Riley

#790 Riley, Male, 1 Year Old

Riley is a very sweet, friendly and affectionate one year old male that will quickly steal your heart.
Riley is a very happy, healthy and energetic dog. Riley loves to be petted and have his tummy rubbed. Riley has been neutered and microchipped, he is on heartworm and flea preventative medicine, and he has completed his first-year vaccinations. Riley is 14 months old and currently weighs 38 pounds. He will follow you around, sit by you on the couch, and gladly sleep next to you at night. Riley loves playing with toys and chewing on antlers and knuckle bones. He loves to play with balls in the backyard. He has learned to catch a Frisbee and would play for hours if the weather were cooler. Since Riley has so much energy, he would do best with an active family.
Riley loves playing with his foster dog brother and would love a family that has another friendly dog that likes to play. He also gets along with cats. Riley sometimes jumps up when greeting people or when excited; because of this, we think Riley would be best in a home with older children. We think Riley may have spent most of his first year outside in a kennel. He does not like being left in a kennel. He would do best in a family where at least one person works from home so his time in a kennel is limited.
Riley is doing great with his potty training. He has not had an accident in the house for about two months. He knows to ring the bells hanging on the back door to go outside. He is learning various commands; he does sit and down well, and we are working on stay, off, and leave it. Riley is not a big fan of the car but we keep working on this.
Riley loves walks – just say the word and he runs to the door. He is still hesitant in new situations he encounters on walks and will need patience and encouragement as he continues to experience the outside world.
