This is Angel, he's from the Easter litter, born April 14, 2014 and is simply an amazing little boy.

I think he'll mature about 13 or so inches, 15 pounds and at this time might be a candidate for the show ring.

Pictures shown were taken August 10, so he's almost 4 months.

Now in southern California!!

Welcome to Wild Oak Rat Terriers, we're glad you stopped by and hope you enjoy our albums. We are a small breeder of Rat Terriers, located in Campo, California, that's East San Diego County in the high desert. We live on 93 acres, a fantastic place to raise dogs, with plenty of room to run, hunt and explore.

At Wild Oak we specialize in large mini's to small standards, emphasis on temperament, health, quality, conformation, structural correctness, beauty, brains and prey drive.

Our puppies are raised in the house, with cats, chickens and lots of socialization and love. When the pups are old enough to venture outside, we go for walks on the ranch with their Mom and they learn about lots of fun stuff!!  

They are very well adjusted, outgoing, happy and have strong self esteems.

We enjoy participating with our dogs in performance events and conformation competition.  A Rat Terrier’s main love in life is to be with their people, so they enjoy competing as well, pets first, show dogs second.  Rat Terriers are a hardy healthy breed, strong, active, happy and funny.  They are the ultimate family companion, happy to lay around all day, ready to go in an instant. They are very sensitive and easy to train, enjoy participating with their people, and are happiest when they’re with them.

Their tails are docked, dew claws removed, de-worming starts at 2 weeks of age, they are given their first immunization at 8 weeks. They are microchipped, and go to their forever homes with a Veterinarian exam, health guarantee and pedigree.

Our dogs are UKC and AKC registered.

We've made it!! Effective July 1, 2013, Rat Terriers have advanced in AKC from Miscellaneous to TERRIER GROUP!!!!! What does this mean to us? It means we can show in conformation at an AKC show in our designated Group!!

A million thanks to the people who have so diligently worked on this project, especially Pam Mills, it's her perserverance that has made it happen.

The Easter Litter, Julep/GRCH Trooper
4. The Easter Litter, Julep/GRCH Trooper  (March 9, 2014)

Click on the thumbnail to enter the album

We're in southern California, east San Diego County

We are excited about this litter, this pairing has produced some really nice puppies.  She's got a lovely topline and great angles, not to mention she's a super mover, Trooper has a great head, he's the total package.  We're hoping for puppies that are about 13" and 14-15 pounds, we thought we'd have black bi's and black tri's, but as they're growing a bit tan is getting more prevalent.

Trooper and Julep have dispositions and temperament to write home about, he's nurturing, loyal, cuddly, sweet and loves everybody. They're both "sleep on top of you kinda dogs", can't get enough love, can't express enough either. She's adorable, with the fastest moving tail in our pack, her prey drive beats all, the sweetest vicious little killer you can imagine.

Our puppies are AKC and UKC registered, tails docked and dewclaws removed at 3 days of age. They are microchipped, vaccinated and dewormed age appropriate.

Please check out Trooper and Julep's individual albums for more info.

1st born, 5:10 pm, female, "Bunny" aka "Piper" SOLD to  Sanders/Christenfeld family, Escondido, CA
2nd born, 6:20 pm, male, "Jelly Bean" SOLD to Jeanette and Rocky Bailey, Irvine, CA
3rd born, 6:28 pm, male, "Rejoice" SOLD to Sheridan and Gordon, San Francisco, CA
4th born, 7:50 pm, male, "Angel" Available

They are all black tri's, black, white and tan, their color and markings are very striking.

This litter, and all subsequent litters, will be dedicated to the memory of Gabby, our sweetheart angel dog. You left way too soon Gabbers, we had a lot of life to be lived together, RIP we love and miss you every day. Your joy, love and spirit lives on in your daughter Chevelle, she reminds us so much of you.

This is Porsche "what a dog" Littleton, she's our baby and our constant companion. During the day she gardens with her Mom (varmints beware) and is the CEO of the Rat Terrier Security Company. She enjoys exploring  and hunting with her dog family; Trooper, Libby, Chevelle, Julep, Churchill, Gypsy, aka the "Terrier Terrorists." She loves to go shopping at Home Depot and especially pet stores. She's the first out the door when it's time for an outing.

At night she is happy hanging out with her Mom, Dad and doggie family, sharing a bite of their dinner, watching a little TV and burrowing under the covers at bed time.

Porsche earned her AKC CD degree February 2006 and an AKC Rally Novice degree July 2010, it was lots of fun to compete with her in those events, she also earned her AKC CGC title, "Canine Good Citizen," and she certainly is just that.

Porsche's parents are T-Bone and Spring, thank you so much Deborah Bogart for this most awesome girl. She certainly started us on the right foot in Rat Terrier land.

January 28, 2006 Porsche debut Rat Terriers at the prestigious Golden Gate Kennel Club show at the Cow Palace in San Francisco. She was brilliant, got a first leg towards her CD degree and placed 4th too!! Two more legs were earned on February 26, thus earning her CD degree!! and are we ever proud of her!!

This is Our New Home
9. This is Our New Home  (September 30, 2011)

This is our new home, 93 acres in the high desert area of East San Diego County, Campo, California. There's a lot of work to be done on this property, mostly cleaning up the junk that was dumped here by the previous owner. Lt. John W. Finn, from 1958 to 2010. I use the term "junk" loosely as this would include some relics and antiques.  A lot of history goes along with this property, it's going to be fun and a challenge to make it our home.  

David will also be helping remodel the two story home, that's right up his alley, he loves doing that kind of work.

We were the Beverly Hillbillies making the final trip to Campo, with chickens, dogs, cats, fish and plants. I actually have a rocking chair to put in the bed of our truck but decided to ride inside in air conditioning, otherwise I could have rocked my way to our new home!

Here are the dogs that we have bred and/or own that have become
Champions and/or Grand Champions.  

It's with great pride that we share them with you. They truly are wonderful, great family companions, our babies, our best friends, our partners.

Many of the dogs we've raised are show quality and could win their championships easily. However, not all puppy homes are interested in showing, so those little "show dogs" are living up to their forever
family's expections, and are "winning" hearts and love every day.

I've really enjoyed searching for and finding Vintage/Antique pictures of Rat Terriers. Some of the dogs in these pics are surely Fox Terriers or Jack Russell Terriers, but close enough. Hope you enjoy and if you run across any artwork that's Rat Terrier/Terrier specific, I'd love to see it.

14. Miscellaneous Items of Interest  (August 20, 2007)

Everybody knows you should get your puppy from "a good breeder." But how can you tell who's a good breeder?  Raising good puppies makes some very specific demands, so there are signs, we'll call them traffic lights, that the careful buyer can spot.

Click here to learn "How to Recognize a Good Breeder"


There's so much to know about taking care of a puppy; there's also much to understand about training a puppy. How do you begin? You begin by first learning about what makes a puppy a puppy - what he needs, what he responds to, what he can do. This link then is your introduction to basic puppy.


Please click here to understand the stages of puppy development.


The great dog food debate- the good the bad and the ugly.  How does one choose?  If you follow television, you may believe that the companies that advertise there have foods full of tasty meat and chock full of great vitamins and minerals, but is it true?  Not so much. In the world of dog food it is buyer beware, yet the average person picking up a supermarket brand of dog food is unaware of the hazard.  This does not make them bad owners – they are simply uninformed owners.  Who knew you needed to research dog food more diligently than your own food?


Over the years many pet owners and Veterinarians have become concerned about the potentially harmful practice of annual vaccination. As immune disease, cancer and chronic disease in canines increases, new studies on the duration of immunity are being done.

All 27 veterinary schools in North America are in the process of changing their protocols for vaccinating dogs and cats. Those that are working for change have a long road ahead of them.

Old habits die hard; fortunately things are starting to change for the better thanks to a few dedicated Veterinarians and researchers who are willing to make a difference.

The Rainbow Bridge
17. The Rainbow Bridge  (June 15, 2007)

Dedicated to our loved ones who are waiting for us there,
we miss you very much and think of you everyday.

Just this side of heaven is a place called the Rainbow Bridge......

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
