Ripley is a female German Shepherd full-blooded but with no papers. Approximately 3 years old. I am not the original owner, so I do not have information to trace to get papers. I am disabled and am not able to properly take care of her. She is smart but also very head-strong. She needs a gentle, dedicated person or persons to continue her training. She has never been mated and is not fixed. She is timid but loyal and will guard and approach someone she doesn't know if they get too close to her favorite people. She has never bitten anyone. No need to worry about her around children. Once she gets to know you she loves to play when you initiate it. She weighs about 90 pounds.
