Lucy the Rat Terrier / Cavalier King Charles mix breed dog (King Rat) as a puppy at 5 months old—"Lucy has many of the terrier body features, short hair, long legs and will weigh about 15-18 pounds full grown. But she has the red color of the spaniel and the coat is very soft. Her head and ears are typical spaniel. She is so cute and has an easy temperament."
The King Rat is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Rat Terrier and the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
