Update from his foster parents: ----------------------------------------- Ryder is very energetic and is enjoying long walks and jogs (during the cooler parts of the day - he doesn’t love the heat we’ve been having). He is so loving and frequently comes to us looking for belly rubs. He learns new skills quickly while training indoors (like sit, down, stay, come, and shake), but is easily distracted outdoors. We are still working on leash manners as he is very interested in other animals and people, and is VERY strong. When meeting new people, he can be fearful and shy at first and prefers approaching them when he is ready. He doesn’t like being pet on the head or crowded by new people, but loves ear scratches from people he trusts. He should be in a home with children 12 and up, no cats, but would do well with another dog. He is completely housebroken and can go for long stretches before needing a potty break. He has some separation anxiety but we have been working with him on that and seen improvement. He does not have food or toy aggression.
Meet Ryder. He came to us from a local shelter as a stray and we think he has a lot of Pointer in him. Ryder is very submissive with people and great with bigger other dogs. It is obvious that he was abused since you only look at him and he will pancake on the floor.
What do we know so far: - Ryder is now house and potty trained - Ryder is crate trained but will need time to settle down - Ryder is good with bigger dogs (no toy breeds please) - No medical issues, he is on heart worm, flea and tick preventative - Ryder is working on need leash manners and basic training - No cats!
