RYDER ~2-3 years old.  Good with dogs.  Good with Kids, Cats TBD. Needs a companion. 

GSRA adopts to residents of VA, NC, and SC only

Did you say you were looking for an adorable fun-loving goofy pup? Well let me introduce you to Ryder. He is as handsome as he is  fun-loving . He loves people and being with them. And there is nothing like a little snuggle time or belly rub. :~) He enjoys a good game of fetch but you might need two toys at times to entice him to bring it back. lol Ryder is a typical young dog; fun, playful and full of life. He loves going for walks, hikes, and is always ready for a car ride.

Ryder loves playing with other dogs and has done well with both male & female. He also has free roam 24/7 with the other pups and has done very well.

Ryder walks okay on a leash and is learning some basic commands. He is a wonderful boy but will need someone who is willing to continue working with him. He is very food motivated so that helps with training.

Ryder would love a family who had a pup for him to play with. He will also require a 6’ fence b/c he has been known to escape from a shorter one.  He done well with the kids that were at the event but I personally do not have kids for him to be around. Ryder does have a mild case of hip dysplasia but you would never know it to see him run, jump and play. lol  

Do do you think this big boy might be the one for you?
