Rat Terrier

The Rat Terrier is an American breed descended from the terriers brought over by English miners and other working class immigrants. These terriers probably included crosses between the Smooth Fox Terrier, the Manchester Terrier and the now extinct white English Terrier.

The Rat Terrier is a muscular, active, small-to-medium hunting terrier. Colors are: black and white tri, black and white, tan, red, sable, blue, chocolate, lemon and apricot. Rat Terriers come in three sizes: Toy- 10 pounds and under 12 inches or less. Mini- 11-18 pounds, 13-15 inches. Standard- 18-28 pounds, 16-18 inches in height.
