Are you looking for an active dog to go on adventures with? If so Ragnar is the guy for you!
Ragnar would do great in a young, active family with another active dog for him to play with. He loves outings. He needs some training to not jump up, but is a smart boy so should learn quickly. He’s very treat motivated which makes training easy. Older kids would be great. His first family had a 10 yr old boy he enjoyed playing with. Ragnar would love his own swimming pool (his is a large, hard plastic, water trough from Atwoods). If you have a pool, he will likely be in it. He LOVES water.
Ragnar was owner surrendered by a family who had young children in lots of activities and they quickly discovered they had no time for him. They fostered for a short time but did not have sufficient fencing to keep him safe since they described him as an escape artist. He is now fostering with a 5 foot fence and has not managed to escape but care should be used when he is in a new home.
He loves, loves, loves his swimming pool. His pool is probably 2 ft deep and he loves to jump in and swirl around then gets out and goes back to playing after he’s shook off. He walks well on leash, and enjoys trips to Petsmart or your local pet store. He does well with other dogs but is a rowdy player and would benefit from dogs who play in a similar way as he does. He has not been around cats or children under 6.
Ragnar is a great and active dog that would love to join your family!
