Riley ~ in Southern California

Looking for a Home

Riley I am called Riley and I am a fine big boy with a natural tail to wag. I am around two years old and I weigh 11 pounds, a big armful to love. I was taken from a city shelter with a bad case of kennel cough. Silky Rescue took care of me. I didn’t like the shelter much; it was noisy and I didn’t feel good. My foster Dad is taking good care of me and I like to be with him and have him pet me. He says that I am very loving.

I go for a couple of walks every day. I might pull on the leash a little, but you can help me learn to do it better, because I learn fast!. I already know “Come”, “Sit” , “Down”, and I can shake hands. I am cheerful and I get along well with the dogs I have met here, as long as they let me be the boss. I am quiet in the car and I sleep in a crate at night. I will climb out of a pen enclosure, so I need a secure fence.

I am neutered, my teeth have been cleaned, I have a microchip, and I have had all my shots.. And I am very cute. Just look at my picture!

Riley’s ideal home would have an active adult or two, maybe another dog (a girl?), a secure fence and some time to spend with him. An older child would be fine. We don’t know how he would like a cat.
