Meet adoptable deaf border collie Ripley who is looking for a new home with someone who will cherish her and always keep her safe.
Ripley is in need of a new home. I am not going to be able to continue caring for her due to life changing circumstances. I’ve had her since she was a puppy. She’s a good dog. She has her special weirdness, but, don’t we all ? At 5 years old, she is way more calm and less needy for attention than she was when younger. She needs attention and play/walk/exercise at about total of 2-1/2 hours per day.
Ripley is okay to be left alone for extended periods of time. She likes humans. She likes other dogs on a one on one situation, preferably off-leash. More than one dog makes her nervous and unpredictable. When walking with Ripley on her leash/harness, I do not let her meet stranger dogs. Sometimes Ripley will lunge at incoming traffic while we are on our neighborhood walks. She knows how to stay in a crate. She likes to play with fetch/retrieve/Chase a ball, and is pretty good with soft frisbee type toys.
She likes tug toys, too. She does not like cats, domestic chickens, and bunny rabbits. She will attack and eat big flying insects. If left unattended in the backyard for extended period of time, she will dig some Ripley holes in the gardens. She gets good behavior reports from the staff at the kennel where she stays when I’m away from home for travel. She likes to stay and be by my side, always. She’ll do the same for her new caregiver, without a doubt. She is healthy, and up to date on vaccinations. She does not like to go visit the Vet’s office. Usually, I have to pick her up and carry her inside. I have the vet staff, or the groomer at the kennel do her nail trimming. Let me know what other information about Ripley is needed. Thanks in advance for all assistance in finding a new home for Ripley.
