Raiden - in Maine!
Newest update: January 2016
Raiden is a beautiful one year old Hound mix. He was found abandoned with an embedded collar in his neck and has recovered beautifully in the care of our southern partner shelter. The pain must have been unbearable, yet he still trusts people and is the sweetest boy.
Despite what he has endured, Raiden is such a sweet, happy-go-lucky dog! He is a well-mannered companion who is always ready to be close by your side on daily walks. He is an affectionate dog who enjoys being petted and is always ready for quality cuddle time. Raiden wants to learn and to please his people. He enjoys playtime with other dogs. He is a petite guy, around 35 lbs - what a great medium size! He will be such a wonderful part of the family lucky enough to take him home! Raiden has so much love to give!
During his SAFER test Raiden did beautifully except was a bit protective over food so we'd recommend feeding him separately and that older children would be best for him in a potential new home.
Raiden has settled into his Maine foster home, and we are finding that he is doing wonderfully with their two dogs and a cat. He’s housebroken and crate trained but he also likes to snuggle in bed. He gets along with his furry foster siblings and their neighbor’s dog. He’s fine with the cat, and likes to go for walks and rides in the car He LOVES to run in the fenced back yard. At first he was protective over his food but this has calmed down as he’s gotten used to consistent meals and good leadership. He can be vocal and persistent- mainly when he’s trying to get one of the dogs to play with him. It takes him a little while to warm up to someone new, but treats are the magical cure ; 0 )
Raiden would be fine as an only dog or having furry siblings. He likes chasing balls but is not the best at giving them back. He is a perfect medium size.
Please note: we do not have a physical facility where the dogs are housed - they are cared for in our wonderful network of foster homes throughout New England. Our expectation is that, once approved through the rescue, potential adopters will meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved. If interested, please fill out the adoption application. Thank you for considering rescue!
