Introducing Riggins, a handsome house-trained young dog. Riggins looks like a big tough guy, but in reality, he is just a big sweetheart! Riggins loves to play fetch with his rubber bone and squeak his toy and chase it around. However, Riggins is very quick to ask for some belly rubs and cuddles.

Riggins has a lot of puppy energy and he loves to burn it off by jumping around the backyard or going on a walk through the neighborhood. He is always excited to meet new people and wants to greet everyone he sees. He's working on containing his excitement and perfecting his manners with new people. He also loves anything that squeaks and chewing on a bone after a long day of naps and playing.

Riggins does very well in his crate. He is potty-trained and knows how to tell his humans it's time to go out. This smart pup loves puzzle toys and learning new commands.

Riggins enjoys spending time with his foster's resident dog, and would do well in a home with or without other pets. He will love humans who give equal parts adventure and quiet snuggles. Do you have room in your heart and a place in your home for the handsome, playful Riggins? Come meet him today!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

This pup is currently located at our Town Lake Animal Center (1156 W. Cesar Chavez, but use 1200 Reserve Road for mapping purposes). We'd love to show them off to you! To learn more about them, head in any day between 12:00PM - 6:00PM. We are open 7 days a week! Go to Building B and ask to speak with a Matchmaker about fostering this pup. You will sit down and discuss all we know about them and, if it's a good fit, get to meet them then! Please budget for a wait time unless you arrive right at opening as we cannot dictate walk-in traffic (wait times tend to be highest in the evenings and on weekends). If this pup ends up not being the best fit, we have so many other pups in need that we can suggest for your household on the spot!
