River is just 5 mo old , he is weighing in at 27pounds with those long legs he has!!  We believe him to be a heeler/pointer mix. He is good with other dogs, kids. Cats unknown BUT he is a baby.. All puppy protocols apply, training, housebreaking, introductions, boundaries you get the picture. Please make sure you are READY for a puppy.

 River is in foster at this time.. He is buds with a large and a small dog and is fantastic with both!!! He would do better with another canine playmate to match his energy level. That means no seniors please as he will be too active for their playstyle. He does not require another dog in the house however, he will be sitting at your side wanting your undivided attention, and we do feel that puppies do better with playmates of their own kind. All age appropriate shots have been done, he has been wormed.

  He is a FUN LOVING guy!! Kid are great, cats are fine. He does require a fenced in yard, and he loves to run around!! He is very active, and loves to play. Toys are always in his world, please make sure you have plenty around!!! He learns easily, is very smart. House trained for the most part, remember he is STILL a baby!! He is crate trained and knows to go in the crate by himself . He has not had any accidents in the house since we have had him. Still figuring out that jumping on people isnt a good thing. Working on that, but with training, it will come. ALL PUPPIES NEED TRAINING AND PATIENCE. He will need to attend a puppy class once settled in his new home. 

   He will be great as a second dog to add to your active family. So if you fit the bill, have an active family as in hiking, camping, running, boating kayaking etc, have another active dog and are ready to welcome a great puppy into your home, please look at RIVER!! He is ready to go. Currently fostered in the Bradenton area. River will be WAITING!!!
