Are you looking for a fun and active friend to join you on all of life's adventures? Meet Ryder, a handsome shepherd mix who came to TRD from Louisiana after Hurricane Harvey. Ryder is ready for any outing you have in mind. Whether you enjoy walks, runs, hikes, or trips to the beach, this guy is ready to go! Ryder loves running and playing at the dog park and enjoys greeting all the humans there too. People frequently comment how happy he is. Ryder has a lot of energy, but he is a sweet and impressionable guy who is primed and ready for training. He has responded very well so far to the patient instruction he has received in his foster home, and would love to learn more. Ryder has learned sit, stay, down, and place recently. He is a very smart dog and learns very quickly. Ryder has mastered his house training and is working on his crate training. Ryder is 1 year old as of October 2017, and weighs in at around 30 pounds. He is a handsome, slender, and sporty dude looking for someone who will enjoy some activity, and plenty of snuggle time when the action is done! This sweet guy is definitely a diamond in the "ruff" and has tons of potential to be a great companion. Ryder enjoys the company of other dogs, and will be fine with another dog in his new home as long as proper introductions are made. Because of his exuberance, Ryder would be best in a home with older children or adults only. Ryder is not cat friendly. If you would like to meet Ryder, please fill out an adoption application on the TRD website and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet.
