Is the Boston Terrier / Rat Terrier (Miniature) Mix right for you?

Species group:

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Brat is a cross between a pure Boston Terrier and a pure Rat Terrier, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This so-called designer hybrid is intended to create a lively companion for active families. However, in an attempt to get an even smaller version, some breeders may use a Miniature Rat Terrier in the cross instead.

Appearance / health:
All mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, and some Boston Terrier / Rat Terrier (Miniature) Mixes look more like the Mini Rat Terrier while others lean toward the Boston Terrier side of the family tree.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog-- and the easy-going Boston Terrier parent is not a true terrier-- you had better be prepared for the energy of the Rat Terrier side of the family. These social animals need to be involved in their family's life. A neglected or lonely dog could become destructive.
