Riley is a 1 year old boy, who we believe a Chihuahua/Italian greyhound mix. He was surrendered to a shelter with a broken and infected hind leg which could not be repaired. His leg had to be amputated, but despite only having 3 legs now, this has not affected him at all. He loves to go for walks, and is the fastest runner in his foster family. Riley is a very lovable, playful, sweet and happy boy. He loves to cuddle and is the perfect lap dog. He is great with kids, cats and other dogs.  He will make an amazing addition to any family. 

Riley completed training through UnChained ( ) and is ready for a forever home! During this wonderful program, he is learning things such as: Sit, Lie Down, Stay, Shake, Recall, Loose-leash walking, and agility course work. The program manager reports "He's doing really well in class.  A true genius!  His Youth Trainer refers to him as a "hustler", as he knows how to get what he wants. :)"
