Ryder is a beautiful young male GSD with a long coat. We have been learning more about him while he is spending time in a foster home. In this home, he is good friends with the resident female GSD. His family reports he is affectionate, housebroken and has good house manners. He knows basics like sit, lay down and walking on leash. He is an excellent watchdog, but doesn’t mind when houseguests come over.
While Ryder gets along with dogs he knows, he can become overly stimulated when he sees new dogs. He has been working to overcome his excitability, and would do best in an GSD-savvy home that understands the importance of leadership, exercise, routine and continued training. He is not recommended for small children. Due to his very high prey drive, no cats please.

The minimum adoption donation ranges from $300 to $400. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. Prior to placement, all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are usually microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis. Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
