The Rat Terrier is a well-muscled dog with a deep chest, strong shoulders, solid neck, and powerful legs, very inquisitive and lively. This affectionate dog makes an excellent companion for those who will enjoy an energetic, hyperactive dog. Rat Terriers are quick, very playful and they are not yappers.
Named by the perceptive Teddy Roosevelt, the Rat Terrier was developed in Great Britain and brought to the USA in 1890's. Life Magazine showed President Roosevelt with three black and tan Rat Terriers.
However, this magazine star is a hard-working farm hand. The Rat Terrier proved to be one of the best in the rat-baiting pits.

Measures of the miniature are: 4(4,5) x 4(4,5) cm. Small differences in measures are possible, because of 100 % hand making process.
The main technique for performance the figurine is lampworking, which requires special masterly and artistism, because every detail is shaped by hand from crystal glass rods and tubes. After the figurine's body is performed, it has to be reheated again, to add smaller detailes, as 'tails', "eyes". Eyes of the miniature made of drops of red crystal glass.
