Midnight Rider’s whole world was turned upside-down when she found herself all alone in a shelter at six years old.  Luckily, with the help of caring folks along the way, this very sweet girl made her way to Safe Harbor and into a loving foster home where she could breathe a sigh of relief and rest her weary paws a while.  When Karin and Pat came to meet her and asked if she would like to join their family, Rider finally began to believe that everything was going to be okay.  She quickly wagged a hopeful “yes,” and soon was hopping into their car for the drive home to her fabulous new forever.  

Rider’s new parents tell us:  Midnight Rider has been the perfect addition to our family. Not a day passes without one of us commenting on how lucky we are to have her. We affectionately call her our “Rider Girl” and her shy, timid personality is slowly giving way to a playful and loving pup as she settles into her forever home with us. We just adore her. 

Rider loves to be outside and especially favors neighborhood walks. She is slowly getting used to the car, coming to realize that car rides mean long walks and dog park adventures. She’s settling into our home, recognizing her humans, and loves “snoozeling” in her bed. She thrives on gentle affection and play and lets us know when more petting is necessary by gently pawing or nudging with her nose. We just love her to pieces and are so grateful to have her as part of our family. 

Our rescued pup, Rider, has filled our hearts after the loss of our Golden Retriever earlier this year.  There’s nothing like the love of a dog.
