Are you looking for a little friend who wants to watch TV with you, go on walks, AND kill rats in the barn? Well, let us introduce you to the Rat Terrier! This multi-purpose pup was made in America by immigrants from a slew of their favorite small terriers, beagles, whippets, and Italian greyhounds. Capable as ratters and guardians, they were the quintessential farm during the early 1900’s, performing a variety of barnyard tasks. They are lithe and athletic and their sleek coats come in a variety of colors. They are affectionate family pets, though tend to be wary of strangers. Rat Terriers take well to obedience training and agility, which helps to expend their vivacious, terrier energy. They shed once a year but otherwise require minimal brushing.
