*Puppies can be reserved before they are born. Some puppies are born with natural bob tails and some with full tails. We do not crop tails unless it is requested within 3 days of birth. Tails can also be cropped at time of spay or neutering.
We have pure breed Rat Terrier puppies for sale. We ONLY breed Rat Terriers. Our main concern is the genetic health history and temperament specific to the breed. Rat terriers in general are from mixed breeds and they have less health problems if bred properly. Your Vet bills will be minimal as they are low maintenance dogs. In addition, our dogs lines have been tested and are PLL clear (Eye disease). We do not have time to show our dogs but they are all "our" champions. We have different sizes, colors and some are stockier than others. Some have gone on to be show dogs. We do not hold back any dogs for show. They are all high quality dogs. You will not find our dogs in any "puppy store", "puppy broker" or "online breeders club" or "online breeders store" as these puppies are usually shipped from wholesale breeders (Puppy mills-unhealthy puppy factory). They sell more than one breed and some are just extensions of puppy stores posing as breeders. Do not be fooled by this commercial industry. Reputable breeders do not sell to these places even though they may be registered. We do not treat our dogs as livestock and we do not ship puppies. Shipping puppies can be fatal and affect their well-being. Some people stay in a local hotel to pick up their puppies. We are not far from Ferries (Cross sound or Port Jefferson) You can also call for special arrangements.
You can be sure your puppy has been well taken care of on a 24-7hr basis. This is a business built on the love of the breed. You will know exactly where your puppy was bred and raised and they are all handled with personal care. We have tracked and recorded our Rat Terrier health history lines for over 25years with 6 generations of pedigree, and that can only be done by using one registry. We use Coefficient Calculations of our dogs to further protect our puppies from the risk of defects and genetic health illnesses.We guarantee that our breeding dogs are in good health and have no genetic defects or any illnesses. We tell you the truth about these dogs by temperament and size to the best of our knowledge. Our adult dogs are on the bottom of this page and we love them all. Rat terriers are fun, athletic, loyal, intelligent and lovable. They are always happy to see you and will bring you much happiness. Our focus is on the long-term health of our dogs, not attractive advertising puppy packages. Vaccinations, wormers, love and attention are all they need. We have over 300 happy owners from all over the United States, spanning over 10 yrs. with many References available.
I am happy to say that I have been the Vice president of the National Rat Terrier Association since 2014 helping the Association to be the best Rat Terrier registry.
