RALPH - ID#A080305

My name is RALPH.

I am a neutered male, red and white Rhodesian Ridgeback mix.

The shelter staff think I am about 1 year and 10 months old.

I have been at the shelter since Dec 19, 2017.

This information was refreshed 11 hours ago and may not represent all of the animals at the City of Waco Animal Services.
Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
Wow, look at Ralph - is he not handsome and, well, almost regal looking? But, we promise, he does not let this go to his head. He is still very puppy and goofy, wanting people to pay lots of attention to him, take him on long walks and let him be an integrate member of their family.
For this to happen, this family will need to adopt him NOW and give him what he needs, a true and forever home.
Unfortunately, he was a return adoption because he jumped the neighbor's fence and had an altercation with their dog. Having said that, he is great in every other way possible. He just need to be in a yard with a tall fence or, be supervised when outdoors playing.
Please don't let the fact that he is heartworm positive scare you. His previous adopter's started him on Heartgard preventative to get rid of the nasty wormies inside him.

He was surrendered because he had a tiff with the neighbor's dog, which was only possible because he was left outside in a non secure fence.
Since being in the shelter he has been the virtual perfect gentleman. We have not seen him having a negative attitude in any way, and he actually did very well when we tested him with another dog, by the name of Giselle. They are a great match, playing, romping having fun. So, he likes the ladies, for sure, we have not tested him with the guys, but if you have either, please bring along for a meet and greet.
For sure Ralph is worth your visit, worth going to a great home and we believe it is out there.
YOU just need to come on in and meet him and we bet you will fall in love with him immediately!
