Riley, a male medium-sized mixed breed dog, was one of the stars of the recent Gilbert Days Parade, where he “sang,” acted cute, and cuddled with the volunteers from Friends for Life. He’s come a long way since being rescued from a reservation in northern Arizona where he was starving and suffering from tick fever. About 1 or 2 years old, he is proving himself to be full of personality, the folks at Friends for Life say.
Other than the tick fever, Riley is very healthy now and can go home as a foster to adopt until he’s finished with his medicine, according to a release from Friends for Life. He has lived in a foster home and his foster mom says he’s been sweet, loves getting his food regularly, and loves being around people.
Riley is neutered, microchipped, and current on vaccinations. If you’d like to meet Riley contact Friends for Life at (480) 497-8296 or visit http://www.azfriends.org/ online.
