This handsome young man with the gorgeous brindle fur and sweet face is Riley! He's a Pit Bull Terrier Mix who's 1 year old, weighs 65lbs, is neutered, current on his vaccinations and is house trained & crate trained. He gets along great with dogs and would love to have another dog to play with in his Forever Home, he does very well with cats who have experience with dogs, and he would be happiest in a home without small children due to his strength & energy.
Riley was rescued when his owner's new landlord banned certain breeds so he went to stay with a friend of his owner. Unfortunately, he was kept in a crate most of the time and has separation anxiety so he needed to find a better place to stay. He's now enjoying life in his Foster Home and thriving!
Riley is an overgrown puppy who's very friendly and loves people! He enjoys snuggling with his Foster Parents, especially on the couch when they're watching tv, and his favorite snuggle place is in their bed, where he gets to cuddle them both separately. When his Foster Mom goes to bed, he likes to snuggle with her until his Foster Dad goes to bed, then he jumps down and goes to sleep in his bed, which is next to theirs. In the morning when his Foster Mom goes to work, he climbs up and snuggles with his Foster Dad until he leaves for work. It's a ritual they all enjoy! Riley loves attention, his favorite kind is body rubs, and once you see his sweet face with beautiful eyes, you'll want to give him all the attention he craves! He's incredibly handsome, his brindle fur is gorgeous, and he has the softest white tux along with white on his paws and neck. He has white around his nose and the cutest white line going down his forehead that is the perfect place to plant kisses! And, when it comes to smiles, this affectionate guy has one of the best smiles we've seen! It's big & happy and will either make you laugh or smile, especially if his tongue is hanging out!
Full of leftover puppy energy, Riley is very energetic, playful and loves toys! He gets the zoomies occasionally, which are silly bursts of energy, and he'll grab one of his toys and run around the house like crazy for a few minutes! It's so much fun to watch him and he'll keep you laughing with his goofy antics! One of his favorite activities is going for walks - when he sees his leash, he gets very excited! He calms down once he starts walking and walks very well on a leash. Due to Riley's high energy, he requires daily walks to keep his energy level low which will keep him healthy & happy! This handsome hunk also loves going for car rides and has been to a few public places where he was a good boy! He recently started going to doggie daycare and he's having the time of his life! He loves playing with all of the dogs and is one worn out, happy boy once he gets home.
Riley is a smart pup and has been spending time learning commands. He knows Sit, Stay and Lay down and is working on more! He loves treats, especially vegetables and ice, so having those handy when training might help. His Foster Family has been working on his manners when people stop by the house as he loves visitors but has a tendency to jump on them to say hello. He has separation anxiety so when his Foster Parents leave, they put him in his crate so he doesn't tear things up. He was kept in his crate a lot at his former home so he doesn't like being in it all the time, just when the Family is away.
Riley is still a puppy at heart and will bring a lot of joy & laughter with him to his Forever Home! His new Family needs to be patient & willing to work with him so he can be a happy, beloved Family member. Riley's Foster Family is having a baby so this handsome guy is looking for a new Foster Home! If you'd like to foster him, please fill out a Foster Application. If you'd like to give this handsome guy with the gorgeous brindle fur and sweet face the home he's been looking for, please fill out an Adoption Application for Riley.
