“Small but mighty” is Ryder’s motto!  He is a busy little guy that loves to explore and get into things; therefore, he will need an active family to keep him busy and out of trouble.  His favorite thing to do is playing with his foster siblings and will need another playful dog to help burn his energy.  He also loves to play with the cat in the home. Only a very dog savvy cat will tolerate his playfulness! He loves going on walks and exploring new trails!

While Ryder loves his doggy friends, he does not like to share high valued items, like bones or his favourite toy with other dogs.  We can easily trade anything for a treat and with high valued bones, we can put him in his crate for a good chew.  Preference will be given to applicants that will attend positive reinforcement classes.  On down time, Ryder seems to always squeeze himself right next to his person to cuddle or with his foster siblings.
His house training is coming along nicely and will need to continue in his new home as accidents still happen occasionally. Ryder is crate trained but will fuss when he can hear his human in the home.  He does sleep through the night without issues and welcomes you with such love in the morning!
