Facts about Rider

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever/Blue Heeler Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Rider was supposed to be a Pit Bull puppy but now we think Heeler/Jack Russell/(Lab maybe)... as he never got big. He wants to play constantly. He jumps right in the middle of the big dogs playing and loves to snuggle and sleep with you. If you can give Rider his forever home please contact WSAL for more information!!
Rider came to us after being placed on the urgent list from FWAC. He had what they thought was ant bites on his nose. When we picked him up we noticed he had ping pong sized knots under his chin and on his back. We scheduled a follow-up apt for him with our vet and they thought he may have some infection from the ant bites and put him on antibiotics. Few days later his face started swelling and he had dramatic hair loss… back to the vet. A skin scape showed no mange and they were perplexed but called a dermatologist and it was suggested he had “puppy strangles”, juvenile cellulitis, a very rare immune system disease in pups (not reoccurring). Our vet had never seen a case in person but immediately began him on steroids in addition to extending his antibiotics. Within days he was doing better. This is not anything reoccurring and he has a clean bill of health. Now he just needs a forever home!!

About West Side Animal League

About Our Rescue Group...

West Side Animal League is a volunteer organization that rescues animals from various Fort Worth area shelters. We strive to accomplish our goal of responsible pet ownership by raising public awareness of the need to spay and neuter pets and holding adoption events, spending quality time socializing the animals and in many cases bringing them into our homes as fosters until they can find their own fur-ever home.

We provide vaccinations and medical care as funds are available. 100% of our expenses are covered by donations and adoption fees. We are only able to accomplish this through the generosity of both time and money from others who also want to make the world a better place for our furry friends. If you would like to find out about opportunities to help, call our League line at 817-565-8222 or go to our meetup site at www.meetup.com/West-Side-Pet-Adoption-Meetup-Group. Thank you for your support as we continue Working to Save Animal Lives!

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fee ($150.00 for dogs & $100 for cats) is for an already-altered pet or a voucher to get the pet altered and up to date on all shots. An adoption form will be required along with an agreement to have the pet altered within 30 days (or by 6 months of age).
