Ruff Ruff! My name is Ralph
|Breed:||Labrador Retriever/Shar Pei Mix||Color:||White - With Red, Golden, Orange Or Chestnut||Age:||Puppy|
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Male|
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Ralph is part of a litter 14 puppies that were living outside in a nice man's yard in the 5th. They all had ringworm, but have been receiving treatment and that has all cleared up now. He is most likely a Lab/Shar Pei blend just like his brothers Josh, Drake, and Stevie. He is 18 lbs and approximately 5 months old (02/2013) right now and we think he will be about 40 lbs.
Ralph is a great family pet. He loves kids, cats and other dogs. He would be happy in a family setting especially with another companion pet to play with. He is crate trained and housebroken (he can hold it during the day). Very playful and would do well with training. He is very sweet and will enjoys laying in your lap. He is getting neutered 2/14/2013, so afterward he will be ready to go to his forever home.
If you're interested in adopting Ralph, please fill out our adoption application at http://forgottendogs.org/adoption_application.html Thank you!

Rescue Group Info...
We rescue in a low income area of Houston called the 5th Ward. We founded Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project about a year ago to address what we saw as an obvious need to help the many stray dogs we were seeing in there. We set up feeding stations and network and pull as many as we can when a foster home or no-kill rescue group says they can take them in. One of our goals is education and we provide residents with vouchers that cover the complete cost of having their animals altered and vaccinated against rabies. In addition, we provide other vaccinations and worming in the field free of charge. Since November 2011 we have grown in size and have rescued over 250 dogs and a few cats from the area. We are launching a program called Habitat for Hounds through which we will donate doghouses and blankets to residents for their dogs that are kept outside. Our website is forgottendogs.org and we are a 501c3.
We do not have a regular adoption site at this time, but stay tuned to our facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/ForgottenDogs5) for our upcoming events!
Our adoption fee ranges from $100 to $150. We have an online application and a contract and all dogs/puppies are either spayed/neutered prior to adoption if old enough or arrangements are made to have them spayed/neutered afterwards.
