10 year old River was so timid at the shelter he would cower on the ground. Now, he goes to work every day and runs free at a garden nursery!! River got ADOPTED!! 🐶☀️🌸😍 In River's original post we shared that he is a very shy dog, but also the guy who wouldn't hurt a fly. The shelter staff knew he would need an extra boost for exposure since River was so shut down. When Debra saw River's first post she immediately stepped up to adopt him. She runs Riverdale Nursey in Knoxville, TN and knew River would fit right in. And that he does! River gets more and more brave with each passing day, and we can only imagine how much more confident and happy he feels already. And best of all, he'll always feel LOVE! 😍🙌🏽 Debra wrote, "River has been here just ten days and he is fitting right in and a very happy boy. He works with us everyday. He is slowly getting used to the crew and being more and more trusting of them. We are all so happy he is here!
I have a real interest in the senior dog rescue concept and that's what made me pick River. He is 10 years old, black, and looked like he might have some pit bull in him. All strikes against adoption. Mostly I just take any in dire need dogs. Two of my dogs I have had been kept on chains, and two are small dogs whose families decided they couldn't keep. One of the small dogs is old, deaf, and has only half her teeth left. They all come to work with me at the #nursery everyday and get along well. There is so much love and abundance that they don't need to be greedy. I think River will thrive here. We are dedicated to make it so!" ❤️ #seniordog #adopted #happydog #thriving #thegoodlife #adoptdontshop
