Rippin was rescued from the pound. Being a large, black, male dog was not working in his favor, and we knew this boy was worth saving. He is a great guy - young, energetic, full of life and smart as a whip. He has settled in nicely here at the shelter and is showing great potential with some obedience training. He adores people and will do what we ask to please us. Rippin is still puppy-ish and and goofy as can be. Everything is fun for him and every new adventure pleases him to no end. He is learning some tricks and finding out what it is to be happy and carefree. Rippin would love a busy family who will include him in all the fun activities and continue teaching him gentlemanly manners and smart tricks.
