Tricks: This guy has a very bright mind, you can see him just soak everything in, someone loved this guy at one time. He is a people pleaser.
Other Info: Update 3/22/17 Spending time with granddaughter and our Riggs just had a blast with her playing fetch. He will do great with kids 8 and up. Update 3/21/17, Riggs loves to play, I can't tell you how sweet this guy is. When I give him a hug he lifts his head into me and make small grunting noise that just make my heart melt. Update 3/16/17, This guy doesn't know a stranger, good with dogs, absolutely loves to chew on his tennis ball, will fetch and give it up nicely. He is being crate trained, although he will protest for a short time, he sleeps all night quietly. Another super sweet guy for me to foster, thank you!! Still new to rescue and will update as we get to know this guy. If interested please call to complete adoption form as our system is down.
