Riley's Story...
UPDATE FROM THE FOSTER: August, 2016

Riley is a wonderful dog. He is very devoted and quite affectionate, and cuter than heck.

He has attached himself to me and I have become his focus in life. He has what we call “separation anxiety” He does not like me to be out of his sight and will whine if I am. I do not believe that he continually whines while I am gone, but he always has other dogs here to keep him company. On the flipside, he is so overjoyed to see me when I return, that he all but loses it trying to bathe me in kisses. This is not uncommon with rescue dogs, and I know that he will transfer this focus to whoever adopts him.

Riley has some fear issues and although he warms up to some people right away, others he is very wary of and will bark at and sometimes even attempt to nip when sufficiently frightened. He actually has no teeth (they had to be removed), so he can’t do any real harm, but I do think that makes him innapropriate for young children, and needs to be with somebody who will help him with this issue.

It’s worth noting that I take him with me to work at The Animal House Pet Supply in SF and he does quite well, meeting many people and dogs throughout the day, with the occaisional exception. He is tremendous with other dogs, by the way, loves long walks and is small enough to easily travel everywhere.

So overall, I would say that Riley is very affectionate, but will thrive with a special person who will keep him safe and work with him.

Riley is a 6 year old terrier mix. He is around 7 pounds, a compact little guy! Riley is “move in” ready 🙂 He is potty-trained, good with people, other dogs, and could not care less about cats.

Riley looks like he is a Yorkie mix. He is very sweet and easy going, a perfect little companion. If you would like to meet Riley please submit an application to adopt!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Riley, a San Francisco Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Chihuahua for sale in San Francisco, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in San Francisco.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Francisco already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a San Francisco breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Chihuahua breeders who help with Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Francisco paves the way for another one to be saved.
