Rip Wheeler is affectionate, playful, and all around a great dog. Unfortunately he tends to get overlooked because he's a bit cautious when it comes to strangers and this causes him to act out when people walk past his kennel. After letting him get to know me I’ve found he loves nothing more than curling up on your lap for some pets. (there's no use in telling him he's too big for that. He doesn't listen). It has been so rewarding to watch him come out of his shell. He loves to play and has even gained enough confidence to do some agility. He loves sqeaky toys and will paw at you if he's not getting enough love. He's still working on being safe in big open areas, outside is still scary to him, but he is making strides everyday! He is such a great dog! He just needs somone patient and loving to show him the world is not scary. The heart next to his picture means that he is a staff favorite! Come meet this sweet boy.
