Ripley is an OR due to family circumstances. She is ~7 years old, 13 inches, severely underweight at 9.5 pounds. She is now UTD, heartworm/fecal negative. Since she is anemic, we will postpone her spay/dental for a few weeks.
An update from Ripley's foster mom: Ripley has not been socialized and has a lot of fears. Her tail is between her legs most of the time. She paces and circles a lot. She likes food but will not eat or drink water in front of me. She sleeps through the night in a kennel by my bed. I leave the door open but she doesn't leave the kennel. When I leave the house I do kennel her with the door locked. She will come to me for petting when I sit at the dining room table and will let me pick her up. She loves to sit in my lap and be petted. She has minimal house training and has had accidents in the house. She has little interest in the resident dogs and no interest in toys. I haven't yet heard her bark. She is a major flight risk and will be out the door at the first opportunity. Ripley has a sweetness about her, but it will take some time to get her comfortable being in the house. She will need an experienced, patient owner to help her overcome her fears.
