Meet: Riley

Riley is our new-to-us boxer dog.  We've waited YEARS to get a dog; it never seemed to be the right time.

Well, our waiting is over.

We have many friends with boxers and we knew we wanted to adopt from a rescue organization that fosters their dogs to families rather than keeps them at a shelter somewhere.  Since we have younger kids and a cat, we had to wait a while before a dog became available that wouldn't harass one or the other.

Riley was found as a stray.  He's an estimated three years old and was super skinny when brought into the rescue.  He still has about ten pounds or so to gain to fill out all the way, but we're getting him there.

At some point in the near-ish future, we'll probably get another one.  We'll wait until the time is right, and until then continue to get to know Riley.
