Need a new best friend? Riri might be the girl for you! She is 10 years old and has been living at the Animal Protection Society of Durham since Aug. 17, 2022. Riri has been able to spend time with some foster families over the past few months, and she is the perfect house guest. Riri has great manners and never makes a mess. You will hardly hear a peep out of her, and she will only join you on the furniture if invited. Riri has enjoyed some time in the great outdoors and has done really well during interactions with other dogs; she usually doesn’t pay them much attention. Riri is heart worm positive and needs things kept pretty mellow, but that’s just fine with her! She’s the kind of girl that likes to lay in the sunshine and watch life pass by. Riri would be the perfect addition for a laid-back family. Come meet her today!

Kids: 8+, anxious
Dogs: Intense/stiff at first, some sniffing, then ignores. Slow/careful intros.

Riri is currently in foster care. If you want to meet her, submit an application at this link. Once it is screened, then a meet and greet will be set up with the foster family.

Riri’s adoption fee has been waived!
