Colorado Hills Rat Terriers

I hope you enjoy the peek into our lives through our pictures.

I've never known a time without dogs in my life.

Daddy raised and trained bird dogs and Mama raised poodles when I was young. Throughout the years, we had many different breeds, including a basenji, pointers, a Belgian shepherd, a labrador, poodles and a very smart schnauzer. All of them were special in their own ways. When I was 8 years old, my older brother brought a dog training book home from the school library. I was hooked! I started training any dog I could get a hold of. I got my first Rat Terrier from my Mama in 1991. I've been in love with the breed ever since.

I've been involved in AKC, UKC and NADAC agility since 2000, in UKC conformation since 2003, and in AKC conformation since 2010. We started competing in Rally Obedience in 2009, and in formal obedience in 2013. With the help of several really talented dogs, I've managed to put over 110 titles on them. We show and compete mostly in the Southern states, but occasionally make trips to meet other people across the country.

I am a dog lover, owner and trainer above all else.

But, occasionally, I will have a litter of puppies. Each litter has been planned well in advance... sometimes up to three or four years in advance.

If you are interested in a puppy from one of my girls, please feel free to email me at

Current Standings:

Sally Skull was called the "Scariest Siren in Texas". Sally was known throughout Texas as a woman who could shoot, trade horses, ride, and lasso as good as any man. Better. She could shoot flawlessly, ride like a man, and cuss like a muleskinner. She also loved dancing and draw poker. Most of all, Sally loved men. She had a total of five husband-notches in her gun belt, all of whom felt her dominance. “Dogmatic and determined, she possessed so much strength that none of her husbands could stand living with her for very long.” She reportedly killed them when she was tired of them. Not only was she adept at using the six-shooters in the cartridge belt on her hips (French pistols hidden beneath her skirts, when she wore skirts), she carried a rifle and was as good a sharpshooter as Annie Oakley, long before Annie was born. One of her businesses was  freighting cotton by wagon train to Mexico in exchange for guns, ammunition, medicines, coffee, shoes, clothing, and other goods vital to the Confederacy. She had a reputation of ruthlessness and of ruling the armed trail hands with the crack of her whip, fueled by a hasty and nasty temper. Nonetheless, the trail hands (teamsters) developed a healthy respect for such a woman who knew so many cuss words, the type of words that would “scald the hide off a dog.”
