I’m looking for a Rat Terrier, but I want him/her to be very small but I would like to get one at about 8 weeks old. So, is there any way to tell if the dog is a runt or isn’t going to grow too big? I would like one to be about 8 inches.
Thanks in advance!
I care A LOT about the dogs personality, but if possible, I would like to try to find a smaller one as Rat Terriers go.

The smallest of the litter will likely be the smallest as an adult.
But being that specific, you’re just setting yourself up for disappointment. There’s no way to guarantee a dog’s size. If whether or not you love a dog depends on his/her size, don’t get one.
