Update 10/7/2021: Ryder is heartworm negative and a faint positive for ehrlichia, but is not showing any symptoms of active infection and so being monitored only.
Ryder is super friendly! He loves attention, but doesn’t know boundaries as well as he should. He is very intense with playing and receiving attention. Sometimes he can be too intense with playing, and doesn’t understand the cues from other dogs. He is very submissive when challenged. He is not a bad dog and does not have ill intent with anyone.
He does need major training with leash walking. I currently have to use a prong collar to walk him and at times that can be difficult. He has improved but still has a long way to go. He loves being outside and smelling everything. He listens pretty well and is a happy dog.
He loves being with someone and will howl if left alone. He would do well with someone who is home a lot and can work with him on his leash walking.
Ryder will be neutered prior to adoption.
