Rats and mice do not have breeds like cats are dogs, but varieties. Below you will see examples and a short description of each variety of animal that TGR currently breeds. Not all will always be available, but this gives you an idea of what you can adopt.
We do NOT breed any coat type, color, or pattern on demand. Availability depends on the animals, our busy schedule, and whatever variety we are most interested in working on at the time.
These four coat types can be shown in any marking or color, and some coat types are better for some markings than others. Angora fur might make markings fuzzy and unclean, while satin can make a otherwise plain mouse shine. Other fur types: abyssinian, hairless.
Plenty of other colors exist, but these are the ones that are focused on at Tallgrass Rattery. Most of these colors can come in multiple different markings and by mixing and matching colors and markings you can make for really unique mice!
Again, there are many, many markings but these are the ones focused on here at TGR. Some markings can be combined together such as a pied brindle or a marked siamese (though siamese are best with no other markings).

Standard (also called top-eared) on bottom, dumbo on top. Most of my lines have both, but some only have dumbo.
