More people need to open their eyes to the potential in ALL Living Beings...and STOP assuming such a Negative Outlook.
THIS is one of those Happy Endings...because someone could SEE past assumptions

Noted I hate that so many animals are never given a chance to show what they can do.

Well done Riley, Wonder how many other dogs that are put to sleep every day could be a dog like Riley. Good luck to both dog and new partener for the future.
