Hello :) I adopted my furry friend from a rescue center about 3 weeks ago where I was told he was a rat terrier but I'm really not 100% sure...he looks to be more of a jack russel terrier or even another mix, any thoughts?
Her muzzle/nose/mouth look kinda like my Miniature Pinschers. Even her ears look like my MinPins when she has them down. Maybe she is mixed with that? I had a Rat Terrier before, he was mostly white and the muzzle looked diffrent.
He is definitely a cute mix and all the ideas so far are good possibilities. To me he looks like a toy fox terrier X rat terrier OR minpin.
There are two types of rat terriers, specified as Type A and Type B. I believe it is the type A that looks VERY much like a minpin, while the Type B looks more like a fox terrier in body shape, a bit shorter legged, etc. The breed is recognized by the United Kennel Club and will likely receive breed recognition by AKC in the next few years.
