#9897 Stryker- 9/11 Memorial Dog

Small-size, Male, Adult Terrier,

Hi there! My name is Stryker. I’m a year old, 26 pound, Terrier mix (although my foster mom thinks I may have some Italian Greyhound in me with my long body and legs!). I’m a sweet, goofy boy once I come out of my shell and get to know you, but I also love to PLAY PLAY PLAY!

Here’s some more facts about me
🐾 Because of my past of not being socialized with humans, I need a patient, calm household with people that will give me time to get accustomed to them. As a result I would do best with a confident dog or dogs to show me that humans aren’t so bad. I like to mimic other dogs behaviors, so a well-behaved pup(s) would be best. I am very good at taking corrections from my foster brothers and sister and have quickly fit in with the pack. Click here to see my rescue journey.
🐾 I would do best in a home without small children, as their unpredictable nature and noisiness scare me.
🐾 I have been consistent with using the potty outside and I’m good in the crate and have been doing well crated by myself sleeping quietly overnight.
🐾 I’ve learned to love going for walks! When I first got here, I didn’t understand what a collar was and didn’t like leash pressure, but now, I enjoy going for a stroll preferably with one of my foster brothers or sister.
🐾 Playing is my favorite activity! Squeaker toys are my favorite, but I would much rather be wrestling and running around with another dog, like you can see here. I have learned to play on my own when my foster brothers and sisters are no longer interested in playing
🐾 I am very food motivated and attentive, learning to sit and do other tricks quite quickly.

Do you have a patient, calm household and extra love to give? Are you interested in experiencing how rewarding it can be to help a dog learn what it’s like to be a spoiled pet? If so, I could be the dog for you. Apply today!
