Ringo - Adopted on 8/3/2022

Age:  About 1 year
Gender:  Male
Breed:  Mix


Ringo is a sweet, timid soul who dreams of a yard to lounge in and humans to call his own. Although Ringo is a bit cautious when first in new surroundings, with a little patience, he reveals himself to be a goofy, playful pup that has yet to meet a toy he didn't like. In fact, one of Ringo's signature moves in his foster home is to one by one retrieve a toy from the toy basket, relocate them to his favorite spot, and then bask in the glory that comes from surrounding himself with all things soft, squeaky, and chewable.

Ringo's house manners as a whole, are fantastic. He is house trained, crate trained, takes treats gently and doesn't beg for food. He is trusted to have free reign in his foster home when people are home. He would likely also be fine if no one was home, but it's just not something his foster mom has tried yet.

Ringo is currently being fostered with another medium sized dog, 3 cats, and 2 small children. Ringo and the resident dog are quickly forging a friendship. With the cats, Ringo is gentle and mostly ambivalent, including even when they have hissed or swatted at him. With the kids, Ringo has been an absolute gentleman.

Change can be scary so all Ringo asks for from a future person or persons is that they give him a little time at first to adjust to his new home. Once he does, and in relatively quick order too, Ringo will reward his future family with an utterly sweet, kind, goofy, and easy dog.
