Hi there, my name’s Ripley! I’m super popular here at Rain as I just love to meet new people and greet you with the wiggliest hello!
All the volunteers here at Rain adore me as I love to go exploring through the fields saying hi to everyone we meet on our way. I could play for hours with my human friends in the field, and love going for walks with the other dogs. Like most labs, my biggest love is food! I love all kinds of enrichment feeders, learning new tricks and trying out the agility equipment – just as long as it involves some form of snacks. I do like to be the centre of attention and can be vocal at times – I’m hoping my new family will be able to embrace my giddy and playful personality as I’m just so enthusiastic about life!
Unfortunately as you can see I have some ongoing issues with my skin – when I first arrived it was soooo itchy and would cry and nibble at my sore skin. Now with some help from the vets I’m on medication, a special diet and regular medicated baths to get me feeling more like myself. Although I’m doing much better and am starting to grow some fur back on my bald bits, my new family will need to be willing to manage my medical needs so that I stay happy and comfortable in the long term.
I’ve lived with both dogs and cats in my previous home and could live with other animals if we’re well-matched and introduced properly! I could live with children aged 6 or older provided they are confident around bouncy dogs like me. Click ‘Ask About Ripley’ to fill out an application and learn more about me!
