Hi - my name is Rip. I am a very young pup, only 16 mo old. I am a black tuxedo male. This very ugly fur will be gone soon. With a good diet and brushing, I will have a beautiful black silky coat. Don't let this bad hair day fool you. I am very loving and friendly. I am an attention hog. I am so cat and small dog safe that I gave that test kitty all kinds of kisses.
