Ryder is a 3 year old brindle Dane, neutered, heart worm negative and current on vaccines. He is on the thin side and we are putting some weight on him. Ryder is a bit shy and nervous at first. It takes him a little bit of time before he feels comfortable in a new home but he is a very sweet boy. He is starting to play with toys and loves to play with the foster family 2 year old female Mastiff. Ryder looks, and runs, like an adorable baby deer with his long, gangly legs. He walks well on leash after being excited at the prospect of going on the walk and travels well in the car. Ryder likes to have plenty dog beds to sprawl on and a special space where he can go lay down when he wants some quiet time.
Ryder is looking for a caring and compassionate home that will help continue to build his confidence and understand he is most comfortable in his familiar environment.
