This goof is sure to turn heads! Sweet 3 year old Stryker loves toys and playing tug of war. He is friendly, good with kids, and enjoys the company of other dogs. He is working on not pulling while on the leash, but he does well with other obedience. This boy would make a great running buddy. Wouldn't you want to open your home to this funny eared dog? Stryker has not displayed any food or toy aggression.

Stryker's story:
Stryker was found by animal control crying in an abandoned house, weeks after his owners moved out. We took him in and he waited a long time for a home. Everyone always thought he was so sweet, but moved on to the next dog. A woman adopted him and it was a perfect match, until she permanently hurt her back. Stryker had to come back to us because she couldn't give this active dog the life he needed. He is still waiting for a family to come and give him a loving home.
