New to OCDRT on 5/25/2017 from a central Ohio Shelter.

Ryder is being fostered in Cleveland, Ohio.

Thank you Rachael for Ryder’s martingale collar sponsorship!
Thank you Karryn for a monthly sponsorship!
Thank you Melanie for a monthly sponsorship!

Ryder is 16.5# and around 12-14 weeks of age. He was found as a stray and taken to the local shelter. Ryder is very people friendly. He introduced well to his 5 foster siblings and wanted to play. Ryder will learn crate training, leash manners, general obedience, house training, and have all his vetting completed while under his 2 – 3 week evaluation. Ryder will require an ACD savvy home, and be ready to leave around 6/24. Please check back for updates as we get to know Ryder better.

UPDATE 6/1/2017: Ryder is showing us a very strong male side, so placement with a female dog would be best. He’s catching onto crate training, however still likes to complain about it. The resident pack is teaching him much needed social skills, as he’s true to the breed with his herding instinct. Ryder’s neuter / rabies vaccine / micro-chip implant is set for 6/19. Prior experience raising an ACD will be required for his adoption.

UPDATE 6/2/2017: Ryder has a deposit from an approved applicant to hold him for a meeting on 7/1. We will update after his meeting.

UPDATE 7/1/2017: Ryder has left for his forever home! We will update as he settles in.

UPDATE 7/15/2017: Ryder is Officially Adopted!
