Frequently kept as pets by both the impoverished and well-to-do, these small dogs were originally bred to hunt the rats and other vermin. They are intelligent and extremely loyal, working well as both trained hunters and family pets. They stand up to 16 inches tall and usually weigh around 14 pounds.
