Hi there, I am Ridge. You would not believe your eyes if you saw me when I first came to Dogtown. I was not in a good way. In fact, I had a broken pelvis and could therefor not walk. I had problems controlling my pee and poop (so embarrassing) and I had lots of wounds. The doggy-doctors said they think somebody knocked me over with a car but didn’t bother to get me any help, but that was then…. and this is now!

I am a super happy boy and my smile literally almost wraps around my head! I will never so no to a game with some furkids, especially if it means I get to run like the wind :) I mean after all, my legs have been given a second chance so I am using them with all my might! I love learning new things, I am very clever like that!

I do get along with other dogs but I can be a bit cheeky sometimes so my perfect fur-siblings would be chilled out and not too highly strung. I must tell you that I am not a fan of cats. At all. So my perfect home would be cat-less :)

My start in life was not great so even though I am such a handsome and happy boy, I sometimes panic easily and I don’t like to be restrained. I think it’s safe to say a home with young kids would not be the best match for me, purely because I panic easily and young kids might not understand this.

I really love walks but the leash scares me, my caregivers are working on that though. I love running around off-lead though…. that is just the best ever. I also love swimming or splashing around in the pool, followed by a nice long nap of course :)

Please come and meet me, I would love for you to get to know me and I would love to be your best friend forever :)
