Our newest Team Member is excited to meet you at the dealership and help you fall in love with your new vehicle.


I am super excited to come to work every day at Riley Subaru! I was born in Florida on November 26, 2018 and moved to Dubuque on December 21, 2020. It was my first sighting of snow, which made sniffing around the yard a little difficult. But I soon found out how fun it was to chase tennis balls in the snow!


My life started out as a pup with high hopes of becoming a highly specialized service dog by way of Southeastern Guide Dogs based in Palmetto, Florida. It is a non-profit organization that selectively breeds and expertly trains dogs like me to be guide and service animals. The best part is that my friends and I are matched with people who have vision loss and veterans with PTSD and other disabilities, at no cost to the recipient who needs our service and companionship.


After a 2-year training period, I decided that I did not like my harness enough to wear it all the time, so I was placed for adoption. And that is when the Riley's picked me up and drove me all the way home from Florida to Dubuque in a Subaru - what else!


I'll be sure to say hello to you when you are here. Feel free to pet me or rub my ears. I love meeting new people and showing off my dog toys.




P.S. If you are not comfortable with me wandering around and laying at your feet, please let a staff member know and I will hang out in the back office.


**Since 1982, Southeastern Guide Dogs has created over 3,200 guide and service dog teams, all provided by donations to people with vision loss and veterans with PTSD and other disabilities. Today Southeastern Guide Dogs has some of the most talented and innovative scientists and trainers and the most advanced training facilities of any service dog organization in the world.

Subaru is a proud philanthropic sponsor of this organization.
