Riley's Big Day

The newest dog to join the ranks of BTRNC spent Saturday traveling across the state of North Carolina from his home in the mountains to the metropolis of Raleigh. With the help of 4 dedicated and tireless volunteers, Riley's journey was a smooth one.

The day began with BTRNC volunteer Petra who escorted Riley from Asheville to Charlotte. Petra reports "Riley is a beautiful Boston, inside and out, he will make someone a great dog. I had a hard time letting go, and I only knew him for 2 hours." We can also thank Petra for these action shots of Riley in transport.

Jennifer was the next volunteer kind enough to give Riley a lift from Charlotte to Greensboro.

In Greensboro, Riley met Terese who carried him to Durham. Terese remarks, "I wanted to take this little guy home myself."

In Durham, Riley met his kind-hearted foster mom, Brooke, who accompanied him home to Raleigh. After spending a few hours with this road-weary dog, Brooke writes in, "Riley-boy had a long day... He's settling in and doing great. He's a very sweet boy, and quite handsome. Don't you agree?" YES, we agree! We have Brooke to thank for this close up of Riley's mug.

Keep an eye on the BTRNC Available Dogs page, Riley will make an appearance very soon!

Four volunteers and one grateful dog. All in a day's work.
