Rif Raf

Rif Raf (Riffy) is an adult male who came from a northern community. As he was severely matted, he was shaved right down. We suspect he is probably low shedding but can't guarantee it. Riffy weighs under 10 pounds and is likely between 4 and 6 years old.

Rif follows his foster mom around like a shadow. He likes to be picked up and snuggled and is always underfoot. With the weather being so cold and his lack of fur, he hasn't experienced walks yet but we are sure he will enjoy those once it warms up!

There are other dogs in Rif's foster home and he has been fine with them. He will warn the puppy if he is too rambunctious in his face so would probably be best suited to another dog that is not going to be a pest. He has not been cat tested but we suspect he would be fine with them.

Riffy is looking for an adult home without permanent young children. He's a retired kind of dude looking to live that lifestyle. Families that are home the majority of the time would be his best match but he can be left alone for errands and other outings without an issue.

Rif needs a family dedicated to continuing house training. We have worked on a foundation, but it will be ongoing as he learns to be an inside dog. The cold weather does present challenges but by restricting his access to the hidden areas of the house and keeping to a schedule, Rif is figuring it out.

Riffy is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Like most small dogs, families should budget for a preventative dental in the next 2-3 years. If you would like to add Riffy to your family, please Click Here for our adoption form!
