Meet Ryder! (Tampa, FL)

Updated: May 13

Age: 18 months old

Breed: Australian Shepherd mix


Gets along with: people, dogs

Location: Tampa, Fl

Ryder is a very happy, young Australian Shepherd mix who is available for adoption.  He is just 18 months old, he weighs 54 pounds, and he has a fluffy black and white coat with cute little white toes and a full tail.  Ryder is housebroken, crate-trained (but he is not a crate “super fan”), and he has learned a few obedience commands.  He walks fairly well on leash, with some pulling when he sees another dog he wants to meet – he is such a social butterfly!  He is a great passenger in the car.

Ryder loves people!  He is shy and stands back a bit when he meets someone new, but he warms up very quickly and is soon asking for as many pets as you can give.  Ryder is a medium-to-high Velcro boy who wants to be in the same room as his foster family but he does not get underfoot.  Ryder also loves other dogs.  This medium energy boy loves to wrestle and romp with his foster dog pal, go for long walks with his foster family, and when the active play is done you will find him happily chewing on his toys and relaxing with his family.  Ryder does chase cats.

The ideal family for Ryder is active, happy and friendly, just like him!  Ryder still has some puppy in him, so his new family also needs to be committed to continuing his obedience training – he is a smart, food-motivated, very trainable young guy.  A fenced yard and a playful young dog pal are required, and because he still jumps a bit any children in the home should be at least 12 years old.  Ryder is such a great guy, and he is so ready to share lots of doggie love and kisses with his new family.  If you would like to learn more about our adoption process and complete an application please visit our website,  Ryder is fostered in Tampa, Fl.        

Ryder's adoption donation is $300.
