Howdy! I'm Ralph, a playful, precious, and affectionate 13-pound Chihuahua mix fella with a snaggle-toothed grin who was born about October 2014. I love to snuggle with my foster mom and have my chin rubbed. I am very active and love to run big circles in the back yard when I get to go out. Plus I can jump really high and love to play. My foster mom brags about how smart I am because I learned the 'kennel' command in about three days. I'm crate-trained, but since I love the big dog, I'd rather be loose so I can follow him around like a groupie.
Conditions have not always been as loving and happy as in my foster home. My Schnauzer girlfriend Tanya and I were abandoned on the patio of an apartment when our owners moved away and left us behind. Can you imagine? They didn't spend much time with me, so I was very frightened when I first came to my foster home. At least Tanya came with me, but everything else was new and scary.
At first I growled at my new foster mom, but she was patient with me because she knew I was being defensive because of baggage from my prior owners' neglecting me. Once I realized she was not going to hurt me, I immediately warmed up. After three weeks, I adjusted and am now happy with the whole gang: my foster mom, her big dog, and all the foster cats. When I go to adoptions, I keep my eye on my foster mom so she doesn't wander too far from me. I like the reassurance that I won't get abandoned again.
Now I'm ready for my forever home. My foster mom testifies that I am a great dog and will be a good companion dog for someone who will give me a little time to adjust to my new surroundings. Gee, my snaggle-tooth shows up big-time when I daydream and get a big grin on my face about what my future lifetime family and home will be like. Could that be with you?

About Buster's Friends

About Our Rescue Group...

Buster’s Friends was created in memory of Jennifer Fields. Jennifer spent countless hours rescuing and fostering hundreds of Houston’s homeless animals prior to losing her battle to cancer in May 2009. As a tribute to Jennifer and her dedication, we named the group after her beloved dog Buster, who made the journey to the Rainbow Bridge in August 2008.
