Story
Riley is a lovable loyal protective companion I’ve had for 4 years. She loves to play ball and fetch all day of you let her as well as plays in the snow for hours. She is smart and witty and loves to be around her humans. She is not good with other dogs or people she doesn’t know she has a lot of aggression that is fear based. She’s not bitten anyone but does give warning signs. She has had some training but due to life circumstances I cannot keep up with the training and she does have a shock collar only used when there will be people she doesn’t know and she is crate trained. overall she deserves the best life I now cannot give her.
