🌟Meet Riley🌟

Riley is a 4 month old female German shepherd mix.  We think she’s potentially mixed with Australian cattle dog and/or Belgian Malinois, but not 100% certain.

PLEASE read her entire profile, if your family/living situation does not meet Riley’s needs, your application will not be considered.

Current weight – 30lbs

Full grown size – large, likely over 70lbs

Heartworm status – not tested due to age

Special medical 🏥 needs – needs to be spayed

🐶 friendly- yes with proper introduction. Gets along great with foster’s 2 dogs.

🐈 friendly- unknown

Kid friendly- yes, best with kids 10 and over due to her energy level and strength

House 🏠 Broken- about 90% there, needs to be let outside frequently to be successful but has kept her crate clean and dry for 6 hours overnight.

Crate trained- yes, goes in willingly with a treat and stays quiet

Leash trained- work in progress

Travels well in 🚗 – yes lays quietly when properly restrained in back seat

Energy level – (on a scale of 1-10, 1 being total couch 🥔 10 being the energizer 🐰) – typical puppy!  Probably about a 7/10.  She needs adequate exercise before she’s ready to relax and snuggle

Fenced yard required – yes, prey driven will chase after wildlife! 🐿️

Ideal family/ living situation- I think she would do best in a home with a job, farm dog, shop dog.  She focuses on her person intently and may make a good therapy dog.  Will do well in a very active family where someone is with her most of the time.  She is not the dog to leave home alone for 8 or more hours a day.  Someone in family should have working dog experience.

Favorite toys and activities. She loves playing 🎾 and keep away.  She will entertain herself with any stuffy and plays tug with other dogs.  Favorite all time activity is getting belly rubs!

Anything notable about personality – Riley is extremely smart 🤓and learns quickly. She is a typical working breed.  She is already very loyal and will probably require training.  Will do best with someone with experience with her breeds.
