Raja is what we humbly call a "lady lover" (not like that, get your mind out of the kennel). She is a 9 year old female pit mix who was rescued at the last minute from a shelter in the Central Valley. Since then, she has been bounced from foster to foster through no fault of her own. She is now living in a kennel because no one has stepped up to take her home.
Raja loves living with a woman. Every lady she meets is smitten with her! If you are lacking a member of your girl group, Raja is the perfect match. She has a great sense of humor and likes to make you laugh with her funny eating noises and dancing around when you offer to take her on a walk, and trust me, Raja has moves. She likes to empower other women by showing them that girls can take the lead (while on walks). She's a strong woman and wants to make decisions on where to go, but can definitely respect that her fellow females might want to take a different route. She doesn't let power get to her head.
Raja will be your best gal pal but needs a careful introduction when it comes to men. Like when you introduce your best friend to your new boyfriend. She's not scared to speak up if it's not right. That doesn’t mean she won’t give him a chance to earn her trust. He will just have to go slow and earn it. We are fairly confident that Raja was done wrong by a man; real wrong. So she’s not in any hurry to give a new guy a break when it comes to trust. Then again, if you work for it, she will think about it.
We all know how it feels to have been done dirty by a dude, Raja deserves to be cut a break.
Raja is generally chill with dogs around her size. When it comes to smaller dogs, she’s cool with some, but others can irritate her. Small dogs sometimes give off a cagey vibe, kinda like a guy, some can be nice but Raja prefers to air on the side of caution. This also means she might want to warn off smaller dogs while she's walking so she needs to be reminded to chill out with a tight grip on her leash.
Raja is getting very disheartened and is losing hope that anyone will ever want her. It’s hard on a dog to live with someone and think this is your home only to be moved some place new and start all over again. After that happens several times, a dog can start to lose hope and it takes longer for them to figure out they finally belong to someone and won’t ever have to move again.
Raja needs you to hear her out and take her on in all of her glory. Show her that she is wanted, she will be loved and cherished, and that she will finally belong to someone forever. She needs you to need her. We all know how bad it feels to be all alone, unloved, and forgotten. You can do something about that for Raja. Give her a shot and meet her, and hopefully you will want to give her the home, and love, and permanence of knowing that she finally belongs to you forever. You can change her life, or you can do nothing and hope someone else steps up. That’s how she came to be living in a kennel now. The only way the world will change is if you are willing to change it.
Raja is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. Fill out an application today, and a volunteer will be in touch.
