The Rat Terrier is a dog breed that originated in the United States. Rat Terriers were developed from a number of different terrier breeds including, but not limited to, the Manchester Terrier, Fox Terrier and Bull Terrier. Bred as a farm dog and hunter of vermin and other pests, they were common on farms throughout the United States in the 1920s and 1930s. It is said the former President Teddy Roosevelt gave the Rat Terrier its name after one wiped out the rat population at the White House. Rat Terriers are diggers and escape artists. They are cute, funny, and energetic. Despite being stubborn, they are intelligent and easy to train giving the proper technique. Rat Terriers are patient with children and they get along well with other dogs.
