Meet Rider

Rider is a happy 4-year-old looking for his forever home! His main joys in life are adventure, squeaky toys, and having people by his side. Rider enjoys hanging out with other dogs his age too!

Before Pet Haven, Rider was bounced around between multiple homes and as a result has some mild separation anxiety. Completely understandable! With medication (cost is about $15/month), a good walk before he spends time alone, and having a general routine, he has been feeling more comfortable and thriving!

Just as his breed ancestors intended, Rider likes to sing and chat and so an apartment or townhome probably would not be a great match unless neighbors are okay listening to his songs too.

Like most pit mixes, 36-pound Rider has shown to have some food sensitivities. To be his healthiest self, he requires a prescription Hydrolyzed Protein food to decrease allergy symptoms. It’s about $150/month and his forever home would need to be comfortable providing that for him long-term.

Fun fact - Rider loves the song "Squeaky Deaky" on Spotify; Press the play button and he immediately grabs his favorite toy and wiggles his butt as if dancing! He also loves when he gets to go on walks – it’s his opportunity to say hello to all of his squirrel friends.

In addition to walks, Rider also enjoys a good rollerblade, a trail run, and chasing balls around the yard. A fenced yard would be awesome but as long as he gets opportunities for exercise each day, he is good!

Rider is an amazing companion who loves humans, has a happiness that’s contagious, and is so excited to find his forever home!

Adoption fee includes spay/neuter, heartworm/Lyme test, all age-appropriate vaccinations (distemper, rabies, & Bordetella), heartworm and flea/tick preventatives, and microchip implant including registration. Adoption fees INCLUDE a mandatory sales tax of 7.525%.

There is no guarantee of age and breed as a rescue animal's history is often unknown. All ages and breeds are best guess.

Due to post-adoption services provided, we prefer to adopt within a 90-mile radius of Minneapolis, however, we will consider up to 250 miles if the adopter is willing to drive to cities as needed.
