About Rat Terriers

Maybe we are partial, but we feel that Rat Terriers are the perfect breed. They combine the perfect mix of high energy, fun and play with the ability to take it down a notch and be perfect lap dogs watching TV with you.

Rat Terriers have the advantage of being smaller so they are easy to care for and travel with. At the same time they are not “Foo-foo” but are all dog. You will never find a more loyal companion.

If you are totally new to the breed, or just like seeing Ratties, this video is a great starting place. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KkNWUuWq_I&fbclid=IwAR3_139PuAH9x3Qn-w-QJzwpnYU6qIhO6IJTtOt9L-wxeVXEKOu4FVP16es
