Plenty of Pets

My name is Ripples and I’m a happy, friendly boy looking for a family I can love.

I’m a 10-month-old Shar-Pei-Mastiff mix and I’ve been neutered and vaccinated.

If you adopt me we can go to obedience classes together. That will be fun and will help me be the best canine citizen I can be.

There’s more information on me, and the other dogs waiting for homes, on the Animal Rescue Coalition website at
