VetStreet.com: 14 Dog Breeds You've Never Heard Of (but Will Soon)

Rat Terrier

The all-purpose Rat Terrier can proudly claim to be made in the USA. Her popularity soared in the early twentieth century on American farms, where she hunted small game and killed rats and other vermin. She comes in miniature and standard sizes, and is a blend of Smooth Fox Terrier, Greyhound and Beagle, among other breeds. This dog is silly, fearless and vocal, and is known to be calmer than other terrier breeds. One of her famous fans was President Theodore Roosevelt. But if she's bored, a Rat Terrier can easily tear up a home as majestic as the White House. Engage this agile and athletic dog in constant games, exercise and training, and she'll learn to mind her manners.
