Volunteer Thought: Living the life of Riley?? Well, for Riley her idea of “living the life of Riley AKA a charmed life” would mean giving and receiving love and attention.  As terrific as she is in getting along with humans and other dogs, one would think her new home is just a tail wag away!   A very well balanced girl, Riley nicely sits when asked and if she is feeling a little more froggy, will run and chase after balls. A skilled leash walker but perhaps at times a little more strong, Riley seeks and gives affection and would be very much in her element caring for kids in her new home. Riley hopes to continue to lead a charmed life. Think you can give this broad a new home and the life of Riley that she so deserves?

Staff Thought: Riley is such a loving sweetheart.  She can be a little strong on the leash like a girl on a mission but will nicely stop when I ask for her attention.  I was successful in redirecting her with a sit, which she does know and pretty much does whenever I give her the command.   Once in the arena, she was curious and would amble around, but didn’t show too much of an interest in toys.  Again, I could get her attention when I called for her.  If I sat down, she would come and check in, and climbed up on the bench so she could better access my lap.  It started raining, so I didn’t keep her out too long, but spent some time loving on her in her pen.  I started giving her some butt scratches and body rubs which she loved, and she in-turn started just rubbing her body all over mine giving me a full-body snuggle, which was freaking adorable.  I think that she is a calm, gentle-natured girl – up for walks and adventure, but also content to just be snuggled-up next to her human.

Volunteer Thought: ‘Loving sweetheart’ are words often used to describe Riley.  A very well balanced girl, Riley nicely sits when asked.  She seeks and gives affection and would be very much in her element caring for kids.  Happy and carefree, Riley would make a nice addition to most any family.  Only 2 years old, Riley is ready to offer you many years of love and enjoyment.

February 2020: I love kids update!  Riley is such a loving sweetheart. When recently introduced to a family with small children, the first thing she did was to greet each family member and was especially gentle with the youngest of the children. A very well-balanced girl, Riley nicely sits when asked. She seeks and gives affection and would be very much in her element caring for kids in her new home. Happy and carefree, Riley would make a nice addition to most any family. Only 2 years old, Riley is ready to offer you many years of love and enjoyment.
