Plenty of Pets

Riley is a Pomerarian mix who needs a family to love.

Riley is about five years old and enjoys car rides, cuddling on the couch, going for walks and eating treats.

He is friendly with other dogs but a home where he is the only dog would be best, to ensure he gets the attention he needs. He isn’t very interested in cats and probably wouldn’t mind one living with him. He can handle children in small doses but when they get excited they make him nervous.

Riley is house trained and walks well on a leash. He will sleep in bed, at his person’s feet, or in his crate.

His new person will need to take part in obedience training with him
