Rat Terrier Portrait

rat terrier face

The Rat Terrier is a sensitive and active dog, who has an outgoing personality. Overall this breed tends to be calmer than some other terrier breeds and enjoys spending time sitting next to people. A fun fact is that Rat Terriers like to be chatty,  always ready to share his opinion with you. All you need to do is start the conversation!

This cutie started out with ta rather dark reference photo and I worked and worked until I finally had the type of texture that made him pop off the canvas.
