She loves her bed and to just hang with her people. Ryleigh walks well on a leash and travels well in a car. She is house and crate trained. She will not counter surf and takes food and treats very gently. She does well with large male dogs but will bully another female if given the opportunity so she will only be placed with males.
Her history with small children is unknown so she will not be placed with any. Cats are unknown but given her prey drive for rabbits she probably won’t do well with cats. Ryleigh did not deserve to be discarded by her family after 5 years of her love and devotion. She needs a family who will show her the love and commitment to the end of her life that every dog should know.
Ryleigh was overweight when she returned and we are working on getting her back to a trimmer slimmer girl. She will need exercise and a strict diet. She is tolerant of baths and nail trims which is very good as her nails need to be gradually trimmed to a more reasonable length. Ryleigh came back to MAGDRL in June 2016.
