Is the Rat Terrier / Shih Tzu Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Ratshi Terrier

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 Ratshi Terrier is a cross between a pure Rat Terrier and a pure Shih Tzu, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix.

Appearance / health:
Expect a smallish dog, but all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, and even puppies from the same litter of RatShi Terriers can look different from each other.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, some owners have reported that their Ratshi Terriers are devoted little dogs who aren't as hyper as some Rat Terriers. They can reflect their owner's energy, so they're ready to chill as well as go all-out, depending on the family's mood.
