Rishi is such a joyful boy! He wants to be friends with all people and animals he meets, hoping to play with all of them. Now in foster care, he's extremely friendly with his new dog buddy, and he's friendly with dogs he sees on those walks he loves. And he's happy to play with all members of his foster family, including their two kids.

This sweet, playful boy is responding well to his training, learning to obey "sit." He's a house-trained boy who stays nicely in the backyard when his fosters are away. He's an easygoing, loving boy who can fit well in any home. He does love running in a fenced yard, so he will hope for that but he can be flexible if you get him out to stretch his legs. Come meet him. You'll be his new best friend!
