it all depends on the genetics; the dog can pick up more genetics from one breed than the other. it is said that a rat-cha can get up to 3 times the size of a standard chihuahua; but it will also be smaller than a standard rat terrier which isn't very big. under 15lbs sounds about right. i have a rat-cha myself, and she is 3/4 chihuahua and 1/4 rat terrier. she weighs 5lbs as an adult but she has more chihuahua in her than rat terrier, so that will matter too.
S well, i think i know what you mean, a smooth rat terrier, has hair, short smooth hair, and a rat terrier tho people call the breed that no matther what the hair is like :P but i think the 'rat terrier' is completey hairless, also called the american hairless terrier, they were breed from a mutation from a normal rat terrier who had hairless pups, they are cute for a hairless dog :) but they are rare and no rat terrier has long even remotly long hair.
Yes, a Rat Terrier has real hair. There is a hairless UKC breed related to the Rat Terrier called the American Hairless Terrier; however Rat Terriers do indeed have real hair.
They were'NT bred together. tHe Boston Terrier is a mix of a English Bulldog and A White Terrier. Not a Rat Terrier.
it really all depends on which role the dogs body takes on, either blue heeler or rat terrier..and rat terriers come in three sizes..so its hard to tell until they are 6 months

Well... I have a Rat terrier and a Rat terrier is a Mix between a Jack Russell and a Fox Terrier, RT have longer legs than those of Jack R. but they have the same "body type". Jack R.s have a stuby tale and Rat T.s do not. Rat terriers are their own breed, not a mix. They are taller and leaner than Jack Russels, and have an "off switch". Most rat terriers do have docked tails, although there are some with long tails.
