From the Foster:

This handsome little sir is ready to leap into your life and be your #1 buddy for any adventure, large or small. Ryder has a playful enthusiasm and zest for life to be expected with any young hound dog. He’s improving with consistent expectations but needs someone who can help him redirect his energy in a positive way as he can get mouthy when he has pent-up energy and isn't sure what to do with himself.

He thrives on plenty of love and attention and opportunities to exercise his body and his brain throughout the day. Puzzle games, enrichment feeding, and training sessions are a staple of our life together. He loves bones and squeaky toys alike and will grab toys out of his basket to entertain himself. He enjoys long walks (with plenty of sniffing) and the freedom of a fenced backyard where he can play and explore. He LOVES having dog friends. Getting the excitement of running/wrestling with other dogs really helps him expend energy and makes him a much happier pup. A dog playmate in the house would be really great for him.

He does well in his crate for 5-7 hours during the day and can be trusted for 4-5 hours free roam in the house during his morning sleepy-hours without trouble.

He's a sweetie at heart and just wants to be around his person/people and keep up with the goings-on of the house. He's gentle with small children but shy with strange adults, particularly men. Once he gets a chance to warm up, he's very friendly and loves having new people friends, too.

If you're ready to keep up with him, he's smart and eager to please and would make a fun-filled family pet - he just needs a little structure in his life and plenty of loving and playtime.
