    “Hi I am River! I am a calm, loving girl with big golden eyes and little velvet-soft ears. I’m a young mum, who is a little on the skinny side as I had to keep my pups nice and chunky, so I will need to gain a bit of weight to get me back into tiptop shape!

    I am still a little timid meeting new people, but give me a day or two and I’ll warm right up to you. I like going for walks and rarely pull – in fact I like to stick right by your side in case those big scary bunnies are out. I don’t chase them, but I like to keep my eye on them. My foster parents tried me in a crate during the evening and it wasn’t my favourite thing, so they just closed the bedroom door and I got to snuggle with them all night!

    During the day I generally have free run of the house, but my foster parents have been careful to keep the yummy snacks off the counter – I may be skinny, but I’ve got a good nose and like to see what is up there! I haven’t chewed anything (not even any of the toys my foster got me!) or had any accidents in the house. I’m a quiet girl, but will let you know when I need to go out. I am currently learning to “sit” which earns me a kibble or two. I LOVE my food! I get super excited when it is meal time! I am also super gentle when taking treats.

    I haven’t met any other animals while in foster, but I’ve been curious of the dogs we’ve passed on our walks so I may be ok with a similar-sized, well-mannered dog who can bring me out my shell a bit more. If you are looking for a beautiful, loving pup, I’m your girl!” xo, River
