Ryley is a 1 year old male German Shorthaired Pointer Mix. Given the size of his ears, we believe this other coloring comes from another type of hound – such as a Coonhound. That tan coloring can also come from a doberman, but he is neither large enough or has the ears or long skinny face of a dobie, so we are guessing more like hound, or tri color pointer. Of course, it is just speculation, as he didn’t come with a pedigree.
Riley is a little calmer than a GSP of one year, but has plenty of energy to burn and would need a significant amount of exercise each day as any GSP would. A great way to burn off some of that energy is by taking him for a run or run him alongside the bike for a few miles before leaving for work would be almost a necessity, and is a great way to give him the exercise he needs.
Ryley is house trained, and his previous owners left him in the yard with a dog door to the house when they were at work. Ryley would need a secure yard, as he has been known to be able to jump a 5′ fence.
He loves to play with the ball, and has been very playful with the other dogs in the field. He knows the commands, “sit”, “down” and “come”, and walks good on a leash. He is young, smart and highly trainable, and will need to go to a home that will continue with his training and give him plenty of daily exercise.
Ryley loves his people, and would do well in a home with another dog, and ideally where someone would be home most of the day.
