen while her people are cooking, or gets into her crate for a little break. She likes her crate, enjoying her tennis ball and chew toy smeared with peanut butter when her people have to go out. She sleeps in her crate at night and settles down quickly, as long as she's had activity in the evening. Smart, active and delightfully sweet—summed up in one word—Angel. Wouldn't you like to be the active family with whom she shares her cheerful outlook, playfulness, and devotion? Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

      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 .

      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!

      Breed: Rat Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). Strikingly handsome Franklin is about 8 years old and a leggy 14 lbs. Before you're smitten by his good looks, however, you should be aware that he has physical and behavioral evidence of a traumatic head injury, so he has a few quirks. He is very sensitive about most touches to his body and about many types of change in his environment. While he hasn’t bitten those who are cautious and educated about canine body language, he has bitten other people and dogs, primarily out of fear. Franklin will need to go to a home without children and with some experience with this type of highly sensitive dog. He asks so sweetly and insistently for attention, but it takes a careful, methodical approach before he actually accepts touch of any kind. He is still a fun guy, who enjoys playing with soft toys, tugging a little with his person, or throwing the toys in the air. Franklin currently lives with six other terriers and very much likes his private space away from all, except one who's his favorite--a tiny female Rattie. He would probably be fine as an only dog. Franklin is well house-trained and crate trained, travels fairly well in a car, and walks politely on a harness in low-activity environments. He loves clicker training and is being taught to file his own nails. He sleeps in a crate at night so that he can be comfortable in his personal space bubble. He snuggles under his flannel blankie and sometimes gets so comfy that he doesn’t roll out of bed until breakfast is ready. Franklin has a languid, feline grace to his movements and a gentlemanly air about him. Underneath his peculiarities, he is a fine dog, who is looking for a calm home with more than the usual understanding. See more photos of him in his online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/franklin . Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). Lovely Lady lived all her life with an older gentleman, who recently had to move to a long-term care facility. Fortunately a generous good Samaritan (her vet!) spared Lady from homelessness by offering to care for her until her new home could be found. Lady is a feisty 11-year-old weighing just 13 lbs. After spending the last couple of years as an indoor-only dog, she LOVES going on walks and rolling in the grass. She has transitioned from only using pee pads for pottying to going outdoors and is now reliably house trained. Lady is in very good health although throughout her life she has occasionally experienced mild seizures, where she is briefly disoriented and unsteady until the seizure passes. These seem to be stress induced and do not require medication. Lady gets along fine with cats and gentle dogs. When out on a walk, she is generally not reactive to people or dogs, but she does not welcome close contact with strangers and would probably snap if they tried to pet her. She has never been around children and would prefer not to be. At home she is crated when visitors come. She is also crated during the workday when no one is at home, but all other times she has full access to the house. She enjoys snoozing on the couch and keeping an eye on the neighborhood from her perch in the window. Lady is not particularly cuddly, not a lap dog, but she does want to be near her person and will follow them around the house. She is not used to being alone and since that is unavoidable in her current situation, she takes fluoxetine to ease her separation anxiety. Lady is looking for a quiet home with one or two adults who don’t often have company. A retired couple or someone who is home most of the time would be perfect. Someone who enjoys going on walks. Someone who understands we get set in our ways as we get older and maybe a wee bit persnickety. Lady just wants someone to call her own.

      Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). My name is Fetch. I'm an 8-year-old 20-lb. Rat Terrier and quite handsome, don't you think? I used to be sick with heart worms, and I was put in a shelter. After New Rattitude rescued me, my foster family took me to the vet, who gave me medicine to get rid of the heart worms. Today I'm all better, and I feel just as good as I look. I'm super ready for you to adopt me--that is, if you're a woman. I have to tell you, men scare me. But if you are a human of the female persuasion, you and I could have a wonderful life together. After I get to know you, I'll be your most loyal companion. I'm laid-back, but I like to play. I'll love being wherever you are, and that includes snuggling in bed with you. I'd also love having you home with me all day, because you will be the center of my world. I live with other dogs and cats in my foster home. I get along with the dogs, but I'm not fond of cats and I'll chase them. I think I'd prefer to be the only dog in your home because I like getting all the attention, but if you have other dogs, I can share you. I'm fully house-trained and do well in a crate or loose inside when you need to go out. I walk nicely on a leash, but I also love exploring in a fenced yard.
