Adoptable Dog of the Week – Rhett

He might not have an iconic mustache to prove it, but he sure is a heartbreaker, just like his namesake! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Rhett, a 3 to 4 years old hound mix, from Minneapolis, Minnesota. This handsome fella is neutered, up to date with his shots, housetrained, and good with other dogs.

Rhett’s Tale

If you are looking for a friendly, energetic dog, Rhett is the perfect match for you. Best described as an “extremely lovable goofball,” this pooch wants to see the world and would love an active human companion! He enjoys car rides, walks (he’s great on a leash), and lots of snuggles.

When it comes to playtime, Rhett is always up for fun and games. He loves playing so much that, even after his playmates decide they’re done, he just makes up something interesting he can do on his own. Like playing fetch with himself or gathering his toys in a little pile! After he burns off that energy, Rhett is a pretty mellow guy. He’ll curl up right next to you and patiently wait for some ear scratches and belly rubs.

As for other pets in the household, Rhett loves everyone he meets, whether they’re four-legged or two-legged. He’s respectful of other dogs and gets along well with them, regardless of their size, but he needs to work on his excitement around kitties (who doesn’t?), so it might be best if his future family lives in a cat-free home.

Rhett is exceptionally well-mannered- he is fully housetrained and crate trained. He was taught to sleep in a doggie bed during the night but, shh- he’ll join you gladly in your bed if you have some room to spare.
