Everyone, please meet RIVER. Believe it or not, River has been with us for 8 years. (no people, that is NOT a typo).
Way back in 2006, River was found on the levy of the Pearl River in Jackson, MS (behind YMCA at the end of Fortification Street) at the very feisty age of 6 months. After a dogged pursuit, River came to ARF and has been with us every since. Throughout those 8 years, River has been with us through thick and thin, moving facilities three times. He has watched as hundreds of dogs around him find homes, and yet every day, he holds out hope that he will finally be the companion that someone chooses. Now one of the senior dogs at our shelter, we are saddened by the idea that he may spend the rest of his years with us. While ARF is everything he has ever known, we truly believe that he deserves a home.....and an extra soft bed.
River is sweet, affectionate, and believed to have several more good years in him. He is neutered, up to date on shots, and weighs around 50 pounds.
We ask all of you: please share his story. 8 years is so long for someone to wait for anything..... but waiting 8 years for a home is heartbreaking.
