Reston, VA

Meet Ryder, a male Retriever & Dalmatian mix available for adoption locally.

Here is what his friends at Safe Haven Puppy Rescue have to say about him:

Ryder is an adorable little guy who is about 10 weeks old and weighs in at a bit under 8 pounds — we don’t think he’ll be too big when grown, maybe in the area of 40 to 45 pounds give or take. The people who brought him in said retriever and dalmatian but all we know is that he’s a mix and 100% adorable.

This great little fella is a nice blend of friendly affection and normal puppy playfulness and will be great company. He’s doing great in his foster home where his mom says “Ryder has so much expression in that little face of his. He picks up on all the sounds heard in the neighborhood, and gets so excited to meet people.”
