From Ryder's foster mom...

Ryder is a cute little guy who has had a rough past couple of years.  With a few weeks of love and attention, he is quickly getting healthy - he is sprouting hair where he was previously balk, he is eating well and filling out (less bony), and he is growing to love being outside and going for walks though he isn't a fan of wet grass (he was previously unfamiliar with both the leash and the great outdoors).  He loves to be held and cuddled, rides comfortable in the car and has even been on a boat ride with no anxiety.  Ryder has a fairly predictable potty routine.  Except for a few mistakes early on (when I was not being as attentive as I should have) he has pottied exclusively outside.  He doesn't say much but does his best to let me know when he's "gotta go".  Ryder is timid around strangers but was especially comfortable when visiting my senior parents (calm environment and softer voices).

Ryder is looking for a special someone who will be patient with his tentative nature and give him the warmth and attention that he craves.  He is just beginning to blossom and with the right care will be a loyal and loving companion.
