Meet Cross, the addition to our family. Cross was dumped on someone's driveway 12/30/14. The family has kids, is very busy and could not keep such an energetic dog. Ripley who is only a year old needed a play buddy badly cause Kinzie is 9 with bad knees and CHF so she just likes to lay by Mom. I picked Cross up today and from 11am to just now, 7:30pm Ripley and Cross have been non-stop playing. I didn't think they'd ever wear out. And, in case you are wondering, Cross is named after one of my favorite fictional characters, Alex Cross.
