Oldie But Goodie
      Hi! I love your website! We have been searching for our little rat for a long time!  We wanted a puppy to add to our family and I had a long list of things that I thought a dog should be in order to best fit into our family.  As an adult I have had a Lab and a Golden Retriever, both very wonderful dogs; however, they require a lot of work bath wise, travel wise, hair patrol wise!  So, being a single mom doggy maintenance was definitely a consideration.  I thought about numerous breeds but ruled all out for a variety of reasons.  I wanted to adopt but couldn't be sure of ultimate size, coat etc. It then dawned on me that the dog of my youth was a wonderful pet!  She was a little dog that thought she was big!  Played like crazy when we played, hung out like a couch potato when that was called for, traveled easily with us everywhere we went! Now my mom said she was a toy fox terrier. I started surfing the web for those and found some breeders near my area.  The more I looked the more I realized she was different from tft's somehow. I remembered the name rat terrier in relationship to our little dog from somebody when I was a kid.  I looked that up on the net and there she was!  Then the search began in earnest! We found our little guy and will bring him home in one month! I will definitely  send a picture of "Isaac" with the kids when I get one, in the meantime I've sent one circa 1965 of me and "Buttons".  I thought you might get a kick out of a happy child returning to the happiness of her rat roots!
