Ralph – A Spunky and Playful Senior German Shepherd Mix

One thing you can say for sure about Ralph, he loves to have his picture taken.  This spunky boy is very photogenic and energetic.  Pop a leash on Ralph and he is ready to take off for a good long walk.

Ralph is a senior German Shepherd mix.  He came to a local shelter as a stray, so we don’t know a lot about his backstory.  He was originally very skinny, but the staff at the Perth Amboy shelter took good care of this boy.  We estimate him to be about 9 years old.  He appears to be in good health, with a little cloudiness in his eyes.  We have not yet had the opportunity for a full medical evaluation.

When meeting new dogs Ralph can be conflicted, sometimes he wants to play and sometimes he wants to bark and protect himself.  Ralph would do best in a home with no other pets.  He also gets excited on walks and likes to tug on his leash, but if you tell him to drop he listens right away.  Ralph knows some commands, such as sit, down, stay and drop it.  He can be a little mouthy and pushy when he wants attention, so an experienced owner will be a plus.
