Ralphie is up for adoption from the Niagara SCPA, and the workers at the shelter are pulling out all of the stops to get him matched with a family.

It seems like they want him gone if you read a recent Facebook post.

“At first glance, he’s an adorable highly sought after, young dog. People should be banging down our doors for him. We promise you, that won’t be the case,” it starts. The writer continues to not pull their punches, saying, “Ralphie is a terror in a somewhat small package.”

Ralphie was at his first home, but that relationship ended. He had a second home, but he was surrendered after two weeks because his new owners said he annoyed their older dog.

The SPCA workers translated that as, “Ralphie is a fire-breathing demon and will eat our dog, but hey, he’s only 26lbs.”

They even said “He’s a whole jerk – not even half,” warning “if you show a moment of weakness, prepare to be exploited.”

They made an additional post with a video showing how Ralphie acts and proving that he has some issues that could be corrected by the proper training with the right family. He is, according to Tuesday’s post, still up for adoption but the shelter workers are being selective on who he is placed with because of his behavior needs.

The workers also took Ralphie for an outing, where it didn’t go the greatest, but overall, the post said, “it was a good trip. No blood was shed. They weren’t told to never come back.”

Apparently, Ralphie isn’t alone when it comes to being a “demon.”

The Today show found one Facebook response that said, “If he’s anything like my frenchie, he’s a drama Queen with a Napoleon complex.”
