Ripley is an Australian Cattle dog -Red Heeler mix that is approximately 2 years old and weights around 47 pounds. He knows the commands sit and shake. He will need exercise on a daily basis and when you do not pay attention to him, he may talk to you and let you know he is being ignored.
Ripley appears to be okay with other dogs. He does appear to get along with cats, but wants to chase them and get them to play. He is very food motivated which helps greatly with obedience training. Ripley will do anything for a treat and will be a little stubborn when no treat is offered.
Ripley likes to play fetch and is fairly good at bringing the toy back to you, for the most part. Overall he is a pretty great dog and would make a good addition to your family.
If you are interested in meeting Ripley, please visit him at The Animal Welfare Friends Shelter in Monticello. The shelter is open from 12:30 to 6:30 PM.
