Ryder is a gorgeous ten month old dog, maybe a shepherd mixture, 40 lbs. He is friendly with strangers, and loves other dogs! NOT cat friendly! He is crate trained, good on leash, and loves learning new things. He will benefit from further training, as he thrives in a learning environment. He gains much security from another dog, and will be a good companion/best friend for another dog. He is active and enjoys play. Nice hiking/jogging partner! Ask me for his video! Nice family doggie!
