Ready for Adoption
Ripley is an OR due to family circumstances. She is 3-4 years old, 13 inches, now up to a healthy 15.4 pounds from her intake weight of 9.4 pounds. She is UTD and heartworm/fecal negative. Ripley has been spayed and has had a dental. Perhaps because of the conditions she came from, Ripley had some liver issues on intake; these have been addressed and our vets feel she is now ready for adoption!
An update from Ripley's foster mom: Ripley is a wonderful companion dog and faithful friend. She is loving and friendly with people and other dogs. We have not cat-tested her yet, but I expect that any problems would be of the cat’s opinion. Ripley is shy at first meeting, but will let a new person pet her and she makes friends quickly. Ripley loves to be involved with what is going on and is even wanting to learn a few tricks, but will also be happy to hang out on the couch and watch television with you. She is the perfect houseguest with a great doggie manners and excellent house training. She even likes to go on car rides with her foster sister. The two girls play doggie games of chase and tug together and Ripley has quite a sense of humor when she steals the tennis ball from seemingly out of no where. Ripley has very fast and with more confidence and training she could have a future in a doggie sport of some sort. However, Ripley is happy to just hang out and with you! She loves people and gives great doggie hugs! Ripley will need to have another playful dog in her forever home.
