The Rat Terrier is an American breed that originated from a mixture of crosses by European immigrants in the late 19th century old time Fox Terriers and other European Terriers. They were common on American family farms in the 1920s and 1930s. Click for more about Rat Terriers

A Rat Terrier available for adoption from New Rattitude.

Dooley is the complete package--loving, attentive, well-mannered, house-trained, and crate trained. And why shouldn't he be? He's had 9-1/2 years to perfect his greatness. He loves to snuggle and to be caressed and petted, and he has a sweet, calm personality that makes him a great lap dog. Dooley's also a happy, gleeful boy who'll delight you with his occasional bursts of joyous play and outdoor "rattie runs" that proclaim life is great. We don’t believe Dooley has ever met a stranger as he is almost immediately friendly to everyone he meets, including other dogs and children who interact politely with dogs. He currently weighs 17-1/2 lbs. but is working to get to his ideal weight of 15 lbs. This dapper, intelligent fellow lives to love and please his human. In order to fulfill that purpose, though, he needs someone to love. Won't you consider becoming Dooley's human?
