~*LOCATION: Ann Arbor, MI*~Ratchet is a healthy and energetic standard size Eskie. He’s a very handsome dog. Since he was a stray, we have estimated his age to be around six years old.Although Ratchet minds well, he requires an experienced dog owner that enforces rules and boundaries. He is submissive to humans and eagerly rolls over hoping for a belly rub. He is housebroken and crate trained. Ratchet loves interacting with people and he’s a social butterfly, always wanting to be where the action is.Ratchet is a dominant male but because we closely supervised their interaction at first, he gets along fine with the resident alpha male dog and they love to play rough and tumble, as most boys do! Ratchet is too much of a dog for very small children. If youngsters come to visit, he needs to be kept separate from them unless adults will keep a watchful eye. Children over the age of 10 or 12 would be okay. It is unknown how Ratchet behaves with cats.Ratchet walks very well on a leash. He also loves to run so he is an excellent jogging partner. He has been de-barked at some time in his past so when he speaks, he has a raspy, muffled voice. He loves to play with toys and he is excellent at the game of fetch.If you enjoy teaching dogs manners and tricks, Ratchet would be a good fit for you because he is very responsive to calm, assertive leadership. He will quickly become a loyal companion and you will thoroughly enjoy his happy, enthusiastic disposition.
Whenever possible Eskie Rescuers United tries to adopt out its dogs locally (or at least to adopters in adjoining states to where I'm being fostered). Please note that ERU processes LOCAL adoption applications before considering those from out of state. If I'm not local to you, as explained above, and you really have your heart set on me, you will have to make special arrangements so ERU can get me to you safely (for example, flying me to you at your own expense, or paying a transport group to drive me to you). Note: We may ask that you to make a donation to cover transport costs if the distance is great and we have trouble finding transport drivers.There is an adoption fee required; and, please be aware, Eskie Rescuers United will not adopt out its dogs as outdoor dogs. Eskie Rescuers United American Eskimo Dog Rescue, Inc. is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
