Ratatouie is one of the best dogs I have ever owned. When I first got him as a rescue dog, he had been abused and the poor thing was very afraid of men. He would bark like crazy every time he was around a male until we trained him out of that. He got along great with our other dogs! They played all the time together. Dachsunds love to jump and Ratatouie would jump up on top of fences and he would perch there, balancing until someone came and got him. He was at trickster that one! He also loved to cuddle. He would burrow himself under the blankets and cuddle with you while watching movies. When we were eating dinner he would randomly hop up into someones lap. He was very friendly and sweet and had the best personality. He did occasionally have accidents and did shed a little bit, but for the most part he was absolutely wonderful. He made a great family dog and a great lap dog for those of you that enjoy cuddling with your pets.
