Southpaw Rescue was contacted by a Good Samaritan after a video of a trembling dog in the San Bernardino Shelter went viral. Riley had been wondering a bad neighborhood for two months without being caught. Once in the shelter, Riley shut down and found himself on the euthanasia list within 72 hours. Southpaw Rescue was able to get to Riley and pull him within 15 min. of his cut off date for euthanasia.
Like so many dogs, as soon as we pulled Riley, we realized he was one of the sweetest dogs you could meet. He lives for pleasing his foster mom. Riley is great with all the other dogs in the home, both big and small. He doesn't pull at all on the leash and enjoys hiking.
Riley is learning his basic commands and has fallen into the home routine quickly.
He would be good in a home with children, other dogs or as a single dog. He craves human affection and attention.
Riley is a protector. When walking, he is constantly alert to his surroundings. If there is an unusual noise outside at night, he will alert you. If you are looking for an insanely loyal dog, look no further.
