Why Breed?

At TGR we put our animals first. They are well-loved pets that are spoiled rotten and bring endless joy to us. After years of research and several hundred dollars we feel comfortable to start releasing our little ones into the world for others to enjoy. Spreading that love, educating the public, and improving the rat and mouse fancy overall are our top goals. We will never make a profit, but that isn’t why we do it.

“Improving the fancy”

We strive to breed healthy, friendly, and attractive-looking mammals that are an improvement each and every generation. This is what "improving the fancy" means. We plan out each litter while considering color, markings, health of the parents, and much more. Breeding is absolutely not for everyone, and definitely not without heartbreak. The reward for us is worth it. We are a small operation ran out of our home so there isn't always pups available. The work however, never ends.

The popular choice in small mammal pet for a reason. Outgoing and attention-seeking, rats need the most love and time, but are greatly rewarding pets.


Mice can be a little more reclusive at first, but know who it is that gives them treats, and are certainly not above a little begging. 

African Soft Furs

With their big doe eyes, it’s hard to not fall in love with these little exotics. These guys love to cuddle and make great companions to lone male mice.

Egyptian Spiny Mice

Spiny mice are full of energy and love to crawl over each other and every piece of equipment in their cage. They need more room than mice and will gladly use every inch.

Recent Pictures

Lots of pictures are taken of our small mammals pretty much daily. I’ll try to keep this area updated, but the best way to see more pictures is on Facebook, Instagram, or the Small Mammal Discord run by TGR!
