Several times on this panel, folks have referred to Rat Terriers. I know nothing about them. If you have one, or know anything about them, please let me know. As you all know, breed websites NEVER say anything negative about a breed, or even neutral. I want the whole story on this breed, warts and all. Thanks.
I have owned several Rat Terriers and have tons of friends who own Rat T's. They are pretty much your typical terrier in personality most are scrappy and would take on a bear! All of them I've ever met were great pets. In looks they are kind of like a JRT, but usually they have longer legs and stand up ears. RT's are very smart dogs and are easy to train, but some are rather high energy. My RT Rodeo is kind of the exception when it comes to RT's though, she is very laid back and a chubby RT which is kind of unusual. She is the most obedient dog I've ever owned she would rather die than do something to make you mad. As for draw backs RT's are ratter's and like to dig up your yard and will try to whip your neighbor's Rottweiler while he is at it. But they are awesome dogs!
