Welcome to Blackwood Rat Terriers. I was first introduced to this wonderful breed back in 2003 and I fell in love with their intelligence and loyalty. This is when I picked up my first Rat Terrier from a breeder in Texas. I started showing back in 2009 and I have been breeding since 2013. We test all our Rat Terriers for PLL, PRA-PRCD, patella and cardiac at the minimum prior to breeding to ensure we do our best to not pass along affected or unsound Rat Terriers. We breed to the American Kennel Club (AKC) and United Kennel Club (UKC) breed standards and breed primarily for "standard" sized Rat Terriers, however we have produced some miniatures. Our goal is to produce healthy, well-tempered dogs that conform to the breed standard, are biddable with a great hunt drive. Our dogs are American Kennel Club (AKC) and United Kennel Club (UKC) registered, and excel at hunting, conformation and performance events. We do not believe in breeding purely to produce puppies, but in breeding to better the breed one litter at a time. All our dogs and litters are raised in our home, raised as part of our family and are not kenneled outside. We do NOT breed Merle and we do not have dilutes in our program but our lines may carry dilute. We consider ourselves a small hobby breeder and may have one to three litters a year.
