Find A Friend: Ralphie the mixed breed

Ralphie doesn’t have a big head, it’s more like a jumbotron for his huge and welcoming smile. At just 50 pounds, Ralphie’s not exactly supersized, but he sure does light up a room. For Ralphie, the dog days of summer have become the season of hope. He found his fun and funky new name and a safe-house to live in while rescuers search for his awesome new family. Ralphie’s a 2-year-old mix that gets along with other pets but loves people best of all, especially kids. Ralphie’s not much for crate-life, but no worries, he’s housebroken and well-behaved. Who doesn’t crave happiness? Smile back and adopt Ralphie for a lifetime of good cheer. He’ll come fully vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped from NewLifeDogRescue.org. Find them on Facebook @NewLifeRescue.
