THIS IS RIDLEY….a precocious, 13 lb, cream colored, 1-2 yr old Lhasa Mix.  Ridley was originally adopted from the SEAACA shelter to a family who wasn’t not right for him, so they gave him to us.  Ridley is a young, feisty dog, with a lot of energy and a little Lhasatude.  Don’t let that adorable face fool you!!  He is as loving and kissy as they get… loves dogs, people and toys.  But please don’t do something he doesn’t like or he will let you know!   While he likes kids, sometimes kids are not careful and for this reason, we believe an adult only home would be best.  He has two minor issues — he can be leash assertive (not hard to fix) and he doesn’t like to be moved without “notice.”  Both situations are easy to work with, but he needs boundaries and he needs to know that he is not the boss of you!  Anyone who knows the breed, knows this is not unusual!  He is a young dog and has been shuffled around from his original home to the shelter…to another home and now to rescue.  He needs training, patience and love and confidence…and he will be a model citizen.

Ridley LOVES to play with other dogs so another dog MUST be in his life.  He needs to be exercised and would love to go on hikes with you or he might even be good on a treadmill!  He would be best in a home with a yard, and not an apartment, as he does alert bark when he hears noises.  Does Ridley sound like a dog who could run away with your heart?  He’s available now 🙂

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
