I can see jack russell and min pin in her. What a cute face!

Truth be told, I have no idea what she is. I've been told by the staff at our vet clinic she's got a bit of min pin, jack Russell and rat terrier in her. Her temperament is closer to that of a rattie though. We *could* order a $110 doggie DNA test through the vet to be sure but we don't care what she is for sure. We love her to pieces.
She's always getting stuck in trees, mole/gopher holes and blackberry bushes because she *just* has to chase a cat. Or the neighborhood mole. She's also compelled to take down that squirrel or chipmunk that is gonna kill me.
She's stubborn-the trick is making her think she wants to do what we want her to do. Easier said than done.
She's 100% convinced my favorite recliner belongs to her and her alone, the couch belongs to her (the entire couch!) and we should feel privileged we're allowed to join her on the sofa. All our blankets on our bed (she loves to burrow in them) are hers and the very middle of our bed is HER half.
When hubby and I adopted her 14 months ago we paid $250 to the small dog rescue we got her from. Best $250 I ever spent. Also she's the best Christmas present I've ever gotten. The joy, the laughter, and the love I've gotten from this girl is worth more to me than all the money in the world. She's funny and sweet.

Is she a rat terrier or jack Russell? I have two jack russells now, but used to have a rat terrier. She certainly looks more like my rat terrier did. (I notice you said jack Russell in one pic and rat terrier in another.) Sweet little face she has!
