and 'fetch a pet...' Take a look



Age: 8 Months

Gender: Male

Breed: Chihuahua

Ralph is a lovely cuddly boy when he knows you, climbing on you for a fuss and giving kisses, he does take time to form bonds with new people so anyone wishing to adopt Ralph will need several visits so that he can form a bond before going home. Ralph would like a quiet adult only home where he can receive plenty of time and attention, he doesn’t like being left for long periods so would suit a home where someone is around for most of the day. Ralph loves tasty treats and learning new skills, he’d like a home that can continue to teach him new things using positive training. Ralph at the moment finds interacting with other dogs a little confusing, he wants to say hello, but can be quite vocal initially, we can advise on how to help Ralph feel more comfortable around other dogs. Ralph will make a very loyal companion. Please come along to the shelter and fill out an application if you would like to be considered for Ralph.
