Looking for a playful pup to kick your butt into gear and help you live that can’t stop won’t stop kind of life? Meet RATATOUILLE! Get ready to be stopped by strangers all day telling you what a cool dog you have, because with his one blue eye, one brown eye, spots, and crazy giant rabbit ears, this guy is as unique as they come. RATATOUILLE has one thing on his mind and that’s PLAYTIME. He’s high energy and legit won’t stop, ever. He definitely does NOT have an off switch so he’ll need active adopters who can keep up with him. Luckily he’s pretty good at occupying himself if you need a quick nap as long as he has a mountain of toys to choose from. He’s rambunctious and excitable which means he tends to jump up, but is otherwise quite gentle so we think he’d be great in a home with kids to run around with, although he’s not officially kid tested. He’s still young so he’s working on all basic training including house training. He benefits from structure and does very well with routine, so we’re looking for a firm yet patient owner who will lay down the law. We would also like him to attend obedience classes as he’s very smart but needs some direction in order to harness all that intelligence into something positive. He occasionally remembers that he needs to sit and be calm for things like treats and food, but it’s a work in progress because PLAYTIME IS BETTER THAN EVERYTHING. DUH. He would do well as an only dog or a second dog as long as his new pal will play with him… like all the time. He hasn’t been tested with cats. RATATOUILLE is a sweet, fun loving guy and will be the perfect dog for someone who likes to live in the fast lane.
