Ridge was on the run as a stray in Columbiana County (Ohio) for two weeks. He was eluding capture by many good Samaritans, volunteers of the shelter and the dog warden. Finally a trap was set and he was caught and taken to the shelter. We got word about Ridge through social media networking that the shelter would only release him to a rescue due to his fearful issues. Knowing a rescue would be able to get him the care he needed rather than risk adopting him to the public too soon that was the best option for Ridge. We contacted the dog warden and they were happy to know we had dealt with scared and feral dogs (Wilbur and Orville) in the past.

Ridge is a young, medium sized male. He will be moving to a foster home soon so we can get to know him better, build trust and get him on a schedule. He will be properly socialized with our pack. He has already met Thumper who is a confident female and is providing him with a calm energy as a kennel companion. We will consider applications for Ridge and would prefer to select a home without young children at this time. A fence in yard is not a requirement as most dogs with fear issues need to be leashed when they are out in public.

If you are interested in Ridge please let us know via email or fill out our online adoption application.
