Pet-Peeves:
Ripley is not used to human touch. He still cowers and runs away from us but he has made tremendous progress. He definitely prefers his daddy.

Ripley likes small toys.

Favorite Food:
Ripley loves chicken, liver, steak, pizza crust....yummmmy!

Favorite Walk:
Labor Day '08: We are taking Ripley to the park for the first time along with his brothers Kobe and Chucky. We think he is healthy enough to venture out and see the world as a dog should.

Arrival Story:
My husband and I adopted Ripley from a rescue group called Room for One More (rfom.org) . Ripley was used as a breeder dog all 11 years of his life. When he was rescued he was heartworm positive and the kind people at the rescue place gave him another chance and had his hw treated. This boy went through his treatment with flying colors and he is due back for a retest in October 08. I am hopeful that his test will come back negative. When we first got him, he was very skinny, spine and ribs were prominent, hair loss on his back, tail and neck and ears, most of his teeth were rotten and had to be extracted. It's been about 6 weeks and he's come a long way. He still has some ways to go but already by the second week he started showing energy and spunk and his spirits were always up. This little old guy is so full of life, we promised he will never experience pain and suffering again for the rest of his life.
