Originally bred to hunt and kill rats, this former Belgian street dog is a distinctive and unusual breed. Although he's small, he's hardly a pampered pooch. Affectionate and lively, his intelligence, sense of humor, and air of self-importance keep him one step ahead of his people. They adore him anyway.
