Riaz is a little over a year old and spent that first year living outside with 30 other dogs. He was covered in fleas and ticks, and recently sprayed by a skunk. Despite his rough living Riaz remains a sweet young dog.
He loves living indoors, especially the air conditioning, and is doing really well learning house manners. He has not had an accident yet and sleeps perfectly in his crate. He gets along with other dogs and I think he would really like a doggy playmate. Riaz lives with other dogs both male and female and a resident cat. He is equal parts interested in the cat and scared of her.
At the moment he is working on leash manners and doing a wonderful job. He loves everyone he meets and has a lick and tail wag to greet them. Riaz even spent time with a 3 year old toddler and was very gentle and sweet.
He does have what looks to be an old injury that did not heal correctly making him walk with a funny little swagger. The foot injury doesn't cause him pain but he will likely not be a running or even long hiking partner. However if you want a dog you can take anywhere, dinner out, canoeing on Lady Bird Lake, camping, or just hanging out in your neighborhood this is your dog. If you are interested in setting up a playdate with him fill out an application today. This gorgeous boy won't be around long.
