Meet Ralph

Add to favourites

Meet Ralph, a big and handsome canine companion seeking a new home filled with energy and adventure. Ralph found his way into our care when his previous owners could no longer meet his needs. This lively fellow is bursting with energy, making him the perfect match for an active family ready for long walks and exciting escapades.

Due to his spirited nature, Ralph thrives in an environment with ample space, ideally a home with a yard and secure fence. Small spaces are not his preference, as he enjoys the freedom to move around. However, his exuberance can lead to jumping, so training to refine his manners will be beneficial. Ralph’s enthusiasm is not only charming but also makes him incredibly easy to motivate with treats, making ongoing training a delightful and rewarding experience.

Ralph is a ball enthusiast who finds pure joy in playtime, especially when a lively game involves his favorite spherical companions. When Ralph is swept up in the thrill of the moment, his happiness takes the form of a charming quirk – he always delights in having a toy cradled in his mouth. It’s as if the joy bubbling within him seeks expression through the comforting presence of a beloved plaything.

While Ralph was good with other dogs in his previous home, a household without small children would be most suitable due to his size and tendency to jump. The jury is still out on his compatibility with cats and other small animals, as this remains uncertain.

If you’re looking for a canine companion who matches your active lifestyle, has a love for outdoor adventures, and can be a loyal friend, consider bringing Ralph into your home. With the right training and a spacious environment, Ralph is sure to bring joy and enthusiasm to his new family.

Do you think you could be Ralph’s person? Here are some ways to find out:
