With input from our friends at Homeward Pet we are featuring a dog that needs a loving home.

Please be aware that our pets of the week may be adopted at any time, and the shelter does not always let us know when this happens.

If you’re looking for a best friend, River is the guy. River is extremely loyal to his people and bonds strongly. And not only that, but he’s one of the snuggliest pups to ever come through these doors!

River is a three and a half year old German Shepherd/Lab mix who loves to go for walks, explore the great outdoors and cuddle with his companion. And he takes his snuggles very seriously – his favorite move is to nuzzle his head into his person’s neck.

Unfortunately River had to lose a leg, but it hasn’t slowed him down! River doesn’t know he’s any different from the other dogs and gets around just fine.

Because he gets so attached to his people, he’s looking for an adult only home and to be the only furry family member – he doesn’t want to compete for any pets or affection.

River is here waiting for his new side kick – maybe that’s you!

Homeward Pet is located at 13132 NE 177th Place in Woodinville and is open for visitors between 12pm and 6pm, Wednesday through Sunday.
