About Riley


It took several hours before anyone could corral Riley: he just could not believe his owner would abandon him behind AALOC. Riley just kept howling mournfully and would not respond to people who tried to get him to come towards them. He kept looking for his someone special to come back for him - but they never did. Animal Control picked him up instead. No one claimed him, no one cared, except for one of our volunteers who made arrangements to have Riley come to AALOC.

DNA testing reports that Riley is a Husky/American Staffordshire terrier mix and he weighs in at about 67 pounds. In general Huskies are intelligent, alert, outgoing, friendly and energetic. Typical traits of a Staffordshire terrier include tenacity, devotion, loyalty, attentiveness and courage. We think Riley demonstrates all of the above!

Riley is a handsome, particularly smart dog that loves to play, go for walks, and meet new people. He is also a strong, quick dog that needs regular exercise of both his mind and body. Riley has been through special obedience training but still needs to be adopted by an experienced dog owner willing to provide the attention and patience Riley will need. Discipline and exercise, in conjunction with affection, is a must. An adult home is also required and Riley would not be a good companion around any small animals, although he might do well with a large female dog.

If you feel you can provide the guidance and care Riley needs, please submit an application to adopt Riley. Once your application is reviewed and approved we will contact you to make an appointment to visit us at AALOC to meet Riley during visiting hours (10am to 3pm daily) and get to know him a bit. Riley really is a special guy that needs a forever home and an owner to love.
