Riley is a lovable male Labrador retriever and border collie mix staying at Argos, A Shelter Dog Rescue.
Riley loves to socialize — he gets along well with other dogs. He has mastered his house-training etiquette, and he's neutered and vaccinated.
Riley's current caretakers say:
Riley is a 4-1/2-year-old with personality-plus. He loves toys and spending time with anyone who will give him even the slightest bit of attention.
