Riley-ADOPTED!

Riley is a very handsome little 3 year-old boy who came to us from an overcrowded county dog shelter so he could take his time finding the perfect new home. The shelter listed him as a Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix but he looks to us like he might have a little Shiba Inu in his family tree too. The shelter told us that Riley may not like other dogs but we haven’t seen him show any aggression towards other dogs since he’s been with us. Perhaps he’s particular about his dog friends so if there’s another dog in his new home, he would need to meet that dog prior to adoption to hopefully ensure a compatible match. Riley is very affectionate with his human friends and seems to enjoy meeting new people. He can be very vocal when things are not to his liking but once he settles in somewhere he picks up the new routine fairly quickly and calms down especially when he can be around his human friends. Riley would not enjoy being left alone for long workdays and his vocalization would not be conducive to apartment or condo living. He has done very well with crate training in his foster home so with some consistent, positive direction on the part of his new family should be able to pick up the housetraining rules in his new home without too much trouble. Riley loves going for a walk and is eager to explore his new neighborhood along with his new family. He weighs about 14 pounds and his adoption fee is $375. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
