Meet Ryder

Meet Ryder, a vibrant 2-year-old mixed breed dog weighing 51 pounds, ready to bring boundless joy and energy into your home! We are guessing he is a mix of hound and Rhodesian Ridgeback but aren't sure.

Eager to embrace every moment, I'm a spirited pup who finds delight in the simple pleasures of life. Quick-witted and responsive, I've already mastered sitting and revel in a good game of fetch. Leash walks are second nature to me, and I've aced the art of being housebroken. The convenience of a doggie door has added a new level of fun to my daily routine—I dash in and out, relishing the freedom of leaving my shelter days behind.

While I can spend up to 6 hours in my crate, my heart yearns to be by your side, sharing love and companionship. I'm a social butterfly and get along famously with other dogs, especially my foster brother, who has become my cherished best pal. However, I must confess that feline friends are not my cup of tea, so a cat-free home would be my ideal haven.

For an active family with older kids, I would be the perfect addition. I thrive on playtime and roughhousing, though a gentle reminder about my size and strength during moments of excitement would be appreciated. My tail? Well, it's practically an airplane propeller! Treat-wise, I have a soft spot for nylon stick BarkBones and a KONG filled with peanut butter.

Ready to embark on a journey of love, laughter, and endless adventures? I'm Ryder, and I can't wait to bring my zest for life into your home!
