Adoptable Dog of the Week – River

Who could possibly resist this adorable face? We know we can’t, that’s for sure! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is River, a 5 year old Miniature Schnauzer mix from Bloomington, Illinois. She has been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm checked, and dewormed. River is looking for a home without kids, cats, or other dogs.


River’s Tale


This cute little bundle of fur weighs only 14 pounds and her ideal owner would be a homebody who is looking for a lapdog to love. She would do best in a home with a single owner or a couple set on spoiling a pooch like their furbaby. River is not good around strangers and would need a family that doesn’t have visitors often – as when they do, River must be in another room. She can also be a bit of a barker, so might not be the best pet for an apartment building where neighbors could complain.


Even so, River is a sweet soul that will return all your affection tenfold. She is sweet and cuddly and will love nothing more than to spend time with you. A true tiny lapdog, this gal will fit right in your lap and won’t want to leave it! A perfect dog for people that want a cuddle bug and a velcro pooch by their side. A companion that will share all their adventures with them and be their four-legged bestie for years to come. River needs a home without children, cats, or other dogs and preferably a low-traffic home at that.


If River, with her quirks and her charms, sounds like she would fit in perfectly with your lifestyle, contact Wish Bone Canine Rescue for more information about her and the adoption process. Fingers crossed – she’s a special pooch that deserves special people to love and cherish her.
