Reston Pet of the Week: River

Becky's Pet Care

Meet River, an older dog who is this week’s Reston Pet of the Week. Here is what his friends at Homeward Trails Animal Rescue have to say about him:

River is an adorable male lab mix. Our best guess the mix includes American Bulldog. He’s estimated to be about 7 years old.

River is a gentle giant, weighing in at 70 lbs., thogh he probably could stand to shed a pound or two. River is as sweet as sweet gets. His favorite thing is belly rubs and relaxing.

As he’s an older gentleman, he’s pretty calm but he still enjoys playing with his toys! He likes to play catch with a ball and he knows basic commands like sit, come, stay. He is house trained. He’s a wonderful boy and he gets along well with other dogs and seems fine with cats.

This nice boy somehow lost his home — he was brought to a rural shelter as a stray.

River’s adoption fee is $300. If you are interested please visit Homeward Trails to fill out an adoption form at email it to [email protected]. You can also request to meet a Homeless Trail animal at an adoption event HT holds every Saturday and Sunday at the at the Homeward Trails Adoption Center, 11116 Fairfax Station Road, Fairfax Station.
