Rika was an original Sauver Des Chiens dog. She was adopted out through our Paws for Patriots program in hopes of being trained as a Service Dog for a Veteran. Unfortunately, by no fault of her own, Rika was returned to us this summer for being “dog aggressive”. We have sent Rika through extensive training to work through her battles. She is what trainers call “dog REACTIVE” which is VERY different from dog AGGRESSIVE. Rika is working diligently on coexisting with other dogs. She would be a perfect asset to a home with no other animals, but in the meantime, she will continue her valued training to be less reactive to other dogs around her.

Rika is gorgeous and sweet, and she needs someone to love her through her minor issues. The only reason her original adopter couldn’t work her through those issues is in the case of meeting another dog in public. As a Service Dog, she cannot react, therefore, she is looking for a new home.
