Hi! I am Ryder and I am really excited to tell you all about me because I want to find my special forever family! I really REALLY like people! I like to give hugs and kisses and I love to learn new things. I already learned to sit, and I come when you call me. I like to be close to you when I feel insecure. I am a little bit shy. You might actually trip over me... and I really don’t like to be left alone. But if you put my crate in your room where I can see you I am a happy boy. I sleep really good in my crate and wake up at six every morning and go potty right away when you take me outside. I am a good boy! (Foster Mama tells me so all the time!) I am ALMOST potty trained, but I haven’t really learned to actually tell you I need to go outside so you need to ask me every couple of hours (sooner if I am playing hard). I am scared of bigger dogs, but if you help me get to know them and they don’t play too rough (at first) we can be good friends and playmates. I don‘t know about cats because Foster Mama doesn’t have one for me to meet. I really REALLY like to PLAY, and I like treats. Foster Mama hasn’t taught me to walk on a leash yet, but she says she is going to teach me to be a polite walker. Foster Mama says to tell you I am neutered and have my first puppy shots and a microchip. I had some really nasty parasites but now I don’t have them anymore and I can start gaining some weight. Right now I am about thirteen pounds but Foster Mama says I might get to be about sixty pounds! I can’t wait! If you want to meet me please put in an application at pittfriends.com and Foster Mama will call you. I can’t wait to meet you!
