There are some 3 month old rats for adoption at a local rescue but they don't have any pics....can someone post some?

The colors and markings that the males have are buff hooded, brown hooded, and bershire. This is what the site of the rescue says.

Thanks everyone....I just want to know basically what they look like before i go to adopt one and see which ones are friendly or timid.

My Jack's a black variberk, meaning he's a Berkshire with a bit more spottiness.

The underside of his belly is white, but his has a couple spots of black.

The brown hooded could be an agouti hood or a chocolate hood, I'm not sure which.

And the 'buff' hooded... Is buff the other word for beige :? I get confused about this sometimes. :lol:

Berkshire - coloured rat with white belly, white forepaws, white tip to tail, and sometimes white on the hind feet.
Variberk, the white goes up the sides more.

Black berkshire (Fayth)

Brown hooded could be agouti hooded (Rennie)

or a bad black, Chocolate is rare in Petstore rats (Talli on right)

or dark brown-hooded


Buff hooded would be beige hooded
Tosca (mismarked bareback)

Vesta (3rd from left)

Thanks you guys....i just wanted to see what they would look like....I think if i get to go up there i'm going to pick one out by personality first and color second....this way i'll have a social and sweet rat that isn't the color i would have chosen instead of the rat that i wanted by color but is very timid or not very social.

Thanks for your help....people on this site always post replies and it really helps :D

Yeah, when picking a rat it helps to be color-blind. :)
