Meet Reese & Ripken!

GRRIN has two very special dogs in foster care that we would like to adopt together. Reese and Ripken’s bio is below – they are quite the pair! If you are considering adoption, please note:

  • Do you have a physical fence and is the fence attached to your home so that a dog can safely access the yard?
  • Do you plan to keep the dog inside when you are not at home?
  • Do you plan to have the dog live inside the house and be a part of the family?
  • Can you afford to spend upwards of $1000 per year to cover the standard medical costs for a large dog which include year-round heartworm/parasite treatment, annual vaccinations, and emergency vet expenses?

If you answered “yes” to these questions and would like to learn more about adoption, call our Goldline at 402-330-6680 and a volunteer will help you begin the application process.

About Reese and Ripken…

Ripken is a stunning, light-colored golden who is a complete teddy bear. He loves long walks and is quickly learning not to pull. He is fairly laid back and independent. He loves hanging out in the yard and will also try to sit on your lap.

Ripken gets along well with other dogs but is also content being by himself. We are currently working on house manners, but he is very smart and making improvements each day. Ripken is crate trained. He does require some coddling to get him in, but he is fine once inside.

Reese is a beautiful dark red golden with fashionable crimped hair on her ears and a fiery personality to match. She is very active and likes to stay busy. Fetch is a favorite game and when she is not playing, she is happy just carrying her favorite ball around (blue preferred).

Her favorite place to be is either chasing another dog around or by your side, sometimes on your lap…we’re currently working on “off.”

She is crate trained and easily goes in and is comfortable there. She walks well with little pulling but prefers to walk with a companion dog.

Reese is an absolute sweetheart. She is very smart and trainable, but will require some support as she adjusts to her new environment.

Reese and Ripken are both absolutely beautiful animals with perfect golden sweet personalities. As they have always lived together, our hope is to find them a forever home together. They get along fine with other dogs and people and have been exposed to a cat with no conflict. They do fine getting in the car and riding, but will try to get in the front seat.

Both dogs will require continued training and reinforcement to help make them the perfect family members that they deserve to be. Because they are young, energetic, and require training, they probably are best suited for an experienced dog owner.
