Adopt a Rat Terrier
The Rat Terrier is a small terrier that is known for its intelligence and loving personality. They tend to make wonderful family pets. The Rat Terrier weighs around 12 to 35 pounds and stand between 14-23 inches tall. It is a very muscular dog for its size, and is very fast and active. Their coat is short, dense, and varies in color between white, mix, bi-color, etc.
The Rat Terrier is perfect for a family that wants a fast-paced pet. It loves to play with children and is very loyal to those it considers family. The Rat Terrier is also very curious, much like other terrier dogs, and loves to run around in a yard if it can.
The Rat Terrier requires a good amount of exercise, such as a daily walk or jog. It will do fine as an apartment dog, just as long as it receives an adequate amount of exercise. The Rat Terrier sheds slightly and requires occasional brushing to remove dead hairs.
