German Shepherd Dog
Coat length:
Hi there! I go by Ryder, but some also call me King Tut. Im a spirited and lively pup who embraces life with enthusiasm. Despite a challenging start, Ive maintained a positive outlook and now revel in every moment. Im a total attention-lover, and Im currently refining my house manners with the help of my patient foster mom.

Intelligent and responsive, Ive already mastered the art of sitting and enjoy a good game of fetch. Leash walks are becoming second nature to me, and Ive got the hang of being housebroken. Living with a doggie door is a blast—I dash in and out, relishing the freedom that comes with leaving the shelter behind.

While I can handle up to 6 hours in my crate, Id much prefer to be by your side. I get along swimmingly with other dogs, especially my foster brother, whos become my best pal. However, Im not a fan of feline friends, so a cat-free home would be ideal.

For an active family with older kids, Id be a fantastic fit. I love roughhousing and playing, though I might need a gentle reminder of my size and strength when excitement takes over. My tail is practically an airplane propeller! I adore nylon stick BarkBones and a KONG filled with peanut butter as treats.

Im on the lookout for a dynamic family that can keep up with my energy. An active lifestyle suits me perfectly, and Id love a yard to call my own. Ready for adventures and eager to explore the world together, I cant wait to meet my new family. If you have a yard where we can play, lets embark on this exciting journey and make lasting memories!
