The rat terrier and Shih Tzu mix is commonly referred to as the Ratshi Terrier. There are several good pictures of Ratshi terriers on the Dog Breed Info Center website at www.dogbreedinfo.com/ratshiterrier.htm
If you would like to see any more pictures of Ratshi terriers, then you can find plenty of examples simply by conducting an Internet search engine image search for 'Ratshi terrier'.

When considering the difference between various Ratshi terriers, it is important to remember that not all hybrid dogs are bred as 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is fairly common for breeders to breed 'multi-generation crosses', meaning that the balance between the two breeds will not necessarily be equal to each other in the hybrid dog.

• Rat terrier
The rat terrier is an American dog breed that has a traditional role as an all-round farm dog and hunting companion. In the 1920s and 1930s in America they were commonplace on family farms, but they are considered a fairly rare breed in modern times. They come in a variety of coat colors and patterns. Although they are often mistaken for Jack Russells, the Rat Terrier will tend to be less aggressive and calmer. They have a kind of 'social sensibility' that means that they often prove to be suitable family pets.

• Shih Tzu
The Shih Tzu is a smaller dog, known for its long silky hair and originating from China. The traditional long glossy coat of a Shih Tzu often requires daily brushing to avoid become tangled. They sometimes suffer from hereditary health problems, such as breathing problems.
