My name is Raya!! My foster mom says I'm a real love bug. Sometimes she does funny stuff, like wrap me up in a blanket burrito, but I don't mind! Just great to have all these nice things in my life now. I was a street dog in Thailand, which was real scary. Then the most scary was when I was packed in a tiny cage with many other dogs and sent off for something called the meat trade. I heard they do real bad things to us and then eat us! I was so lucky to be saved from that cage by my friends at ENP. I spent about 4 years there and learned that people can be really nice to me, then I got a freedom ticket all the way to Colorado!! It's the best here! I get to have toys of my very own and even cuddle with my foster mom on the couch. She says one day I'll even have a family of my very own. That would be my biggest dream come true!
Additional notes on Raya - Raya does well with other non alpha dogs but would prefer a canine companion that will be gentle with her as she was often picked on in the dogs runs at ENP. She is such a wonderful companion! We can't wait to find her a home where she can spend her days feeling safe and loved. We are not certain of her breed mix, but Raya is a little lady at only 25 pounds.
Underdogs Rescue has partnered up with the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand to help save some of the 400+ dogs they have living on the sanctuary. While most of these dogs have come to the park following natural disasters or from situations some of us couldn't even fathom, these dogs are full of heart and ready to begin a new life in the US with a family to love them!! More information about ENP can be found on their website here: http://www.elephantnaturepark.org/ Help us help them by fostering or adopting one or more of these sweet babies looking for a new life!
