How can you tell a boy rat from a girl rat?

Boy rats have large testicles at the base of their tail, it will be obvious because the testes are not covered with fur. The sacs are about the size of a peanut when the rat is fully grown, but will still be visible when very young.

just look at the bottom of there stomach near the rear!!! :)

Lift up the tail if theirs a ball sack that usually means its a boy

How do you bob rat terrier tails?

Tail bobbing should only be done by a licensed vet, since it is major surgery. Both skin and bone needs to be cut, and the skin stitched to cover the wound.

Tail bobbing is loosing popularity in the United States, but is still required by many breed standards. Some rat terrier puppies are born with bobbed tails. Mine was!

Do Rat terriers shed their fur?

You can stuff a pillow with all the hair that comes off a Rat. They shed throughout the year. I have two, one will a gorgeous, full coat and the other a piebald cow-marked. The full-coated one is responsible for every surface in my home being covered in dog hair. The piebald one is almost as bad, but her hairs are so short that they are not a problem. My wool coats, my sofas, my beds. Furniture that has to be dusted every other day to not show hair. I have a large dust mop that picks up enough hair to knit a sweater every couple of days. I have hair catchers in the drains, a Dyson vacuum that earns its keep, and a dryer lint screen that looks like I put the dog in the dryer every time I clean it. In short, yes, Rats shed mercilessly.
