Sometimes people call me Half-Face, can you see why?!

About Ralphie


Hi, I’m Ralphie! Let me tell you my story…

For a long time I was living the relatively good life of a TVNR dog near the US Embassy, where I was fed, loved and taken care of by the Embassy staff. Unfortunately, as I am very kind and gentle, I was an easy target for more dominant dogs, some of which started to bully me. So, I came to the shelter where I can be safe and don’t have to fight for food.

I love humans, always wag my tail happily when I see them and have a positive and cheerful character that makes everyone feel good and smile around me. I also get on well with other dogs, as long as they are not too dominant.

People say I am really special because half of my face is brown and the other half is white, so sometimes they call me Half-Face instead of Ralphie. 

I’d love to find a forever home where I can continue to feel safe and make people smile… Could it be your home?
