This foxy looking dog with the light colored fur and beautiful light eyes is “Ralph,” a recent arrival at the Bonaire Animal Shelter.
He was homeless and skinny, looking very lost and miserable when someone discovered him and brought him into the Shelter. After being checked over by the vet, given his tests and shots and cleaned up he’s a “new dog,” happy to be alive. What a transformation a little love and attention can create.
Ralph has impressed the Shelter staff with his sociability with people and other dogs and is a “keeper,” they say. He’s about a year old, young enough to train to your way of life, but past the sometimes destructive puppy phase.
You may see him at the Shelter on the Lagun Road, open Monday-Saturday, 9 to 1 and 3 to 5. Tel. 717-4989.
