Meet River

Hi, my name is River! Here is what would work best for me in my new home:

-Personality: Rowdy, Affectionate, Exuberant Puppy
-Can Live with Kids: Yes, kids 12+ who can handle getting jumped on.
-Can Live with Cats: No history, prey drive unknown. Will need very slow, proper introductions.
-Can Live with Dogs: No history, but may be able to live with a very tolerant larger dog who likes rowdy play, after a proper introduction.
-Can do Apartment Living: No, I can be quite vocal.
-Potty Trained: Nope - I'm a puppy! We can learn together.
-Bite History: No
-Positive Reward Based Obedience Classes Required: Yes, I am required to sign up for puppy classes with my adopter to set us up for success.
-Experience Required: Yes - I am a rowdy, rude puppy and will grow into a large breed dog. I will need to learn manners and potty training. I should not be your first dog.
-Leash Trained: Yes, but I pull.
-Energy Level: High!
- Needs Medical Procedure Before Going Home: Yes, neuter and final vet check.
-Additional Information: River and his brother Joaquin came to WHS as strays. They love to play, but occasionally squabble over high value toys, and will do best in homes where someone can devote their entire attention to raising one well-mannered puppy at a time.
