Riley - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from New York City Feral Cat Initiative, New York, NY.

After our last family dog passed from cancer, we felt as if we lost a family member. It hurt everyone so deeply that we passed on adopting another dog. However, over the past few weeks, we discussed adding a new family member. First thing every morning, we would search for the perfect fit. And we found him in a 4 year old Maltese named Riley. We love you Riley!
