Ripley loves people and does well with all dogs at the Sanctuary. Although he currently needs a lot of work on basic manners, he's a smart dog who learns quickly. He's working on being polite by keeping all four feet on the floor, rather than jumping on people, and is learning "sit" and "down." He is also doing crate training. As Ripley learns training cues and gains better focus, he is growing into a loving and sweet boy. Born in 2015, he will jump fences and is considered a flight risk. He has also shown aggression toward cats in the past and cannot live with them. Ripley will need an active home with someone who can keep him safe and secure.
