*All of our rescue dogs are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations and microchipped prior to their adoption.*
Raider was in Stanislaus County shelter and on the adoption floor but with no applications pending, his time was "up" as of Friday. The wonderful staff reached out to us and with help from some amazing transport volunteers we all worked together and his life was spared in the nick of time! Now a Pit Crew pup, he will get settled in and be available for foster or adoption soon! Your time will NEVER expire here sweet boy!
11/28/2015 Please share Raider! He is such a fun playful pup! He is settling in and eager to learn! We are still looking for a foster or furever home! If you would be interested in either, please fill out the appropriate application
12/22/2015 Foster update, "Raider is the perfect sidekick kind of dog. He loves to go places and make new friends while showing off his tricks. He walks well on leash and sits politely whenever you stop. His handsome good looks and flirty charm make him a big hit wherever he goes. He is always up for a hike, walk or playing games, but he also likes cuddling on the couch and watching TV" If you are interested in meeting Raider please go to fill an adoption application.
01/02/2015 Foster update, "Raider thinks the only thing more fun than toys, leaves and running around, would be a family of his own to share the joy with. He loves to prance around proudly with his treasures, but is more than happy to share them with you too, just so you don't miss out on the game. For such an enthusiastic boy, he has a lovely soft side and is always ready to cuddle when it is down time." If you are interested in meeting Raider please go fill an application
02/26/2016 "Rainy days are the best!!! I love snuggling on the couch and watching TV!! Foster Mom says I am the best house dog and have excellent manners. I don't even mind if the cat watches TV with us anymore..... (turns out, cats aren't that fun to chase, they are kind of pointy on both ends) I will steal your warm spot and your blanket if you get up. I hope I get a couch of my own and someone to share it with someday soon." If you would like to have Raider for your furever cuddle buddy.
03/03/2016 Foster Update: Raider here. Nice lady says clovers are good luck. I don't know about that, but I found a toy, so they must be! Toys are my second favorite thing in the whole world, right after loves. I like having other dogs to play with too. I didn't find a 4 leaf clover today, but maybe you can help me out by giving me a SHARE so my new family can find me.
03/23/2016 Foster update, "This St. Patrick's Day was a lucky day for me. My foster family took me to so many new places searching for a real special bone for me. I don't know why all the fuss about a pot of gold, 'cause nothing is better than a new bone to toss around the room. I love to amuse my foster family with chases around the house and yard. Those silly kids actually think they can outsmart my awesome maneuvering skills. I like to give them a chance every once in a while and let them take the bone from me. My foster mom says I'm a really good boy 'cause I drop things from my mouth when she asks me (I liked to be asked nicely). My foster mom keeps bragging to her friends that I am so well mannered. Guess it's just part of my charm. I'm a happy guy, and I like to make everyone around me happy. I love to snuggle and give kisses. I feel so relaxed with arms draped around me. Just hoping my luck continues so I can find my furrrever home. I'm eager to start making memories with whoever you are."
04/06/2016 Update: "Boy oh boy, I've been having so much fun. I love being chased all over the house and yard--I'm really fast and always win the game. I was very excited to go camping at the beach. Running super fast on the beach was the best. I also liked running from the waves with my foster sisters. I got a little scared inside the tent, so I slept with the girls in the back of the car instead. I had lots of fun helping the girls sniff out eggs on Easter. But what I really love is just being home snuggling with my girls. My foster mom says I do a great job keeping them safe and warm at night. I hope someone notices how special I am--I'm really ready to be loved by my furrrever family."

11/11/2016 Foster Update: "Hey everyone, it's me Raider! I am doing really good. My foster mamma says I am such a good boy. All I want to do is play, cuddle and play. My foster sister Porsha and I have so much fun wrestling around, but foster mom says "I get punked", whatever the heck that means. All I know is I have a BLAST! When the day winds down, I just love to curl up next to the other doggies and my foster family. I am fully house broken, crate trained and I love to play with other dogs. Go fill an adoption application and please share me on your pages, I've been living in foster care for over a year. Can't wait to meet you family!!"
