Rosethorn Rat Terriers
Welcome to Rosethorn Rat Terriers. Home of UKC and AKC Registered American Rat Terriers. In the picture above are brother and sister Champion Rosethorn Almighty Shogun (left) and Champion Rosethorn Saint Vitus Dance (right). Shogun is currently standing at stud here at Rosethorn Terriers. He began his show career fall 2012 and became a Champion in one weekend of winning. Sister Sidney became a Champion summer of 2012 finishing at the Washington Classic.  We are located in Coulterville, California on five acres nestled in the gold country foothills near Yosemite National Park.  I have been a terrier breeder for over 25 years. My goal is to raise dogs that are beautiful to look at and a joy to live with. I'm all about great temperament and supreme health for my dogs and their offspring. Rosethorn Terriers breeding dogs each individually embody the excellent qualities of the Rat Terrier breed. Our terriers define correct conformation, athletic ability, dedication and loyalty to their owners and joyous health. All Rosethorn Terriers and  pups are home raised, loved and played with everyday.   Each puppy comes with up to date shots, worming and a two year health guarantee.   Let our Champions be your companion. Come on up and take a look. You'll be glad you did. We are committed to eradicating Primary Luxating Lens disease from the Rat Terrier breed **ALL ROSETHORN TERRIER BREEDING DOGS ARE PLL CLEAR.** I am always happy to answer questions about Rosethorn Terriers and the American Rat Terrier Breed.

The KEYS Litter
2. The KEYS Litter 
Welcome to the world Ebony and Ivory, born 2-21-2015.  My oh so handsome Rosethorn Cupid's Arrow has fathered a litter of two boys with Catch Me CalVal Saving Grace aka Gretchen. The boys, EBONY is available and IVORY (sold to the McKenzies' of Elk Grove) are black and white bi-color, like their handsome father. I had requests this last year for a pup with a full tail.  Although it is not the standard of the breed currently, I chose to leave Ebony with a full tail and just removed his dewclaws. Ivory has had tail and dew claws done.  The 'KEYS' boys available for $700 are UKC registered . A deposit will hold EBONY or IVORY until they are ready to go home at 8 weeks. 209-743-1664 or rosethornterriers@hotmail.com  to talk about these new Rosethorn Rat Terrier babies.
