Our little rat terrier is the best dog I have ever been around or owned in my entire life. Eager to learn throughout his entire life even as a 4 year old (current age). My fiance and I led an extremely active lifestyle prior to the birth of our son. This dog could sprint up and down 100 ft incline faster than we could hike 1/8 of the hill.. yet even now my son is almost 2, and we are substantially less active than we once were and he still fits right in. He loves our son like his own brother, has never snapped (even when our son may have deserved it), and knows more of the english language than many children around age 5. To give you an idea of his dedication to me and my hubby, he once helped me herd and catch a white lab rat that was loose near our home without hurting it in the slightest. (I am a big softie and didn't want the rat to freeze during the winter, since it clearly was not wild). He listened to my every command and helped me get it into my pocket. They're amazing animals.
