Ralph, 9-y-o Male, ADOPTED March 2018

Meet Ralph, a 9-y-o neutered male who thinks he’s 3! He is being given up because he’s so high energy that his owners can’t keep up with him. They’re retired and travel a lot and weren’t planning on having another large dog. But their son and daughter-in-law gave Ralph to them because they had a baby and Ralph didn’t like all the noise and erratic movements of a 1 year old. The baby’s antics made him anxious and one day he just walked over to the squealing baby and bumped him with his head and knocked him over. So, mom and dad decided he needed to go live with the grandparents. They live on a lake and Ralph loves to go swimming and running around chasing squirrels. He goes all day long and seems indefatigable! They take him on walks in the neighborhood on leash as well and he’s a great companion. At night, he loves to cuddle next to them.

We believe Ralph will do great with an active family, even children, if they’re school age, 6 and up, and taller than him. He is great with other dogs, has never shown an ounce of aggression toward any other animal. (He has seen cats but not lived with one.) He is the picture of health and has never had any health issues. His hips and joints are great, he has a gorgeous coat and skin, and he’s ready for his forever home.

Are you energetic enough for Ralph?
