Hi my name is River! I'm a pitty mix. I was living life on the streets of San Antonio when my foster mama and I crossed paths! It was a hot afternoon and I was laying in a driveway panting. My foster mama stopped to share some water with me and saw that I had hundreds of itchy, ouchy, ticks all over me! A kind family had been feeding me for about three months but just didn't have the resources to take me in. They had little kids who I loved, they fed me french fries and I gave them lots and lots of kisses before departing on my rescue journey! They gave my foster mama a leash and we started the big walk back to her house. Fortunately for us, we were able to get a ride! It was so hot and my body was so depleted I just wanted to lay in the shade.

There are lots of dogs in my two foster houses and I get along with all of them! I love to play with toys and want to play with the other dogs but I'm still working on my confidence. Snuggles and kisses are my FAVORITE though. I could spend the whole day snuggled up on the couch with my human and giving them lots of kisses!

I do well in a crate and I'm learning how to walk politely on a leash. I also do well in the car and lay down quietly in the back. I'm a really content and easygoing gal, I'm just happy to be around and follow my foster mama and foster auntie around their houses and snuggle up once they sit down.


Great with other dogs (loves to play with the other pitty in her foster house)

Something to Consider:

  • Puppies don't train themselves

    If you aren’t willing to train a puppy every single day, don’t get a puppy! It isn’t a one-shot deal. You have to be dedicated. And if you aren’t making progress – find someone who can help. Enroll in a puppy training class or hire a trainer. Most cities across the nation have some sort of availability for this kind of help and at different cost levels that would fit your budget.

     

    Puppies are going to poop a lot and pee even more; chew on everything; bite everyone; scratch people and furniture; steal things; destroy something at some point; pull on the leash; not move at all on the leash; bark; cry; beg for attention; and the list goes on. You’re going to have to walk them, bathe them, pick up everything below waist height, buy new shoes, and most importantly: TRAIN THE PUPPY NOT TO DO THESE THINGS! Ultimately, it is your responsibility to teach your puppy that this behavior is unacceptable.

  • Puppies turn into dogs...
