If you are interested in adopting Ripple but have other dogs, a meet and greet is required. Ripple possibly had food issues in her previous home.

Officer Stephen Watson says she was left behind by a previous owner who was evicted.

If you’re interested in meeting her, head to New Hanover County Animal Services at 180 Division Drive in Wilmington. They’re open weekdays from 11 a.m.-3:30 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to Noon.

New Hanover County residents can adopt for $70.
