This beauty is Riley, and she is one spectacular pup! Riley turned 1 year old in March, and already she has the smarts and training skills of a much more mature dog. Riley knows basic commands like sit, paw, down, and stay. She is reliably house trained and crate trained, and she has great house manners. Riley's Rattie family tree may have have contained some Jack Russell and/or Basenji members; she certainly has the intelligence and, at 23 lbs., the build and physical strength characteristic of those breeds (not to mention a tail that curls over her back). Riley is very athletic, and she runs with both grace and speed. Riley walks well on a leash on a hiking trail but can be a little overwhelmed when leash walking in more urban environments. She would thrive as a suburban or country dog with lots of fenced area for her to run free like the wind. Riley is good with dogs her size and smaller, but she is apprehensive about larger dogs. She seems to like playing and snuggling with people just as much as with her small dog friends, so she would be just fine as an only dog. Riley is friendly with new women and takes a few more minutes to warm up to men, but once she feels comfortable, she is very sweet and lovable. In her past, Riley had some trouble being startled by young children, so she seeks a home without little ones. If you are looking for an energetic, loyal, amazing friend, your search can stop here with this stunning gal!
