Jack Russell Terrier - part of my shelter series kaelyn michaels photography
The Rat Terrier originated by crossing numerous breeds including the old Fox Terrier, European Terriers and the Old English White Terrier. Teddy Roosevelt named this dog. This breed is hard working and known for its excellent ratting skills. One story says that a single Rat Terrier killed more than 2,501 rats in only seven hours in a barn overrun with rats.
