I can’t do a THING with this hair… | Dog Shaming Oliver is a wire haired rat terrier in dire need to be groomed…we have an appointment on Tuesday, but until then he is so ugly he’s cute 🙂
Mine is like that too, but you can’t help but love them no matter what they look like or do
I don’t think that’s a rat terrier… Cute though!
Wire haired rat terriers look more typical of the types of terrier people are used to. Obviously hairier than you short haired rat terrier. He just need a little trim off the sides. Adorgs.
it’s probably a schnauzer mix , he is the wrong color to be a schnauzer as they only came in salt and pepper, black , and black and silver.. he is also a dilute with amber eyes . cute though.
he is perfect…..I haven’t heard that phrase since i was little and my grandmother would say it about her terrier ” whiskers” He is so ugly he is cute lol
I think the poster knows what kind of dog he/she has. Jeez.
there is no such thing as “wired-hair rat terrier” he is a mutt of ratting terrier linage most likly ..
Could be a Wire Haired Fox Terrier. Or a mix with a healthy dose of Wire Haired Fox Terrier in him. He has that Fox Terrier look…
I have a little dog that was given to me by a friend, she was categorized as 1/2 miniature poodle, 1/2 sneaky neighbor dog, she looks nothing like her little white poodle Mama, and exactly like your little dog. I think I know what the sneaky neighbor dog is now, thanks! We’ve always been fascinated by her beautiful eyes that match her fur color just like your little man.
Oh, Oliver, I know how you feel. My hair has a mind of its own too!
My nephew-doggie is a Brussels Griffon. His hair is the same way! My brother and his wife named him “Einstein” because of his crazy hair. It just adds to his cuteness though!
oh hes beautiful, lovely eyes i love the whiskers
Whatever Oliver is, he is a cute dog, despite the bad hair day. Who cares what his “lineage” is, as long as he is loved and respected by his family!
I’m Oliver’s owner. His mom is a rat terrier and his dad is unknown. He was the only one of the litter that was wire haired and didn’t have typical rat terrier coloring. The vet just calls him a wire haired rat terrier as we don’t have any further details. Maybe someday we will order a test! I wish I could post a photo of him groomed. Most of his body is a cocoa brown, but when his hair grows out the tips turn white! He also has a bit of caramel on his chest and eyebrows.
