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

    Betsy (VA)

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Rat Terrier
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). Beautiful Betsy is a 14.5-lb. blue sable Rat Terrier, who spent most of her first 8 years giving birth to litters of puppies. Now she is ready to spend the next 8-plus years experiencing the life and love she should have had all along. Understandably, Betsy was very fearful when she first came into rescue, but now she has discovered that life is pretty sweet. She loves other dogs and runs and chases with her foster brother Ratties. She also gets along fine with friendly bigger dogs. In her foster home, one of her favorite things is to nap with the other dogs and even the cat! While she's still very shy, she has made great progress at learning to trust humans. She enjoys getting a good massage at arm's length, and if you're lying down, she'll snuggle up against you. She's also making progress at house-training, going a few days with no accidents before there is a little puddle. Betsy loves to go outdoors for a run around the yard and even loves snowflakes. She must have a securely fenced yard, though, because she's still leery of walking on leash. (She continues to practice and hopes she'll enjoy taking walks soon.) Betsy barks only when there's something very important you need to know. For example, there's someone at the door, she would like to come in from outside, or it's time for dinner. This gal loves mealtimes and treats. She'll gladly accept treats from your hand and from strangers' hands, too. She eats in her crate and will sleep there overnight or when you're out. With another dog crated nearby, she doesn't fuss at all. Now that Betsy has learned that life is good, she has started to dream a little about her future. In it, she sees a quiet home where she can feel safe, a lovely yard with a good fence, some pet friends, and a patient human to love. Could you be the one to make her dream come true? Check out more photos of Betsy at imageevent/newrattitude/betsy . Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

    Remy (VA)

    rescue
    Breed: Rat Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Meet Remy, a sweet, mellow fellow who loves long walks and couch snuggles. This 9-year-old Rat Terrier mix has been a delight to his foster family. He is house-trained, gets along great with the other dogs in his foster home, and is an all-around good-natured dog. Remy adores his humans, and although he is a bit shy when meeting new people, all he needs is a few minutes to warm up to them, especially if they are respectful of his space. Remy didn't have the healthiest diet in his former home, but in his foster home, he has been a good sport about avoiding human food and eating grain-free kibble. He has already lost some weight and is down to 23lbs., but he has a few more to go to get down to his ideal weight of 20 lbs. Morning walks are an important part of his weight management plan, and he will need a family committed to continuing both a wholesome diet and regular exercise, even after he reaches his healthy weight of approximately 20 lbs. This precious boy, with his capacity for trust and love, charms his humans every day. Check out Remy's online photo album at imageevent/newrattitude/remy, and you'll be enchanted too. 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: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Charlotte is an energetic little girl full of puppy energy--not too surprising considering that she's just 10 months old. But something that did come as a surprise to the foster parents of this adorable Rat Terrier mix was the discovery that she is deaf. While it wasn't expected, Charlotte's deafness inhibits her not one bit, as this lively little lady just loves to play with the dogs (all larger than she) in her foster home. However, it does mean that she can't hear the warning growl of a dog that doesn't appreciate Charlotte's energy level or that doesn't want to play, so she wouldn't get the message until the dog snapped at her. Therefore she likely wouldn't be a good fit for a home that already has a senior dog. She also can't hear the approach of someone behind her and might nip if she were grabbed or touched unexpectedly, so she shouldn't go to a home with children who are too young to understand that they need to alert her with visual cues. On the other hand, Charlotte certainly doesn't need to hear to know that she loves to be held and to snuggle with her human companions. She will be so comfortable that she'll fall asleep in your arms like a baby, and she hopes you won't find that too much trouble since she's a featherweight at just 9.5 lbs. Charlotte likes to go for a daily walk and is well-mannered on the leash. She's also house-trained as long as she gets to go outdoors to potty on a regular schedule. And while she'll fuss for just a little while, she will go into her crate at bedtime and soon fall asleep. Wouldn't you love to cuddle this baby in your arms?

    Breed: Rat Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Don't stare at Stanley's pix too long or you might develop CO, or Cuteness Overload, a condition caused by visual contact with dogs possessing perennial puppy faces like Stanley's! This happy-go-lucky 1-year-old Rat Terrier mix has lots of love to give. While he may initially appear shy, even a little fearful with new folks, give him a second and he'll warm up! He's the kind of dog who will want to be right where you are, whether he's looking to play, cuddle, or curl his tiny 10 lbs. on your lap. He's perfectly content to occupy himself with his toys, but he'll still prefer your company and wants you to spend most of your day at home. If you need to go out for an hour or two, he'll be OK in a crate, and he'll sleep in one overnight as long as he knows you're nearby. Stanley gets along with the other dogs in his foster home and is curious and playful (not aggressive) with the cat. Eager to please, Stanley is very food motivated, leading him sometimes to be protective of his food and treats toward other pets, but he's always a good student. He lets his foster parents know when he needs to go outside and hasn't had a single accident in his foster home. Stanley is practicing some basic commands like come, sit, and shake, and he's catching on fast. He is also learning manners on a leash and harness, and he enjoys little walks. He is a polite traveler and a great passenger in the car. Doesn't Stanley sound like he's the stuff of which great pet companions are made? Check out more photos of Stanley at imageevent/newrattitude/stanley , but remember, don't look too long! Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

    Yates (GA)

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Rat Terrier
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). As Yates prances around the house and yard, visitors seldom realize that he is blind until his foster mom points out that he has no eyeballs. They cannot believe that he has no vision as he comes to greet them, navigating around obstacles, jumping onto or off the sofa, and carefully going up or down the staircase. He will sometimes even jump in front of them pogo-stick style, hoping they'll catch him in the air and hold him up in their arms where he can get to know them better. This spunky 10-year-old had to have surgery in December to remove eyes that were painfully damaged (by cataracts, glaucoma, lens displacement, and vascularization) and at risk of injury, so he has had to learn to get around in complete darkness. Because he doesn't always move as cautiously as he should in new environments, he will often bump into things, but that really doesn't seem to bother him. He is learning more and more to use his nose, ears, and whiskers to "see" where he is going. Being a small fellow (just 11 lbs.), Yates found stairs especially intimidating in the beginning, but he now goes up and down completely on his own multiple times every day. Yates gets along very nicely with other friendly dogs and is happy to share his space and toys. He loves going on walks and will plunge ahead with enthusiasm and curiosity, just needing an occasional "Stop!" command to prevent him from running into or falling off an obstacle. He talks back to dogs barking nearby and sometimes gets a little frustrated when he can't reach them for greetings because he is quite the social little fellow. With humans, he is friendly, gentle, and snuggly, and he has never met anyone, even little children, that he hasn't liked. Yates has done well with his house-training as long as he is taken out on a regular schedule and watched to make sure he remembers to do his business. He actually does best on leashed walks, and he will "go" reliably within the first few yards, making him a great candidate for a home without a fenced yard. His favorite thing of all is to find a snug hidey-hole for a snooze, burrowed beneath blankets, couch covers, or a pile of laundry. Please check out lots more photos and a few videos of this resilient cuddle buddy in his album atimageevent/beales/fosters/yates . Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

    Tracy (LA)

    rescue
    Breed: Rat Terrier
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). Look at Tracy's smile! Doesn't she look like a happy, lively girl? She is! She loves to run about inside the fenced yard of her foster home and romp with the other dogs. If you were to give her a call, those pretty ears would perk up and she would find her way across the yard to join you. And what, you might ask, is so special about that? Well, lively Miss Tracy has significant vision loss. But, as she runs inside her fenced yard or plays with her canine foster siblings, you'd never suspect that her vision is impaired. Tracy, an approximately 9-year-old 28-lb. Rat Terrier mix has a genetic condition that will likely cause her to become blind someday. Fortunately it has progressed gradually enough to enable Tracy to fine-tune her other senses so that she can rely on them when she can no longer see. She can follow your voice to find you on the sofa, where she will happily sit with you to be petted and have her ears rubbed. And she can use her nose skillfully to detect the difference between dogs and cats. She knows that she gets along with the former and would love to have a dog buddy or two in her home, but she is most definitely not a fan of the latter! Tracy is house-trained and walks nicely on a leash. She would so love to be adopted right now to have time to acclimate to her new home while she can still see a bit. Besides, if she can truly see your face for just a little while, she'll always have that vision to hold in her heart as her sight dims. Tracy is a wonderful companion, who isn't asking for your pity. She's only asking for a chance. See more photos of Tracy at imageevent/newrattitude/tracy . 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). Meet Graham, the 3-year-old Rattie mix, who would make a great buddy for just about anybody because he gets along with just about everybody! Sweet and easygoing, Graham likes other dogs, cats, and kids, but he also seems just as happy having his human all to himself. He'll enjoy a toy at times, but he'd much prefer to interact with his people. He loves to sit close for snuggles and petting, so he's hoping you'll be home most of the time. Even though he has a fairly calm energy level, his sociability occasionally might get the better of him, and he'll attempt to work his tiny 9-lb. body under your fence to go visit a neighbor or two. You'll want to have good fencing and a watchful eye to keep him safe in your yard. Since he's pretty good on leash with a harness, you can help keep his curiosity in check by providing lots of walks with stimulating sights and interesting smells. Graham is house-trained, as well as crate trained, and is currently standing by waiting to hear from you. Go grab a look at more photos of him in his online album at imageevent/newrattitude/graham , but don't make him wait too long. Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Imagine being a cute-as-a-button 6-lb. dog and having giant humans tower over you. Kinda scary, right? You're barely as big as one of their shoes! Now imagine being poked, picked up, and mishandled by those humans even when you try your best to tell them you're scared or that it hurts. You try looking away, hiding, giving the stink eye, growling, even showing teeth, but they keep on ignoring you. Is it because you're so little that your feelings don't count? When nothing else works, you finally try biting as hard as your tiny jaw will permit. It works!! But it also lands you in the shelter... Well, that's probably the story of Oscar, an 8-year-old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix, whose emotions and body language were likely constantly ignored until the inevitable happened. Actually that's only the first part of the story because Oscar had the good fortune to be rescued by New Rattitude and fostered by a kind, patient family, who have worked hard to undo the earlier damage and to help Oscar feel safe. And when Oscar is feeling safe and secure, what a delightful fellow he is! He's a silly little cuddle bug who will shower you with kisses of thankfulness. He's a low-energy (some might even say lazy) guy, who likes his routines, has great house manners, including being fully house-trained, and likes walks around the neighborhood, but does not need them. Oscar would prefer not to share your affection or his food with any other canines, but if you have a smaller, submissive dog or even a cat, he'd likely get along with them fairly well. Don't get us wrong; he still requires respect. Sudden movements in his direction can still trigger his defenses, so he should not be around young children or anyone who is not able to respect his need to feel safe. But a relatively calm home with one or two dog-savvy adults will allow Oscar to begin the newest and very best chapter in his life's story. Check out additional pictures at imageevent/newrattitude/oscarand get an even better idea of how you can put the happily-ever-after ending on this tale.

    Lucy (KY)

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Rat Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat). The lovely Lucy is a 9-year-old Rat Terrier mix weighing about 20 lbs. Her big floppy ears suggest that one of her parents may have been a Beagle or some other type hound. Lucy is a sweet, loving, obedient, and loyal dog. She can be shy and fearful of loud noises, and new people, places, and situations can be difficult for her initially. Obedience training has helped to improve her level of confidence tremendously, and now she recovers from scary things almost instantly. Lucy is house-trained and well-behaved. She loves to be outside but is happy to look out the window or be in her bed inside, and she will always take a lap if one is available. Lucy has rarely turned down an opportunity to be cuddled and would prefer to sleep in bed with her people at night. She enjoys going for walks on leash and the opportunity to run and explore, taking great delight and never tiring on hikes and trails. Lucy gets along with other dogs and cats. If introduced properly to humans, she does well; however she does not tolerate being chased, grabbed unannounced, hovered over, or made to feel threatened in any way. She has learned to leave situations that make her nervous, but she will snap if her fear cues are not respected. For this reason, she should not be in a home with young children, who might not understand boundaries or recognize the cues that indicate Lucy is uncomfortable. This smart, eager-to-please sweetie would make an awesome companion for gentle, knowledgeable adults who can provide her with consistency and direction, mental stimulation, daily exercise, and lots of snuggling opportunities. See more photos and videos of Lucy atimageevent/newrattitude/lucy . 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: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Sweet Sissy is a 2 -year-old 25-lb. Rat Terrier mix, who is calm and lovable. A little shy at first, once she's comfortable, she'll be more than ready to sit and snuggle with you and give you kisses. In fact, she's the kind of dog who always wants to be where her people are, relishing every little bit of attention that comes her way. That's not at all surprising since Sissy came to New Rattitude as a very thin but very dedicated mama with a litter of puppies! Now that her responsibilities as a mom are behind her, she is super excited to be the recipient of some TLC meant solely for her. Sissy gets along with the other dogs and cats in her foster home, but she really is more people-oriented and since she prefers to be the sole recipient of your attention, she should go to a home without other pets or children. Sissy is house-trained and enjoys having a backyard to come and go as she pleases. She's also crate-trained but is so trustworthy inside the house that she never really needs to be crated. While she's currently not fond of a leash, some leash training would provide her with opportunities for special bonding time by taking walks with her humans. Sissy's favorite time is at night, at bedtime to be exact, when she approaches her people with a nudge and a kiss. It's her sweet request to join you in bed, where she will snuggle close, and you'll wonder how you ever got along without her. Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.
