Hello! I just thought I’d send an update on Ripley, formerly known as Andebar. He was transported up from Georgia along with his sister, now called Penelope, and with a group of puppies named after countries. We adopted him on Valentine’s day in 2013, and he was just a baby at only 8 months old. It is hard to believe he will be four this June! Ripley is doing AMAZING and is so loved that he was even a part of our wedding that summer. He is so spoiled, and has made our lives so much better. His best friend is another alum of your shelter from 2008, Skippy (formerly Bobby-Jo) the corgi mix whose sibling was adopted by a staff member at the shelter. Ripley is looking forward to welcoming a human sibling this fall, and we know he will be great with the baby. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to welcome him into our family! When it comes time to get him a canine sibling, we will definitely be looking for a match at the shelter! Thank you again!
