Riley needs a home

Allen County SPCA
Ain't nothin' but a hound dog.

Riley is a 6-year-old tricolor beagle hound blend.

"So why adopt a hound, you ask? Besides our ultra cute faces, we love finding adventure in life (even walks count), we require minimal grooming, and we're super smart (which is why we love to be trained) and affectionate.

"That must be why we are the most beloved breeds of dog around the world. For a limited time, all of our hounds have a reduced adoption fee of $50.

"Do you love to explore as much as I do? I'm part beagle and I love using my nose to find new things. But don't worry – that doesn't mean I'm type A. I'm actually a super laid back guy with a mellow attitude. So mellow, in fact, that I've even been allowed to hang out in the director's office.

"(That must mean I'm pretty smart, too, right?) I'm having a blast in her office, but I bet I'd have a ton more fun coming home with you.

"Just think how much exploring we could do together. I can't wait until that happens!"

He is available for adoption at the Allen County SPCA, 4914 Hanna St.

The shelter is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
