Riley - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from White Settlement Animal Shelter.


My husband and I are both active duty Air Force and are seperated because of it, and I am pregnant too which makes it all the worse. I live in Fort Worth and he in Abilene. We made weekend trips to see each other but I felt like something was missing and I was so lonely in my house by myself, until I found Riley. I knew I wanted a dog who would be there in those lonely times, and who would love me just as I would love them, that is exactly what I found in Riley. He is an Australian Cattle Dog, more commonly known as a blue heeler. He is about 1 year old now, he was 7 months when I got him, and he is full of life, love, and energy! Whenever I am feeling down or life just seems to hard, all I do is look at that sweet face and wagging tail and my world is alright again. He has brought us more joy and love than we could have ever hoped for! I don't think that we saved him, he saved us. Thank you for leading him to his forever home, and us to happiness.
