Riley - Riverside, IL

Spread the word about this lovable Doxie:
Do you like going for long walks? Well your in luck so do I. Can you be my person? See how pretty my smile is!

Riley wants his own person! He is a 9 year red smooth guy. He came into rescue when his owner could no longer care for him because of his declining health. He is super sweet and is very good with adults and wants to be in your lap He is toy aggressive and not fond of other dogs so we want him to be an only dog.

Riley is use to having someone home with him most the time so we are looking for some home more more than gone. A retired couple or person or some that works from home. Riley can be a barker so no apartments/condo or shared walls. Riley does NOT like cats. Riley love to be outdoors and explore and go for walks. He is very active. Housetraining is going well. You just need to set up a routine and have frequent potty stops. For Riley we are keeping a belly band on him until we are confident that he will always go potty outdoors. At night the Big Bed is where you will find him. .

Medical Information:

Riley is neutered and up to date on Vaccines - Rabies, Distemper, and Bordetella. He had a HW Tests and fecal both were good. His bloodwork was very good. He had a dental and only lost a few teeth. .
