Hi there! I’m Stryker and I’m part of the 9/11 Memorial Dog themed transport that came to OPH on 9/11/2020. I am named and honored after Stryker who originated from MD-National Capital Park Police and served as a Search and Rescue dog at the Pentagon during the 9/11 Tragedy.
I’m guessed to be a Terrier mix that is about a year old and weighs 21lbs. My foster mama says that I’m a sweet boy, but am VERY nervous about humans. Because of this, I would probably do best in a patient home without young kids and with another dog to show me the ropes, as well as someone with a fenced-in yard due to my nervousness on leash. I LOVE other dogs and just want to run and play with them! They bring out my goofy, playful side. We are taking things slow when it comes to getting used to being touched by humans, but I love treats and will gladly take them out of your hand. My foster mom is still getting to know me, so check back in to see what else they’ve learned!

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
