River is a large chocolate lab who was surrendered to a Tennessee shelter in his golden years. River has settled quickly into his foster home. Perhaps traumatized by being left at a shelter, or perhaps just claustrophobic, River does not like to be crated. But he has good house manners, only occasionally letting his nose tempt him to help himself to food left within reach. He walks pretty well on leash and very much enjoys his walks. River gets along with dogs but does like his space. We are told he cannot live with cats. River seems fine with children. He loves attention and gets quite goofy, but doesn’t demand it. He is content to relax, sleep and enjoy the comforts of home. He is completely house trained. River is hoping for a safe and happy home where he can live out his life being loved.
