Riley came from a shelter in South Dakota. She was surrendered by an elderly couple who stated that they could no longer afford to care for her.
When Riley came to our rescue, she was missing patches of fur due to a skin infection. She also had and eye infection due to a case of untreated “Dry Eye”. Her ears also need medication for infections. Now that she has received proper medical treatment, her fur has grown back. Her ear infection is cleared up and her eyes have vastly improved. The medical term for Riley’s eye condition is Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca. This cannot be cured, only treated. She will need daily treatment for this condition for the rest of her life. Fortunately, Riley has responded well to the medication and the treatment is simple -- just a small amount of cyclosporine ointment needs to be applied daily to both eyes. The cyclosporine stimulates tear production. Riley also receives one pill a day for a low thyroid. This medication is inexpensive and she takes it with no difficulities.
Riley gets along with other dogs, but does tend to be a little bossy. This is often the case with female dogs that have been mothers. Her formers owners stated that Riley had produced a couple of litters before they bought her. Because of this, Riley will not be placed with other female dogs. She should be OK with a calm, male dog. At her current foster home she gets along with the two male dogs in the home, but has made it clear that she wants to be the one in charge.
Riley has been vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm checked and is spayed.
Riley does well with kids and has been around cats. Riley loves people and is quite well behaved.
