Ralphie is an exceptional dog. He is mild mannered, gentle and friendly. He is friendly to everyone and everything. He walks on a leash well, doesn't bark much, hardly sheds, is stunning and loves affection. He has never shown aggression over anything including his toys, treat and food. WE HAVE BEGGED for his life - and since he's a favorite in the shelter he has one more week to find a home. He came from a home with four young children, two other dogs and ferrets. A divorce broke up the family and subsequently displaced the animals. His dog siblings were much smaller and were adopted by a local family, and they left this poor boy behind. Of the three he has the BEST temperament! He's losing faith in being rescued and it's obvious in his face. He just stares at the outside hoping someone will come save him. We have videos of him loving on the volunteers' children. His tail wagging and showing just how gentle and sweet he is. PLEASE HELP RALPHIE.. he is worth it. We've had him vetted and checked out by the vet. HE IS HEALTHY!
