Ryder is not for the faint of heart. This big boy LOVES to run and be active, so if you life an active lifestyle and are looking for an addition to your family, Ryder is the perfect fit!

Ryder is a neutered 18-month-old 62lb mixed breed who is timid at first, but will warm up if approached properly. He still wants to be a lap dog and loves to snuggle. Ryder is a well-rounded social butterfly who knows some basic commands, but will absolutely benefit from additional obedience training. He came to Tri-County Humane Society as a stray, so it's not known how he'll react to children or cats. Per usual guidelines for a new pet, it's best to introduce new pets in a slow, proper way.

Book Buddies Reading Program

Pets love to be read to. If you have a kiddo (age 5-15 years preferred) in your household who would LOVE to read to a shelter resident, then the Book Buddies program is for you (them)! Pets don't care about mispronounced words, and it's beneficial for both the kiddo (who gets practice reading aloud) and the resident, as shelter life can be stressful.
