Adoption Alert ~ Riley #2666 - Adoption in Progress

Hi everyone…my name is Riley and I’m almost two years old.  I recently had an operation for a very wonky leg and now I only have three of them.  Oh well…to paraphrase Meatloaf, “Three out of four ain’t bad” ~ teehee.  I came from Istanbul not long ago and don’t ask me how I got here but here I am and I’m very happy I am.  Everyone has been so good to me.  I have been treated so well.  The doc Golden Rescue sent me to has nursed me back to health after a tough street life and they found a solution so I don’t have to drag my sore leg all the time ~ I am SO grateful.  My fantastic foster mom says I’m very sweet, laid back, cuddly, and a total charmer.  I understand that I’m only passing through this lovely Canadian home so with a bit of luck, I will soon find my forever family.  How did I get so lucky?  I’d better tell you a little about myself so here goes ~ I’m from a land far, far away.  I now have three legs but I’m getting around just fine.  I’m not a big barker and I can be left alone if you need to do stuff without me.  I know my commands and I’m pretty good on the leash.  I’m gentle with my treats and loud noises don’t bother me.  I love people, especially Canadians ~ teehee.  Other dogs are also fine with me although I’m not a fan of alpha or aggressive dogs.  I’m not a high energy boy.  Mind you, since I have been here, my leg has been sore and I went through a pretty big operation so my energy level might increase once I’m 100% healed.  For now, my favourite thing is being close to people and cuddling on the couch.  Hey, what’s wrong with that?  That’s a million times better than what I was used to and I suspect life is going to get even better!
