We call Ralphy "won’t-wreck-it-Ralph because he would never harm a virtual fly. He’s too busy trying to be your best friend and in your arms. Have you lost your shadow? Because Ralphy will gladly replace it, and do an even better job than your old one.

Here’s a note from his foster:

Ralphy seemed to settle right into our routine, and he clearly was well loved at some point in his life. He has a ton of energy for a senior when it’s time for a walk or play in the yard, but he also has that amazing senior dog ability to sleep for hours and leave all your stuff alone. So far he appears to be house trained. I went to work this morning, came home, and then had to leave again for a few hours, and he was fine being left alone.

He does get crazy excited when I return, and he’s quite vocal about it making this funny squeaking barking noise! When it’s time to walk and I put his harness on, he will grab his own leash and joyfully run around the house. Once outside, he walks very well on the leash, though he of course likes to sniff and pee on all of the interesting trees and bushes. We passed other dogs, and he did not react to them. Ralphy also gets along very well with my two old pups. My really old one, who is both deaf and generally uninterested in other dogs, is happy to share a bed with Ralphy, so if Ralphy can win him over, I think he probably can be friends with anyone. So far he has not shown any interest in the stuffed toys we have everywhere, but I will try some balls and bones and perhaps those might interest him.

In the short time he’s been with us, Ralphy has already proven himself to be a perfect and lovely houseguest!

We’re delighted to report that Ralphy is currently in a loving and caring home!
