Ryder found himself in a shelter in North Carolina and was running out of rescue options. As luck would have it there happened to be two MAGSR volunteers in that very same shelter picking up four sweet puppies to bring into the MAGSR family. They had an opportunity to meet this regal boy and knew they wanted to save him. Emails were sent and arrangements were made and a week later this gentle giant made his way to Maryland.

Unfortunately, this sweet boy lived a life of neglect as he came in matted and with sores on his ears. MAGSR had him vetted as soon as we were able to and after completion of blood work we received the bad news that he was suffering from Heartworm disease, Ehrlichia, and Lymes. Ryder was started on medications and a Heartworm protocol that will get him healthy and feeling good again. With all that said, even though this poor boy felt miserable he is nothing but sweet Southern charm. In fact, he was so full of charm within minutes he won over the hearts of those volunteers that drove eight hours roundtrip to pick up this sweet boy and transport him to MAGSR. If this gentle giant sounds like he may fit your family please fill out an application now!
