River believes strangers are friends you haven't met yet. She's excited to greet new pups and people, loves to play with her squeaky toys with her humans, and is always down to cuddle. Thanks to the generous folks at North Star K9 Training, she's been practicing how to reel in her walk energies and stop to smell the roses. She's working hard to grow her confidence and independence every day. River is outdoorsy as her name suggests, but will happily snuggle up to you on the couch all day. Her snaggle tooth and delectably puffy cheeks are just the tip of her spunk. She would do well in a home ready for her residual puppy energy and love.
