part of a large puppy mill bust made February 22, 2005. To read about it visit
He was named Raider by the Houston Humane Society after their R.A.I.D.E.R. Program
(Rescuing Animals In Danger and Education Resources).
He just came into our program. Raider is up to date on shots, is HW negative, neutered and has had his teeth cleaned. He weighs a little over 8 pounds and has a very hardy appetite. We think he is about 2 years old or younger but that is a guess because he acts like a puppy. He has never been on a leash and freaked out when we tried so we are going very slowly.
Raider is in the process of being house trained and he is basically a clean dog. Just has had no idea about living in a house although he is learning fast. He is into everything and loves the toy basket. He has quickly bonded to his foster mom and is acting just like a spoiled boy already - very demanding and never lets her out of his sight.
Raider is in Houston, Texas.
If you would like more information,
contact Margie Simon, 713-783-8887. If you are interested
in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application.
Keep in mind that we prefer
to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone
from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to
fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to
travel in the cabin with the passenger.

Raider has been Adopted!
July 23 - From Raider's
I just wanted to give you an update on Raider. He is doing great! He is becoming
more comfortable with us every day. Griffyn and Dylan both love him to death and
he is now just part of the family. I took these pictures after their bath. It
was hard to take them because they were so excited after getting bathed. Please
excuse the haircuts.. They are horrible!!! I hope you enjoy them!
for more rescue stories!
