At 5 years old, Riley the Terrier Mix has grown into a well-mannered gentleman. This sweet, mellow, friendly guy has an honest face you can read like a book. Scratch his ears and the adoring look on Riley’s face will make you blush. Give Riley the belly rubs he enjoys so much and you’ll witness a dog turning into putty right before your eyes. Riley is an incredibly snuggly dog — all he wants in life is to be as close to his people. He likes being held, hugged, and kissed and will return the favor. He loves to curl up in the curve of your stomach to snuggle. Riley likes sitting on your lap. He enjoys outings with his people and rides well in the car. Riley would also be more than satisfied with a 20-minute daily walk. He walks great on a leash as long as you don’t mind giving him opportunities to roll around on the grass.

Nikos Kazantzakis was a Greek writer and philosopher who penned the fabled book, “Zorba the Greek,” which would later become a treasured film starring Anthony Quinn. A second book of his was also adapted by Hollywood: “The Last Temptation of Christ,” a Scorsese flick that got Christians all over North America up in arms (Not to mention that the original book got poor Nikos excommunicated from his beloved Greek Orthodox Church).
