Ratchet could be your lucky number! At 7 years old and 77 pounds, this available boy is a darling male red hound mix located in Dover, NH. You won't be taking a risk placing your bets on this sweet dog! Ratchet was picked up as a stray and has been in a shelter since March. His wonderful advocate spends lots of one-on-one time with him and says he has a winning personality. Ratchet is still very active and likes to play with toys, especially tennis balls. He loves people once he gets to know them. He's also is a fan of car rides, belly rubs, and getting attention. He is housebroken, neutered, and up-to-date on shots. Ratchet has a history of resource guarding so someone experienced or willing to learn how to manage this is best. He will guard toys and treats, although his advocate says he is fine with her. He has learned some basic commands, but will benefit from continued work on good dog manners. Ratchet will do best in a home without cats and young children. Dog-savvy kids 14 and older are preferred due to his resource issue. He would do well with a nice compatible low energy dog, but will also make a great only-dog. Applications must be submitted online https://popememorialcvhs.org/adoption-info/ and those meeting Ratchet's requirements will be reviewed as soon as possible.
