Riley is a big happy boy looking for his new forever home! Riley is sweet, gentle and loving with his people. Riley loves to go for walks, play ball, and relax around the house.  

He has had lots of training throughout his life, and is currently being fostered with trainers who have known him throughout much of his life. He loves to practice his training skills, is highly food motivated, and loves positive reinforcement style training! His fosters are happy to pass along any and all information on how to help continue his training foundation into the future! Riley would do best with a fenced in yard to sniff and explore! He comes in on the first call every time!  Check out this fun video of Riley.

Riley has done well living with older children. Would likely do best as the only dog in the household. He can get along with other dogs, but he is best with female dogs. He’s more of a people dog! Riley has a fear of storms and fireworks. He has a situational anxiety medication for storms and fireworks. He also takes Fluoxetine (doggie Prozac) for general anxiety, and does really well on it! 

Riley is from an owner surrender. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
