Do you remember when we used to sing "sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah" brown eyed boy! oh so I know the song is called "brown eyed girl" but come on look at my chocolate eyes! This song was made for me.
My name is Ritter and I am a 4 yr old cutie patootie. Everyone keeps telling me how handsome I am....it must be my ever so lovely chocolate locks! I can be described as a really good dog that really enjoys hanging out with his people.
I am easy going guy that likes to follow you around to see what's going on. I love belly rubs and ear scratches. I have a really comfy mat that I love to nap on, so I don't get up on the sofa unless invited. Speaking of my mat, I'm really good at going to it when you tell me do so. I might need a reminder or two to stay there if you are eating or cooking something yummy.
Medically, like many dogs I tend to suffer from seasonal allergies. I tend to suffer more so in the spring time, and my previous family was really great about giving me Reactine which seems to work tremendously!
I only have access to bedrooms when accompanied by my parents at this point, but if I did have free access to them, you might find me sprawled out on a bed. If someone comes to the door I will bark to let you know. I'll probably jump up on them too once they come in, but usually settle down pretty quickly, especially once I know they are a friend. If you tell me 'off' or tell them to turn their back to me, I'll take the hint, sit down and wait for some attention.
I currently go out 3 days a week with a dog walker for off leash group walks on either trails, forested areas or at dog parks. I get a few other on leash walks during the week/weekend and I really enjoy them. Perhaps something along the lines of... I love going for walks. I'm a well behaved boy, both on and off leash, though you need to make sure I'm away from any cars before letting me off leash.
I use a treat dispensing ball for feeding. I do eat from a bowl from time to time. It's more fun and it slows me down a little! You won't have to ask me twice to bring you my ball, especially if I hear you getting my food out. I am super food motivated. Which means if you leave a nice steak on the counter I may counter surf so you will have to make sure all food is off the counter or at least out of my reach.
I have only ever been around a cat once in my life, so I'm not sure what I would do with them.
Do I sound like I could be a match for you? I sure hope so.
