    Breed: Rat Terrier
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). I'm Franklin, or Frankie to my friends and Handsome Little Prince to my close friends for obvious reasons. I'm a lean and tall 15 lbs. with about 8 years of mature manners. In addition to my good looks, I am well house-trained, crate trained, and a polite companion on walks. I am too humble to claim this myself, but I've been told I'm a doggy genius. I admit I'm a fast study when trained with positive reinforcement. I really want to be petted, but my neck hurts as I'm still recovering from a spinal cord injury there and sometimes I get inflammation down my back, too. I can get scared that hands reaching for me or dogs bumping into me will cause pain, so I may defend myself with a bite. Sometimes I make a screamy sound first, which works pretty well to make those scary things give me space, but I hope you can understand why I don't like to be surprised by touch, especially when I'm sleeping, or why I shouldn't be around kids or dogs who won't respect my space. Everyone who gives me space is my friend, and I like to meet new people and polite dogs. I live harmoniously with lots of small dogs but no cats, so my foster mom doesn't speculate how I might act around cats. I have cleverly devised a way to be petted safely by carefully rubbing my head under an offered hand, and I like to sit in the laps of trusted people. I love to play with soft toys and run and roll like a goofball, with human laughter making me even happier. I'm sensitive to raindrops touching me, but I've learned to run outside to pee anyway. I used to be afraid of the dark outside, but now I warn away what might be lurking in the shadows with my princely bark. Just a few barks here and there, nothing crazy--just enough to put random creatures on notice. Not to brag, but everywhere I go, women adore me. My foster mom says it's because of my lovably quirky personality and not just because I'm so debonair, which you can see in my photos at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/franklin . I've done some traveling in my time, and I'm ready to settle down into my forever home to love gentle folks who understand me. Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). What does a rescued Rat Terrier do after she has spent most of her estimated 15 years imprisoned in a puppy mill, producing litter after litter of babies? If she's a plucky little survivor named Emily May, she spins in circles of joy! It's no accident that one of Em's photos looks like a butterfly wriggling out of its cocoon because this 11-lb. sweetheart is getting ready to spread her wings and live life at last! Thanks to the legendary lifespan of the Rat Terrier and Emily May's overall good health, she likely has more than a few wonderful years ahead of her. She can't wait for her adopter to find her so that they can embark on this journey together. Emily May is very shy at first, a result of having been neglected in the puppy mill, but her inherently sweet nature helps her warm up fairly quickly. She is playful and active, given her age, and has that aforementioned delightful habit of showing she's happy by spinning round and round! Her favorite pursuits involve being petted, giving kisses, snuggling in your lap, and luxuriating in the warmth of her dog bed strategically placed to capture the sun's rays. Emily May gets along well with cats and other small dogs, but she should not be around large dogs due to her small size. She would love her home to be calm and her people to be there most of the time. Emily May is now crate trained and is making great progress in her house-training. She does quite well with frequent, regular opportunities to go outside. Although she has lost all her teeth (a result of lack of care in the puppy mill), she has no problem dining on kibble softened with warm water and topped with a small amount of canned food. Emily May is such a sweet dog, an inspiring example of overcoming a sad past. Be inspired and help this beautiful little dog experience the life she so richly deserves. Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

    Breed: Rat Terrier-Unknown Mix

    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi, I'm Severus and I can't wait to find my forever home! You see, I was found as a stray and put in a shelter and even though I can't remember how it all happened, I do remember that it was scary and no fun! I am a Rattie mix, just a little guy of 12 lbs., and only 5 years old so I've got tons of energy and I just love to play. I am a little shy at first, and sometimes uncomfortable meeting new human friends, but if you're patient and take things slow while I get to know you, we'll probably do just fine. I do not like cats! I chase them, so no cats please. I get along with the other dogs in my foster home and sometimes the other dogs and I go outside to play. Did I mention that I love to play? There's even a new foster dog here and we've become friends, but my foster parents wanted me to tell you that I "still could benefit from an obedience training class to help with my socialization." Although I might not know what those big words mean, I do know these things about me: I am house-trained, and I do well either in a crate or free in the home; I walk good on a leash, but I'd really love a yard with a fence where I could run and play; and finally, I am very loyal and enjoy being wherever my people are, including their bed. If you've ever been left alone like me, then you know how wonderful it is to snuggle up to your very own person. It's a feeling that I wish could go on forever, and that's why I'm here, looking for a human or two—somebody like you--with a strong arm for throwing a ball and a soft heart to love a faithful boy like me. So now that you know what a good boy I am, I'm hoping you'll put in an application so I can find out more about you. I just know we'll be great together! Our adoption fee is $175 for adult dogs or $225 for puppies under 6 months old.

    Bud (TN)

    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! However, Bud occasionally exhibits the temperament of a "ragin' Cajun" when he gets overly tired or feels frightened or defensive, and he can be quite skittish. Some of his skittishness may stem from the fact that he experiences some joint pain, for which he has recently been prescribed a daily anti-inflammatory. The medicine, which averages around 35 dollars per month, greatly improves his attitude and quality of life, but it hasn't totally eliminated his behavioral quirks. For example, if he is snuggled completely under a blanket and cannot see you, he will respond in fear when touched through the blanket. 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. He has improved in this area (his foster parents help him by using consistent positive training), and he is a little less aggressively protecting chewies but still very possessive over toys. 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
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Senior
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). Meet Beatrice, an exquisitely eared Rat Terrier, who was rescued with five other dogs from a backyard breeder. For most of her 13 years, Beatrice lived in a crate with brief visits to a small yard covered with brick pavers. The first time she set foot on grass was a shock, but she adjusted quickly. Today Beatrice is learning how wonderful life as a dog can be! And you'd never know where she came from as she is one of the happiest, friendliest dogs you'll ever meet. She wags her whole body in joy at being petted and talked to, and she was in awe when she discovered the TV in her foster home. (She's a perfect TV buddy.) Beatrice has no teeth--a condition which doesn't keep her from enjoying meals or licking you profusely but does give her a cute little "tongue-out" grin. Beatrice has no issues with dogs or cats. In fact, she seems friendly with all other animals. She takes a few minutes to warm up to new people but has no fear or aggression issues. She has even met the grandchildren of her foster parents and was happy to get affection from them. Beatrice is working very hard to understand house-training, but because she lived in a crate for so long, it's a slow process. You'll be able to help by taking her outside for brief walks on a frequent, regular schedule so that she'll have plenty of opportunities to "perform" and learn what's expected of her. And when the accidents happen, they are tiny since Beatrice herself weighs only 10 lbs. Wouldn't you like to share a dog's absolute joy as she discovers life beyond the crate? That's possible if you open your home and heart to Beatrice.

    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.

    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). Hi! We're Gizmo and Stripe, Rattie mix brothers, who are 9 years old and weigh 11 and 12 lbs. respectively. We have never been apart from each other, so we come to you as a package deal. That's right! We need to be adopted together. Our foster parents tell us that we are good boys and no trouble at all. We just want to sit with you and get lots of love, attention, and kisses. We get along with the other dogs and cats in our foster home, but really we'd prefer to be the only two fellas in your life. (More attention for us, you see.) We're fully house-trained and crate trained, but we're so good loose in the house that we don't really need to go in a crate. Nevertheless, we don't mind a crate as long as you give us a treat. We'll sleep there at night if you want, but we would rather sleep in bed with you and help you stay warm and cozy at night. One of us, Gizmo, likes to burrow under the covers, while the other, Stripe, will spend most of the time on top with occasional forays to the warmer regions beneath the sheets. Both of us are very fine leash walkers, but for taking care of business, we like going out in a fenced yard. (We'll come right back just as soon as we're done.) If you think it might be fun to adopt one dog, imagine how great it would be to have BOTH of us distinguished gentlemen in your life. You'll be over the moon, and so will we!

    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). Want to go for a walk? Addie does! This sweet 8-year-old girl has such a friendly, outgoing personality and really enjoys getting out and making new friends in the neighborhood. Addie has recently been the companion of a less active older person, so she’s a little out of shape and a little plump at 25 lbs., but in the past she was an enthusiastic jogging partner and enjoyed trips to the dog park. Addie says she could shed those extra pounds in no time with a little help and would love to get back to a more active lifestyle. Addie is house-trained and well-behaved in the home. She does bark when she is excited but will generally quiet down when asked to. She enjoys attention and snuggles, but she does not appreciate rough handling, squeezing, or hugging. She will nip if pressured, so any children should be old enough to be respectful and gentle. Addie has never lived with another dog but seems to get along with most. At the dog park she preferred playing with the bigger dogs. This companionable and easygoing sweetheart would be comfortable in almost any environment as long as she was loved and pampered and given plenty of opportunity for neighborhood walks or other outdoor exercise. She promises everything you do together will be fun. You can see more photos of Addie at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/addie .

    Breed: Rat Terrier
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). Captain is an adorable 5-year-old, 24 lb. Rat Terrier with a great love of outdoor adventures. He enjoys boating in his kayak and going on long hikes with his humans. At home he can usually be found in the backyard hunting the mighty lizard. Captain is house-trained and knows how to use a dog door. He rides well in the car and enjoys going to the dog park. He gets along with the other dogs there when he is free to roam off leash, but on leash he can react defensively. He currently lives with a cat and mostly ignores her. With strangers, Captain is very timid and frightens easily. He barks, and when he feels really threatened he will growl to signal he is uncomfortable, but he has never bitten anyone. For this reason though, Captain would do best in a home without kids, especially those younger than school age who might not understand or heed his warnings, or older kids who have lots of friends coming and going as that would be very stressful for him. Captain is accustomed to sleeping in bed with his people and he likes to cuddle and snuggle. He doesn't like to be alone, but does ok if confined to a restricted area when no one is home. Captain would love to find a First Mate who shares his love of the outdoors, enjoys lots of one-on-one time, and who would protect him from any scary people out there. Do you fit the job?

    rescue
    Breed: Rat Terrier
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier. Zhorbit is a 10-year-old 15-lb. Rat Terrier, who has been in foster care for seven years because of residual issues from her original home where she was neglected, not socialized or trained, and very likely abused. As a result, she is a fearful dog when she is out of her comfort zone and she exhibits typical fear responses that she will never unlearn. The key to living with Zhorbit is to earn her trust and reinforce her positive behaviors. Her foster parents have worked extensively on this goal with excellent results. Zhorbit has taken classes that included basic obedience, agility, and nose work, and each new skill has improved her confidence. When the people around her are sensitive to her stressors and triggers, Zhorbit is happy, relaxed, playful, and obedient. In fact, she is a funny dog who will entertain you will her silly antics! She is not a fan of cats, and while she gets along with other small dogs, she would not do well in a multidog household and probably would be happiest as an only dog. Zhorbit is house-trained and will bark to be let out. She is afraid of crates, but no problem--she can be left loose in the house for many hours at a time without having accidents or getting into mischief. Zhorbit enjoys daily walks for exercise and also likes to snuggle up to her favorite human for quiet time. 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. Due to Zhorbit’s fear issues, she cannot be adopted to a family with young children. 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.
