Riley. Riley is a thoughtful, cheerful pup. He is a Pit Bull.
He loves talking. He is also known for dissecting squeaky toys.
Despite the fact that he sometimes growls at the T.V. for no reason whatsoever, he is as dedicated a partner as any dog could conceivably be.
Unfortunately, Riley was a stray with his collar embedded around his neck and in need of surgery to remove it. Riley was brought to ShelterPups.com and now spends time playing with the other Shelter Pups while patiently waiting for a Rescue Hero.
Riley now dreams of the simple things like a kind human to worship, and a soft, safe place to snuggle. Riley is a friendly, medium energy dog. Riley's warm and friendly nature makes him the perfect comical companion for anyone. Riley can be "overly affectionate" and he'll be best in a home where he can get to spend plenty of time with humans.
He is already house broken and knows tons of tricks!
Things You Should Know Before Adopting Riley
Riley is a friendly, medium energy Pit Bull. Be ready for action. Also, each dog breed has certain traits. Knowing a little bit about your pup's individual personality and breed personality will give you some clues about how to care for your pup.
There's a lot of Pit Bull in this Shelter Pup!
Friendliness: Pit Bulls may look brawny and tough but they are actually very good natured and sweet companions. This breed was specifically bred for patience and acceptance, making this pup a polite playmate. Make sure your Pit Bull meets lots of new dogs so he doesn't become too shy.
Grooming: The Pit Bull's extremely short coat is very low maintaince but also make Pit Bulls sensitive to cold weather. Brush your pup every week and provide a warm jacket while playing in the snow.
Exercise: A Pit Bull may look active and powerful but they only need moderate daily activity to stay healthy. A daily walk on a leash or short romp in the backyard will keep a Pit Bull happy and fit. Young Pit Bulls like to jump so obedience training is very important.
Sorry, but Riley was already adopted by an International Rescue Hero!
