Rescue Dog of the Week

Hello there! My name is Riva. Riva is Turkish for “worthy”. Did you know that? Wow! That makes me feel pretty good. At first, I was a chained dog. No fun at all. Then it was the shelter. Boy, it was so uncomfortable and noisy there and I was always very hungry. So I was so glad when someone came to get me out of there because they thought I was worthy. That was a very happy day for me!

Since then I have been eating good meals, I’ve attended “finishing school” and really enjoy running and playing in a big yard. I am told that I have turned into a beautiful girl since I have put on some muscle and much needed weight. I love to hear people say that! I think that my ears are the prettiest part about me. I am very proud of them. They say I have very soft fur and I think they are right!

I have heard about some dogs going to live in a home of their very own and I think that would be a terrific idea. I would love to have a home to call my own and be able to have someone around me all the time. I would love to cuddle and play with them and go for long walks. But please, no cats! Deal?

I dream of the day that I get to meet that special person who thinks I will be the right one for their family. Until then, I will be chasing down leaves and squirrels in my playground so please stop by to say hi!

Riva is a striking white American Pit Bull Terrier mix with delicate tan markings and gorgeous candle flame ears. She is almost 5 years old and is a true lady around the house. No pesky puppy antics for her! She is spayed, up to date on routine shots, and housetrained.

Currently in our boarding facility in Houston, Texas, Riva would really enjoy spending some time in a loving foster home as she waits for a home of her very own. Will you consider becoming her foster? You would enjoy her great company for a little while and you would always be glad you helped her this way. If you would like to foster Riva, please let us know by sending us an email at [email protected].

If you are interested in meeting Riva, please go to Treat ‘Em Right Rescue and fill out an application for her. We will be glad to make arrangements for your visit and Riva will be sure to give you a big “Hello!” Thank you!
