Rat Terrier
The Rat Terrier is an American dog breed with a rich and varied background as an all-around farm dog and hunting companion. Traditionally more of a type than a breed, they share much ancestry with the tough little mixed-breed dogs known as feists. Several private associations have maintained Rat Terrier registries for some decades, but more recently there have been movements to obtain breed recognition by the major canine organizations.

      August 17, 2013 @ 11:35 PM Happy Happy HAPPY birthday Todd. You are love, admired and appreciated more than you know and by more than you know! You are a gift in many ways there is not enough room here to recount. We are all blessed more because you are in our lives - and we are for certain greatly enriched.

      July 15, 2013 @ 8:45 PM Here are examples of TWO European Import Doberamann's. (European's no longer call them Doberman Pinschers, but use the name of their creator Herr Dobermann instead) ;)

      July 16, 2013 @ 6:57 AM No kidding. What an interesting fact. So they would say that they have Herr Dobermanns? See, that's the kind of fascinating information that's so great to learn from someone who studies and knows a breed so well.

      July 15, 2013 @ 8:41 PM These two are gorgeous! Doberman's were far more popular in the 1970's than they are now! Sadly the breed has declined in popularity do to breed specific legislation that has labelled them a 'dangerous dog breed'... this BSL is a BAD thing! So now a breed that is really a love bug is maligned and people no longer choose them as often! Its shame! Dobies are awesome family dogs and huge lap dogs and couch potato's!

      May 14, 2013 @ 8:36 PM Hey Toni you should share Pedegru with the breeder of Rhett…I’m sure they would appreciate this topic and hopefully want to share some pictures of the other wonderful dog they’ve bred.

      June 7, 2013 @ 6:09 PM Any update on this story Todd? Wonderful to hear about these groups. Looking forward to being part of one again sometime soon.

      June 5, 2013 @ 7:26 AM Emily, is there any kind of update on this? The most concerning aspect of this is that the AKC is not taking more of a stand. Why wouldn't they be in favor of supporting healthy breeding standards when to my thinking this protects the breeds almost more than anything. I'm very disappointed that they make a substantial living from dogs and don't want to draw a firm line in the sand about how they're bred

      June 5, 2013 @ 7:27 AM I definitely feel we ought to all make a special point to write them about this - one letter is considered to reflect 1000 opinions...so writing does definitely help

      May 14, 2013 @ 6:44 PM Why can't more advertisements be more positive like this one? Yeah, there is? a dark side but showing animals suffering and in slow motion just make people shut down. There needs to be more of these. I think more people would be more moved to donate and help.

      May 14, 2013 @ 5:55 PM Whats really sad as well, is law enforcements? hands are tide because as the deputy stated there are no laws against puppy mills. I can imagine how it must have hurt him to not be able to do what he wanted to do.

      May 14, 2013 @ 6:12 PM This is probably the most graphic video I have seen? of a puppy mill. Its disgusting. I want to do something to stop these. Why are they still legal?!?!?!?
