Ripple is a Podenco Canario with an estimated DoB of February 2015. He is super sweet and friendly with people he with whom he is comfortable, a really great guy. A sort of velcro dog here at the sanctuary–but not a separation anxiety dog–he loves cuddles and affection more than anything–except perhaps food. At the sanctuary he has been fine with both indoor cats. He is a very nice, loving, cuddly, funny, goofy dog that seeks the right adopter and home. He’s had many applicants but no one quite right for him yet; when that right one does come along, there WILL be happiness all around because Ripple is quite a catch. He is a very special boy.
Ripple is housetrained, and he knows SIT, COME, and GO PEE. He also knows leave it/drop it but better in Spanish than in English. He is okay on leash though still does have times of hesitation when seeing vehicles on the road. He is much improved from the early days, however.
When our feral rescue, Story, arrived and needed a temporary outdoor kennel set up, that new spacial arrangement took some getting used to for Ripple. This should be no big surprise, since any change to the environment is likely to have some affect on most any dog. He adapted within a reasonable time and all is well. 🙂
With work on Ripple’s initial noise startle, he has made huge progress and now barely reacts at all to noises; when he does, he recovers quickly and easily to most every noise. He also is doing much better on walks. Still some nervousness with cars on the road but again much improved. He also has more confidence when another person and dog join us on walks. Basically he seems to be a boy who needs a little time to adjust to new things, but he does adjust well when handled properly.
Placement will be within 4 hours drive to Gearhart, Oregon or less. Ripple requires secure minimum 6 foot tall, no climb privacy fencing attached to his home.
