Betty female

2017-05-14

Location: Florida

Our beautiful Betty comes to us from a farm in South Florida. A group of Rat Terriers were living outside, and the people wanted someone to get the dogs off the property. After arriving at her foster home, Betty was shy and withdrawn for the first 2 days, then she ventured out to explore and learn about inside living. Once Betty realized she was in for only good things now, she started to follow her fostermom around the house. Pregnant when she was rescued, Betty gave birth to 4 beautiful boys on May 9, 2017. After her babies are weaned, Betty will begin heartworm treatment (in July). She will be available for adoption sometime in the fall of 2017. You can find more pictures of Betty here in her album. Donations toward Betty's future vet care and expenses are graciously accepted here at this link.

Molly Brown female

2017-06-15

Location: Oklahoma

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Molly Brown Ratbone is unsinkable! She was rescued from a kill shelter in Oklahoma. Molly is between 7 and 10 years old (our vets says 7, the shelter said 10), and weighs only 9 pounds (she's a little pudgy). She has a half-tail with a little kink near the end - probably natural. Molly is tolerant of other dogs, and will even play with persistent ones, but it is obvious that she was once an only dog - and that's how she prefers things; she tries to ignore the kitties in her foster home. We have not had her around children, but with her timid nature we feel that Molly would be happiest in an adults only home. Shortly after her arrival, Molly had a dental, so her teeth are healthy and clean. This little girl is crate trained, house broken, and very sweet and loving. She would be the perfect partner for a single person or a couple who loves to read, watch TV, and putter around the yard. You can see more pictures of our Molly Brown here in her photo album.

Dollie female

2017-06-11

Location: Florida

Dollie has come so far! She is one of the Rat Terriers we took in from a farm in Loxahatchee, FL where the dogs were all living outside. Her former owners gave none of the dogs vaccines or vet care. Dollie is the first blue & white Rattie puppy our fostermoms in Florida have had the joy of taking care of! Our Dollie was VERY shy when she and her family were caught and brought into Ratbone Rescues, but she has learned to integrate well with a house chocked full of doggies and kitties! She quite enjoys the luxury of sleeping in an air conditioned room on a bed soft bed with her fostermom! Dollie LOVES to wrestle and play before night night - and then she happily tucks herself in against a leg, arm or on the pillow to catch some Z's. Dollie is crate trained, but being a young puppy (only 4 months old), she should be allowed to have a mid-day/lunch potty break. Dollie loves toys and is a real joy to have around, though she can still be shy with new people and new pets - but she has learned that people are A-OK, and especially if they have a tasty treat in their hands! We'd like Dollie to have at least 1 playful (non-aggressive) doggie companion to play with in her adoptive home, as she is used to having other dogs to interact with since she was a baby.

Lani female

2014-07-30

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Lani is short for Solana, which is a Native American word for sunshine. Itís the perfect name for a gal who loves to lay by the pool and nap in the sun. While retired and living in Florida now, Laniís beginnings were quite different. Through research we have found that she is the result of the breeding of two NRTA foundation stock Rat Terriers. Her bloodline is 71.87% Decker. Her dam is Sycamore Flats Jackie and her sire is Sycamore Flats Tuffy. Lani was born 4/26/03, is 17.5 inches at the withers, and a skinny 25 pounds. She is sweet and gentle. Lani gets along well with her foster siblings but has been unsuccessful at getting them to play with her. She is a finicky eater, and requires a grain free diet to avoid skin irritation. During Lani's first couple of months in foster care she lived with cats and wanted to chase them, but she did not harm them. More photos of Lani are available here.

Harley female

2017-05-14

Adoption Pending!

CongRATs to the Brantly family!

Location: Florida

This is an affectionate, lively and inquisitive youngster. Harley likes to gather all the toys in the house around her wherever she may be. She also enjoys chasing lizards in the back yard. Once introduced to the doggy door, and observing how the other resident dogs used it, Harley slips through it like she always knew how. Harley snuggles in the big bed all night long; she's a real love bug. Ideally, we would like to see her in a home with another young playful dog, as she tries to engage the older dogs at her foster home in play, but they're not interested. Harley does okay with cats, as long as they stand their ground; if they get startled and run, then of course she will chase them. Harley is about 1 year old, and weighs around 9 pounds. Her foster family says "all in all, Harley is a joy to have in our household". To see more pictures of Harley, please click this link.
