Meet Ryder! This big beautiful lab mix is 6 years old, 75 pounds and every bit of love and affection. He is super smart and loves to please. He would love a home with a fenced in yard so he can cut loose and maintain his boyish figure. He’s a lot of dog, so we wouldn’t place him in a home with pre-adolescent children for fear he’d bump them over. He loves to go for runs, loves the water and also loves to chill out in the yard or next to his people. He is house-trained and not destructive. We are requiring a home where someone is not gone all day, as he spent most of his life as an “outdoor” dog. We’re still learning about him and whether he prefers to be in a home with another dog. He IS available until we take down his post, so please if you are interested in adoption, complete our application here: https://www.maxxandme.org/adopt-app/. Adoption fee is $250, which includes all vetting (he is neutered and fully vaccinated) and microchip.
