If you've ever fallen in love with the movie Ratatouille and wanted a pet rat of your own, well, now's your chance.

Dartmouth native Hannah Grenier and her family have been searching for a forever home for their foster rat, but no luck thus far.

His name is Pickle. He's a well-trained house rat who wanders freely and is potty-trained. Instead of leaving his droppings wherever he pleases, Pickle knows to use his litter box. And he always returns to his cage for rest after his adventures.

However, Pickle might do best in a household without kids as he can be a bit nippy at times. Overall, he is an absolute lovebug for any adult looking to cuddle.

His age is unknown.

He was found abandoned on Chase Road in a kennel at Grenier's neighbors' house, cozying up with a massive Newfoundland dog.

Unfortunately, if you have any pet birds, Pickle would not be a good fit. He sees birds as a threat.

It's unknown how he would do with other pet animals, but from the information gathered, it appears that he's a lone ranger just looking for a loving family who will feed him and clean his litter box every so often.
