Pet of the week/Ryder

Published 8:28pm Thursday, July 12, 2012

Looking for a perfect dog? Seven-year-old Ryder is the one for you. He is as close to a perfect dog as you can get! Ryder is friendly, loving, playful, obedient and just plain a fantastic dog!  He will sit, lay down, come and anything else you might try! Most of all, he loves to ride shotgun! Ryder has had a bit of upheaval in his forever-home life. Not so forever, just the last year or so. However, Ryder is ready to grace a new home with enjoyment to all. Ryder is already neutered, but will need updating on shots. Ryder’s $30 adoption fee is almost perfect, too.


Last week’s dog adoptions include Chloe and Gus, Chihuahuas; Pumpkin, rat terrier; Cee Cee, dachshund; and puppies, Bam Bam and Bridgett. Cat adoptions include Kitty, Labamba and a kitten, Paws. The shelter has a variety of dogs and cats available for adoption. Come, meet, adopt!
