RILEY is a very sweet dog and would make a great hiking buddy as well as an affectionate family dog. He is very social and loves making dog friends and playing. He's a very happy pup and always trots very proudly. He looks like a Shepherd who's ears forgot to stand up :-) Riley has a hobby - he loves Dog TV! He really likes the videos that have the alarm clock sounds and the kids cheering :-) Riley also 'tap dances' :-) when he's standing in one place and happy (hard to explain, but it's very cute). This pup is neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped, and crate trained. We like to stay in touch with our adopters. We also offer Novice training in Abq. Our process is to start a conversation about this pup via email (DesertPawsNM@gmail.com), online application, meetgreet/home visit with family members (including current pets), trial adoption, stay in touch. We usually adopt in the ABQ, Santa Fe, Rio Rancho areas of NM.
