Ryker was excited to make it home just in time to usher in the new year with his new parents, Cathy and Robert. Now that spring has sprung, he is ready to put away his snow boots and pull out his swimsuit so he’s prepared for all the warm weather fun. At about 2.5-years-old, young Ryker has a lifetime of love to give and memories to make, and he has found the perfect family to share it all with.

Cathy and Robert sent us an update on their boy:

Ryker (Fire) has been a part of our family since December. He is a well-trained, gentle boy with a calm, happy personality who enjoys good belly rubs and cuddles. He enjoys daily walks, dog park visits and weekend adventures hiking on our many nearby trails. He especially likes looking for the bunny he happened upon in our back yard…can’t seem to catch him. He is quite fond of UGG slippers as well. He is loved and makes us smile every day.
