This adorable little guy may be getting up there in years and have some issues with his vision but he’s not going to let that stop him ‘living the life of Riley’ and you’d go a long way before finding a more confident and well-behaved boy than he. Riley trots along quite happily on leash, never bumping into obstacles and sniffing and exploring just like any other dog and he seems to be house trained too. He’s spent time with children of all ages and is relaxed and gentle when playing, has lived in harmony with (and slept alongside) other small dogs and he’s even shared grooming sessions with a cat! Riley spends most of his time sleeping but he’s still excited to see his people and enjoys a good game of chase now and then. He knows how to sit for treats and take them very gently (admittedly, he doesn’t have many teeth to get in the way!) and though he doesn’t seek out snuggles, Riley does enjoy being petted and I can pick him up without so much as a whimper of complaint. Many small dogs tremble and shake when held by strangers but not this guy, he’s 14 years young and ready to embark on his next great adventure as your very own sidekick.
