Riley’s Waggin’ Tail Club membership story is one that is very special to many people for many reasons.  First of all, Riley is just one of the sweetest dogs you will ever meet.  Her trip to the local kill shelter was very traumatic and frightening for her, so she shut down as a way to deal with that fear.  It took her a while to open up and show us who she really was.  Secondly, Riley’s new dad, Vincent, is not only one of the nicest and most caring men we have ever met, but he is also a veteran who was wounded serving our country.  When we found out he has waited 9 long years to find his perfect companion, we knew he was serious about his search for the right fit.  Vincent was able to tell that Riley was the dog for him from reading her bio.  By the time we all finally met, many of the VSR volunteers were moved to tears by this wonderful man.  Being able to put a face to the emails we had saved and shared was something we couldn’t wait to do.  Vincent also very kindly shared his stories and some of his German Shepherd knowledge with us.  Riley, you are truly an amazing dog.  You are everything Vincent wanted and more.  And when you can give back to a man who has served our country like Vincent has, it really makes your heart happy.  So as you and Vincent start out on this journey together, remember to wag on, Miss Riley.  Wag on.  Click here for more photos!
