We were contacted about Riley from our friends at a rural West Tennessee shelter. She had been a stray for 3 weeks at someone’s house. They had a German Shepherd who wouldn’t accept her. The shelter was freaking her out. Her body language showed she was just scared. She probably needed a calm environment to decompress. Thankfully our transporter picked her up right away, as the shelter is under renovation and has no water. She is a precious little Golden mix. She can be a bit fearful of other dogs, especially when they get right in her face, but warms up as soon as she knows that she is safe. Probably a result of the German Shepherd not being too nice to her. She definitely loves people- men and women! She is already a favorite of our clinical staff who report that she is wonderful. We can’t wait for her to blossom in her foster home.
