Rylie is a very sweet senior girl, well-behaved and easy to take care of.  She takes treats nicely and enjoys shredding her stuffies.  She has moderate hip dysplasia of her right hip and arthritis on her right leg.  Due to her arthritis, she is not able to do stairs.  We are trying a new injection for pain management called Librela with her to see if it helps her mobility.  She is afraid of thunderstorms and fireworks.

Please note that we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care and our bios are our current observations; we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history and as such breed and age estimates are an educated guess.
