Riggs (formerly Dennis)
"My husband and I came to the Irving Animal Shelter in December to check it out, thinking we may get a dog soon. There was a beagle mix called Dennis in a kennel with a pregnant beagle, and he just looked up at us, tail wagging, and it was all over.
"He goes by the name Riggs now and is SO happy, all the time. He is so sweet, even little kids can run up and pet his face, all he does is wag his tail.
"He's quiet, gentle, and playful, and just wants to be near someone. We're not sure why he was on the street, but we're so happy that he found his way into our hearts!
"Thanks to the Irving Animal Services for taking care of him until we got him!"
