Ryder is an 8 year old senior that has lived a really rough life. He was used as a bait dog for dog fighting and escaped that and wound up at county. He has scars all over his neck and body, missing toe nails, had all of his teeth ground down and was malnourished and has a torn ear. He received medical care and had a major dental done so he is looking great and feeling better. He craves love and attention and loves toys and tennis balls. He needs a home with no other animals just because of the horrible experiences with other dogs that he endured. He also has Spondylosis so he has to be on Rimadyl the rest of his life for pain management. He is a beautiful dog with a beautiful soul that just needs patience and love.
