#3277 Riley

ID #: 3277 Age: 1 yr Gender: female Status: Adopted

Hi…my name is Riley and I’m a one-year-old girl.  Let me tell you a bit about myself or, as the saying goes, the Life of Riley.  My original owner, who I loved, got sick and couldn’t look after me anymore so the good people of Golden Rescue jumped in to help.  It has been difficult for me because I miss my owner dearly but don’t get me wrong…my amazing foster family are fantastic and I’m having the time of my life.  But I do have this thing called ‘separation anxiety’.  I’m taking mild medication for this and it is certainly helping, but I just hate to be left alone.  In time, this may fade but for now I need to be with someone who is around most of the time.  I love other dogs so a home with a friend I could play with would be amazing.  I pretty much love everyone I meet ~ humans, children, dogs, and even cats are fine with me, although if they are runners I’d probably chase them…not to hurt them but to play with them.  I love my exercise so a big fenced back yard to run around in would be great.  I would also like to share your bed, if that’s okay with you as I’m a real cuddler.  I’m learning my commands well but I could use more work on the leash and the jumping up thing when I get excited ~ but even those are improving because I’m smart and just want to please.  I was in a car accident when I was eight months old and broke my pelvis but it has totally healed now and I’m fine and the doc says I’m a healthy girl.  There is a possibility I could get some arthritis when I get older; however, right now I’m as fit as a fiddle (I don’t understand that saying ~ teehee).  You might be wondering, but I’m fine in the car so my accident hasn’t left me afraid of it.  So, that’s my story.  I’m told I am ready to find my forever family so if you’d like to meet me, just call out my name and you know wherever I am, I’ll come running…

Riley is currently being fostered in the Burlington, ON area. If you would like more information about Riley please call our hot-line toll free at 1-866-712-8444 or email and one of our volunteers will be happy to return your call.
