Arrival Story: Ripper came to live with me when he was two years old and had been injured in a fight over food with his collie friend. Ripper thought he was a big dog but learned that he wasn't the hard way. He was very fearful but has learned to overcome his fear of other dogs through agility training. Ripper is also an AKC Canine Good Citizen.
Bio: Ripper loves dog agility. Although he is not the fastest dog on the block, he has a great time and is very consistent. The weave poles were a challenge at first due to his vision problems but now he has them down. His handler seems to have more problems with the obstacles than he does ;-)
