Facts about Ripley

  • Size: X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 27218
This sweet and gentle Korean mastiff is Ripley, a 6 year old boy that truly deserves a great home of his own. Ripley was found as a stray and it's a good thing that he did become a stray. He shows signs of living a terribly neglected life. His life was probably spent outdoors, on hard, cold concrete. He has old sores on his legs and was only 85 pounds when he arrived, which is very underweight for a dog his size. Ripley has spent several weeks getting back on his feet and is now over a hundred pounds, and a big, happy, healthy guy. He has a condition with his eyes called entropion, which we will be having repaired shortly, but he is ready to meet a good family that can give him a happy life. Ripley is super sweet, mellow, calm and easy going. He takes a minute or two to get to know you then will be leaning on you and trying to climb his big self up into your lap for some attention. He is very loving and mushy, and just an all-around well behaved and lovable lug. He seems fine with other mild-mannered dogs and would fit into any good family that can offer him a lifetime of happiness, like he deserves. File#27218 4/18/17
