Meet River

Everyone meet River!!! We’ve had River for a little while but he is now ready to find his forever home. When we got this little boy he had just been tossed out of a car window by his owners. His little head and legs were scraped up pretty bad but he was blessed in the sense that no bones were broken and he was rid of those awful people. River also had some behavioral issues but who could blame him. Jump ahead to today and he is all healed and behaving much better. ?

River is a little Russel Terrier mix weighing about 10 lbs. The shelter guessed him to be around 4 years old but I think he may be younger. He acts like it anyway. ? River can have a lot of energy and loves to play. He can also be very calm and snuggly. He loves his human. He has been doing good with his potty training. He has been doing very well with sit and stay. And, he does great with his crate.

River could still use a little more training. He wants so badly to be a good dog and he really is. He is so loving. He does good with dogs closer to his age to play with. River’s bad habbits…he love ink pens. If you leave one laying around he will get it and take it to his bed and chew it up. LOL He doesn’t chew up anything else, only pens. He also LOVES coffee. If you sit your coffee cup down and walk away he will be on it lapping it up. LOL He’s quirky and adorable. He can sometimes be a bit of a bully with older dogs but has improved a lot in that area as well. River is still a work in progress but he is doing so good now.

The perfect home for River would be a younger active family. Preferably one with another dog close to his age he can run and play with. He needs a fenced in yard and someone that is home a lot. He is fine when you leave home but he really loves being around his human.

If River sounds like a good fit for your family and you are interested in adopting him please send an email to
