Bernese Mountain Dog 2 years old


Ripley is tall! 95lbs


Ripley is a happy dog and she is always smiling. Ripley loves everyone. As soon as she meets you her official greeting is to sit on your foot with her back to you. When Ripley sees very young children she lies down so that they can reach to pet her more easily. While Ripley is kind to everyone, it is all about Ripley - she is beautiful and she knows it!


Ripley has completed multiple levels of obedience training.

How you know your dog enjoys being a therapy dog ...

Ripley started as a theraphy dog in 2009. Therapy visits combine two of Ripley's favorite things - time with me and an opportunity to meet new friends.
