Ryder is a 9 year old pit-bull. He is not an aggressive dog (although he can sound like it), but is particular about protecting his space and the house. He sniffs anyone who comes in, but is looking for a pet. He is a very loving cuddle bug. He likes walks, eating, being in your lap, and sleeping. He is well trained (but can pull on the leash) and sometimes gets along with other dogs. He does well with dogs but just has to be watched as he gets to know them. He can get into it with other dogs, usually when on a leash. He is fully housebroken, but not kennel trained. He is easy to take care of, but does best with a place to watch the front door and a lap to sleep in. He is incredibly sweet, easy to train even at his age, and minds well. A home with not too much excitement that is looking for a companion dog who only really requires the basics plus attention would be ideal.
