Critter Chronicles: Ralphie

  • http-chronicle-northcoastnow-com-wp-content-uploads-2014-01-Ralphie-friendship-300x199

Ralphie has quite a history for being such a young dog. Ralphie was found shot full of BBs because someone used him for target practice. He has been at Friendship ever since trying to heal both physically and mentally. Ralphie is a sweet boy that has some trust issues with men but has come a long way. It's probably best if he is adopted into a quiet adult household or one with respectful older children. He loves to wear sweaters and jackets to keep himself warm or better yet be cuddling in someone's arms. Ralphie has some separation anxiety too so would do well in a home where someone is home a lot. Stop by and get to know Ralphie.

If you have kids and/or another dog in your family and are interested in adopting a Friendship dog please bring them with you for a meet and greet. No appointment is necessary. Stop by anytime during regular business hours.
