CAL VAL'S BIG SURPRIZE (3/9/16)|
| ZSA ZSA was pregnant. |
Then she wasn't.
Then she started getting milk 2 days before her due date
...but no puppies felt.
False pregnancy we wisely thought.
MEET SOLO - 5.5 ounce Rat Terrier Female puppy
It's nice to know that there are still wonderful surprizes
after over 20 years of Breeding Rat Terriers.

with us for breeding. None of us are in competition with each other. We try to help each other in our breeding choices....always with an eye to creating better and better Rat Terriers.
Other Hobby Breeders will understand the wisdom in this. More then one intact male sets up
competitive stress for the dogs and that stresses out us humans! humans.
REGIS sires litters for us as well as outside selected females.
ALL of our MALES and FEMALES are PLL CLEAR!
GAILS RAT TERRIERS FROM THE PAST (January 3, 2002)|
|ALBUM UPDATED 1/28/09|
SINCE THE EARLY 1900'S MY FAMILY HAS BEEN LOVING AND RAISING RAT TERRIERS. HERE YOU CAN SEE THE PHOTOS OF MY GRANDPARENTS, MY MOTHER, MY UNCLE AND THE RAT TERRIERS THEY RAISED WHO WERE SO MUCH A PART OF THE FAMILY. THEY CALLED THEM "TOY FOX TERRIERS" BUT YOU CAN SEE THEY ARE NOT THE SMALL TFT OF TODAY. THEY WERE LATER CALLED RAT TERRIERS BY PRESEIDENT TEDDY ROOSEVELT AND THAT BECAME THEIR OFFICIAL NAME SHORTLY THEREAFTER.
THEY ARE REMARKABLY SMART, LOYAL, FUN AND VERSATILE DOGS WHO WILL WAG THEIR WAY INTO YOUR HEART AND BE YOUR BEST FRIEND FOR LIFE.
WE SHOW AND CHAMPION AND GRAND CHAMPION OUR DOGS TO VALIDATE THEIR QUALITY BUT MOST OF OUR PUPS GO TO FAMILIES WHO JUST WANT A WONDERFUL PET, WHICH IS FINE WITH US.
IF YOU ARE GOING TO BUY A PUREBRED REGISTERED DOG, WHY NOT BUY QUALITY?
If you have any questions about our current Rat Terriers or just want to talk dogs... email me at GRINAVERE@AOL.COM

We moved to the mountains in APRIL of 2008. We are surrounded by tall pine trees and clean fresh air. We are at 3,000 ft elevation so we do get some snow each winter...just enough to be decorative but not a hardship.
WE LOVE IT HERE... who wouldn't?
Each year we add improvements to the home and yard is a work in progress. I'll try to get updtaed photos with each new change

UKC GR CH CHAOS (August 21, 2003)|
CHOAS came to us a as a fat puppy from Patty Cromer of Maxwells Rats in Alabama many years ago and our life has never been the same.
This sweet suhthun boy won my heart and knocked our sox off in the show ring. CHAOS was the first dog that I truly considered my OWN and my HEART DOG. He taught me how to show dogs as he was a natural and I was a Newbie.
Not only did I acquire my canine heart throb, I also acquired a great friend in Patty.
CHAOS's parents are:
MAXWELL'S FULL OF TROUBLE
and MAXWELL'S MISSY
He is a UKC Grand Champion and one of his daughter's was the 2002 #1 TOP TEN Rat Terrier in the Nation in show points.
CHAOS has several Champion and Grand Champion offspring and grandoffspring now. Many have been in the Top Ten. He was the featured dog on the 2003 front cover of the Brown Trout Calendars for Rat Terriers and in the year 2004 he is the featured dog for the month of MAY.
SAD UPDATE: CHAOS was injured in September of 2005 and barely survived. He was left paralized. I spent the next 3 1/2 months trying to rehabilitate him enough that he could stand and walk again. That required expressing his bladder several times a day and sewing outfits for him to protect his legs from sores as he scooted across the house. We made some progress but he was never able to walk or stand. He was relatively happy but he really missed being outside and KING of the yard.
It was an emotional time for me and for my family. The Grandchildren were especially affected by this as he was dearly loved by all of them. On December 10, 2005, after much prayer and many family discussions, I let CHAOS go to his Heavenly Father. For months I could not talk about it or I would dissolve. I've never had the loss of a dog effect me so much. I missed my buddy and my friend. I appreciated all the kind words of condolences from those who loved my boy and who love me. It helped.
Most Sincerely, Gail

THERE ARE NO WORDS TO EXPRESS THE THRILL OF HAVING OUR DOGS FEATURED IN THIS WAY!!
They pick the photos without any influence from us! Really!
GIRDY ROTTEN SCOUNDREL GETS HER NAME (August 21, 2003)|
|ALBUM UPDATED 1/28/09|
Every once in a while you keep a puppy who has the appearance of a total sweetheart. Then, they turn into a rip-snortin' package of trouble, wrapped up in a cute package.
Such is the case with Miss CAL VAL GIRDY ROTTEN SCOUNDREL and this is how she got her name.
GIRDY IS AN ADULT NOW AND A DELIGHTFUL PET TO A WONDERFUL FAMILY. I'VE NEVER HAD A PUPPY QUITE LIKE HER.

PICABO is in her NEW HOME |
|THE STORY OF PICABO (UPDATE 2/9/13)|
PICABO is now in her new home. Jim and Mary have 11, 12, and 13 yr old Rat Terrier females that they purchased from us years ago. PICABO is the new "BABY" of the Family. They are thrilled and so are we!
PICABO was a scrawny, tiny, ugly 2 3/4 oz puppy when she was born. I was sure she wouldn't survive. Yes, she WAS ugly. I tube fed her a few times that day and kept her warm but didn't expect her to live through the night. She had other plans. I tube fed her a few more times the next day and saw her latch on a few times. She was always very squirmy when I picked her up. After a few days we realized her mother was setting her aside and nursing her alone. Rat Terriers are SO SMART!
PICABO has no future in the show ring!! You might say she was an embarrassment out of two Grand Champion parents. Her littermates were 3 times her size. It was a great stroke of luck that her GRANDDAM GRCH HALO had lost a singleton puppy at birth and was eager to mother a puppy. Picabo was 4 weeks old when her littermates started to wean. She needed to keep nursing. HALO was more than happy to adopt her and continue to nurse her until she was 3 1/2 months old! HALO adored her adopted daughter and mothered her with such affection. HALO licked and caressed her and played with her nonstop. PICABO thrived on all the attention.
PICABO was examined by our vet at age 3 months old and declared HEALTHY despite her size. Good heart, good lungs, and nice, tight patellas. Her overbite and narrow muzzle does not effect her eating. We know she looks more like a Chihuahua than a Rat Terrier but she is full blooded RAT TERRIER. She has the cutest personality. Full of Fun and Vinegar and yet still very affectionate.
She also has the cutest SMIRK!!
