Patches's mom says: Patches is my adorable, exuberant, sweet, and loving rat terrier. She is almost four years old. I got her at a dog breeder and she was the calmest puppy in the litter of six. She was also the runt. When we got back to our house, she proved to us that she wasn't very calm all the time... She was bouncing off the walls! She is becoming an 'older' dog, but she doesn't really show it. She is still as crazy as ever! She even gets jealous if I start petting another dog. She runs up to me and gets in my face, so SHE gets all the attention! It is so funny! I love her to death.
