Hi! My name is
I have an Adoption Application Pending!
Terrier, American Pit Bull/Mix
Date of Birth
August 26, 2018
Ramsey came into AARCS care after being quilled by a porcupine. He has since had the quills removed and has recovered well.
“People often think I’m rough and tough when first meeting me. I can’t contain my excitement, I give big ole BOW WOW’s, wiggle my body, and jump towards them. I think I’m the size of a chihuahua, and what they see is a big pup built like a mac truck. I need to work on controlling my excitement when I see people. I’ve been set up with the behaviour team to start working on this.
Every time I look at a person, I get a treat. Sometimes I let out a few barks before I realize there is a treat waiting for me. I LOVE this game once it starts. Instead of barking and being too excited, I can look at people, look back at my hooman and get a snack! I do get excited on leash and pull a bit to get around the outdoor world. There are so many smells out there and things to explore! A front clip harness and a hooman prepared with treats helps me greatly.
I’m a big boy and would very much like to be a lap dog! My foster mom gives me an A+ in the snuggles department. I’m a major league bed warmer that wants to be by your side. Anywhere you go, I will follow. Sometimes I can be tempted by the delightful smells coming out of the kitchen and peek in for a treat. I would do best in a home with a fenced backyard, my big WOOFs are too much for apartment or condo living.” – xo, Ramsey

Yes, Behavioral Special Needs - Ramsey gets very excited when seeing new people, he barks and jumps towards them while on leash or in the backyard. He will need a patient and committed adopter to help him work through this.
