Pet Of The Week – Ryleigh

We’d like to introduce you to Ryleigh! Ryleigh is a 5-year old Cattle Dog mix, who with her gorgeous coat of red, chestnut and cream, is quite a beautiful girl. At only 45 pounds, Ryleigh is a perfect medium size .. and this pretty girl is just as sweet on the inside as she is beautiful on the outside.

Before coming to Green Hills Animal Shelter in early July, Ryleigh had a home of her own with a human who loved her very much. But life sadly changed for Ryleigh when the young man who filled Ryleigh’s life with love and joy passed away. Ryleigh took the loss of her friend very hard, and at first she found the shelter, which looked, sounded and smelled nothing like home, to be a scary place. However, with a lot of love from the shelter staff and volunteers, Ryleigh is rebounding and she is rediscovering the hope and joy that she is so full of.

Ryleigh is a very sweet girl who genuinely loves people and who shares her whole heart with the people she loves. She loves just being with you, and would be a great sidekick for someone looking for a true best friend. Ryleigh also loves to play and, true to her breed, she is quite a smart girl. In her previous home Ryleigh was an indoor doggy and she is already housetrained.

If Ryleigh could describe her perfect Forever Home, she would ask for a loving, patient environment where she could spend lots of time with her family while she is getting used to her new home. She would very much enjoy being a farm dog where she could spend her days going everywhere with her special person and then spend her evenings curled up at their feet in the house. (Remember, Ryleigh is used to being inside and is already house-trained.) She would also enjoy sharing her home with children.

Ryleigh will go to her Forever Home spayed, de-wormed, heartworm tested, and up to date on all vaccinations including rabies. She has been through a lot, but is ready and longing to share her heart with a new family; could that family be yours?
