From the owners: “We were looking for a dog for a family with allergies. A good friend called to say that Riley was available for adoption from a family with many kids, dogs, and horses. His parents were show dogs. He was 35 pounds of fluff at three months. Riley is nine now and tips the scales at around 80 pounds. As a member of the smart poodle clan, he has us totally well-trained. We are over-the-moon in love with him.
A typical day? Riley goes in and out four thousand times.
