Arrival Story:
After 40 years of not being an animal person, my daughter broke me. We decided on a rat terrier. Little did I know that he would steal all of our hearts. So much so that 2 years later, we got another little friend. Banjo's primary photo was on his graduation from puppy obedience school.

When we got Banjo, we thought we were getting my daughter a pet but we really got an addition to our family. We got him at 10 weeks and at times we had our hands full with his chewing up the carpet, shoes, laundry and anything and everything that was NOT a dog toy. We signed him up in a puppy class and he did very well. Even though he is still very active - he will walk by a pair of shoes now without grabbing them and running. He runs sooo fast! He will be in the yard and will just start running the parameter of the yard. It is funny how fast he is! There is no catching him. He is also very devoted. Recently, my daughter was sick and was in bed for a couple of days. He stayed right beside her. He could sense something was not right and he stayed at her bed until she was better. I love these little "ratties".
