One the the toughest moments of my day at the shelter today was having to return RISA (A1759613) to her kennel and then walking by it and seeing her angelic face staring at me through the bars. RISA entered the East Valley Animal Shelter as a stray, and is being treated for bite wounds. There is no way to know what she endured either in a previous home or roaming the streets, but what everyone who has met RISA can tell you is that she is one of the sweetest, gentlest dogs who simply wants to be loved. RISA is estimated to be 2-1/2-years-old; she walks well on leash; she is treat-motivated and takes treats very gently; and she appears to be somewhat submissive. The shelter is at 14409 Vanowen St., Van Nuys, CA. Rise and rescue/adopt RISA!
