Ralph - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Bright Futures Rescue, Creston, OH.

Animal - Dog

Breed - Golden Retriever

Size - Small


And there he was, Ben as he was known at the Bright Futures Rescue in Creston, OH; now our one and only, Ralph!

There was one minor thing called distance that we didn't take into consideration. Ralph was close to 400 miles away from us, but once we saw his picture, it was too late, we were already in love.

We are learning something new everyday. Ralph is silly and adorable and loves to play fetch. He is such a joy to be around that it's hard to believe that he ended up at a kill shelter.

Thank you Petfinder and Jane at Bright Futures Rescue for bringing Ralph into our lives.
