  1. Hello from Rat Terrier Mix in Indiana

    Attention All New Members
    Hello, We adopted Sophie, a 14 month old female rat terrier mix about 1.5 months ago. She's amazing, wonderful, and we love her to pieces. We are pretty sure she has some pitbull in her, too.

    Attention All New Members
    My boyfriend and I recently adopted a puppy from a rescue. We were told she is a Chihuahua-Rat Terrier mix. Everyone who sees her says she looks like a Jack Russell. Is there any way to know for sure? I'm hoping she is RT rather than JRT because I have heard RT's are much easier to handle...
  9. Luxating Patella?

    Dog Health Questions

I never heard a yelp or any sign that he had hurt himself, but his gait is a little off (not really sure what is different though because it's so slight), and when he sits, he doesn't bend and tuck his leg as...
