Although often mistaken for a Jack Russell Terrier, the Rat Terrier has a different profile
and a very different temperament. Rat Terriers are sleeker in musculature, finer of bone,
and have a more refined head. They always have a short single coat, i.e., they are never
wire coated.

Rat Terriers tend to be less aggressive than Jack Russells; while they have a definite
terrier personality they also have an "off switch" and love lounging on the sofa in a lap as
much as tearing about the yard. Rat Terriers are normally cheerful dogs, and they tend to
be calmer and more sensitive than Jack Russells to changes in their environment,
owner's moods, or to unexpected noises, people, and activities. The "social sensitivity" of
Rat Terriers makes them very trainable and easier to live with for the average pet owner,
but it also means that extensive socialization from an early age is critical. Proper
socialization of a Rat Terrier puppy includes exposing the animal to a wide variety of
people and places, particularly during the first three months of life. Like most active and
intelligent breeds, Rat Terriers tend to be happier when they receive a great deal of
mental stimulation and exercise.
RAT TERRIER
Bolder than the average terrier, the Rat Terrier has
earned the name "Feist" due to his reputation as a
fearless, tenacious hunter. His proud owners know
that he is also a devoted friend and companion,
fiercely devoted to all in his home, including
children, other dogs and even cats. For such a
small dog, the Rat Terrier is a muscular, active dog,
capable of a day’s work on the farm and able to
keep up with the most energetic of owners, always
delighted to be included in the family’s activities.

This Special Limited Edition is the only book of its
kind dedicated to this remarkable terrier, a
comprehensive, colorful guide that covers the
breed’s development in Britain and rise to fame in
America, characteristics and breed standard.
Author Alice J. Kane also discusses the health
care, obedience training, housebreaking and
behavior of the breed. Written with both the pet
owner and breed fancier in mind, this
comprehensive edition promises to be an
invaluable resource for all admirers of this
charming and lovable pure-bred dog.
