Gyro the special Dumbo

I am a dog trainer at Petsmart, an hadn’t planned on getting a rat anytime soon, but one day I was told of a dumbo rat in the back room who could not go for sale because he had a bad former ear infection that affected his balance and made him walk with his head tilted sideways. I immediately fell in love and took him home. I named him Gyro, since his internal gyroscope is broken. He is so sweet and he plays with my dog all the time! I just started teaching him to touch his nose to a ball at the end of a pole… he does anything for a peice of banana chip! I’m still a novice rat owner and am still learning about these sweet little critters, but I’m sure Gyro will not be my last rat!
