Rat Terrier, just like any other terrier is an active dog too, but definitely not as much as JRT. Some Rat Terriers are actually much calmer, than a typical terrier breeds. This can be a big advantage for some older or not so active people. Because if you will get a JRT, be prepared, that will need a lot of physical stimulation. It can be a lot of fun, but it can also be little bit difficult.
Ideal height for this breed, according to the FCI breed standard, is 36-38 cm. Weight wise, it is sturdy for its size. It is said to weigh around 33-40 pounds, with the male generally being the bigger of the gender.

There can also be some light black hairs. You can also find Alpine Dachsbrackes in black with red-brown markings on the head, chest, legs, feet and underside of tail.
Most Alpine Dachsbrackes are excellent with children and good with dogs and other pets, but i would not leave this dog with some smaller pet unsupervised, since they do have a strong prey drive, just like every other scent dog.
As you can probably guess, there is some Dachshund blood in Alpine Dachsbracke. They were developed by crossing Dachshund with larger Austrian breeds.This breed was a favorite among Austrian nobles, known for its versatile abilities to hunt deer as well as fox, boar, hares, and more.
The Alpine Dachsbracke is prone to obesity. The breed was bred to work hard over difficult terrain and it is almost impossible to give them this physical exercise, when they are kept as companion pets, which can lead to gaining a lot of weight.

The first Collie was imported to USA in 1897 by Allen Apgar and because his Collies started winning dog shows, other people wanted them as well. Today, Collies are very popular in USA and it is no wonder, they are excellent dogs. The American Collie head is narrower and slimer and their eyes are smaller. Those differences are not big, but definitely noticable.
The Airedale Terrier’s coat is hard, dense and wiry, with a softer undercoat, and comes in both tan and black and tan and grizzle.
Airedales make good family pets as long as they get daily mental and physical exercise. They like to be the head dog and may not do well when another dog challenges that position, although usually get along well with smaller dogs.
With other dogs, most Airedale Terriers are bold and aggressive, and with their strong hunting instincts they must be exposed early to cats, else they may not be safe with cats. Rabbits and rodents are not a wise addition to the household.
Airedale Terrier was one of the first breeds trained for police work in Germany and Great Britain. In World War I, he worked as a guard and messenger dog.
