Meet baby River!

This sweet boy ventured to Maine from our rescue partner in Georgia and has melted our hearts since arrival, we know he'll do the same to his forever family! River would love to join a family, that will love him just as much as he will love them. River can be quite nervous meeting new people, and moving to new environments but with some time, and help from his new family he'll settle in pretty quick! (especially if you got some yummy snacks, and squeaky toys to offer him.)

According to his foster home, he appears to be house broken and crate-trained. Of course, that will be something that will have to be worked on in his new home as he adjusts to your schedule and routine.

River would benefit from a home that will help him build his confidence so as he grows older he can learn to understand that the world isn't so bad after all. After a good decompression period, and allowing him to settle into his new family and your routine – exposing him slowly to new things, and people will surely help him over time feel better and more comfortable about his everyday life. Our adoption team is super happy to provide his new family with more tips and fun things to do to help this boy out! We can't wait to see him succeed!

River would do well with another confident dog in home to help him with his confidence, and learning the ropes in the new home! He will not do well with cats in home. River would do well with kiddo siblings, as long as they can respect his time and space while he is adjusting to his new home! We would love River to meet everyone in the family, prior to going home, including any canine siblings!

Please come in and meet this sweet boy, if you think he'd be a great addition to your family!
