Hey there! My name is Ralph, and I am a very handsome 6 year old tan and white male who has had a very rough start in life, but am now ready to find my forever family who will catch me up on all the love I’ve missed out on.
Probably due to my unhappy past, I have some resource guarding issues that center around food and sometimes around attention when I feel like I’m really enjoying being the center of attention. For that reason, I would probably do best in a home where I could be the only dog, or else in a home with one other dog that is very calm and has a submissive personality. I don’t really do well with over-stimulation. I do seem to be okay around cats.
I do have separation anxiety, and so being in a home where I could be with you most of the time would be best for me. I love to go for walks, and I will happily continue walking beyond what is good for my hips and knees. So I’m looking for a family that would be okay just taking me on short walks, but lots of them! When I think I’m about to go outside, I get super excited, and I’ve started expressing my joy by picking up a toy or even a shoe! I also love going for car rides. In fact, I love them so much, I will happily jump into any car that I happen to come across!
Do you think that you could be the forever family that will finally turn my life around from one of sadness to one full of love, attention, healthy food and safety? If you think we might be a good match, please fill out an adoption application and mention my name — Ralph!
