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.
another chihuahua or a rat terrier (full blooded) rat terrier only.
I don't see how it concerns the chihuahua
a border terrier. i think. or a rat collie!
They were'NT bred together. tHe Boston Terrier is a mix of a English Bulldog and A White Terrier. Not a Rat Terrier.
No because the Rat Terrier is to little. It is without forces still.
Jack Russells are a very good dog to mix breed. That is why there are many crosses between other breeds and Jack Russell Terriers. Some common mixes include: Westie/ Jack Russell Jack Russell/ Fox Terrier Mix Jack Russell/ Maltese Mix Jack Russell/ Australian Shepherd Mix Jack Russell/ Dalmatian Mix Jackapoo - Jack Russell Poodle Mix Jackabee - Beagle Jack Russell Australian Terrier/ Jack Russell Terrier Mix Jack Chi - Jack Russell Chihuahua Mix Jack Rat Terrier - Jack Russell Rat Terrier Mix Jack Russell Boston Terrier Mix Shih Tzu Jack Russell Terrier Mix
My Shih tzu / Rat terrier mix, Jackson, weighed between 12 & 13 lbs. In his prime. He had long legs like the Rat terrier. Broken coated hair grew much slower than Shih tzu. Best dog ever. I loved my little Jackson Boy!
It is a mix breed of Pug and Rat Terrier I have one and she is the sweetes thing!They have also proven to have less health problems then a puggle.
My suggestion is to take a DNA test at the vet to be sure.
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.
I have 2 beautiful miniature black rat terriers that I found in two different animal shelters in Calif. One came from a Northern CA shelter, the other from a Southern/Central Calif. shelter. One was described as a chihuahua mix, the other a purebred chihuahua. Neither has much chihuahua, and are clearly rat terrier. I think rat terriers come from all states, but probably are more prevalent in those states with ranches or farms.
