Meet Mr. Stryker
Hello Puppies! Boy, do I have some exciting news for you: Stryker is the newest member of the Mapaw Family! He came home (to Mark's) yesterday and is settling in pretty well. He was found as a stray and was at the SPCA in Conshohocken. Mapaw was called in and he passed evaluation with flying colors. He was a little shy with the bi-peds but plays with us pups quite well! (In fact, I think he likes us better.) I even got to boss him around a little (hehehe). He has taking a shining to Shadow...he thinks she's his girlfriend. Ewww.
Stryker is starting to find his bark. He sounded a little hoarse at first: we asked him if he wanted a cough drop. He didn't.
He still needs to learn some manners but responds well to correction. We were surprised to see he even knew a few commands: sit, down & paw! We don't have much (any!) background on the guy but he must have been somebody's pup at one point. We think he's a year to year & a half old. Lots of puppy energy!
Here are some more pics of the new guy:
We'll have more info to share as Stryker settles in and becomes more comfortable with everyone.Last pic:
Happy Saturday, Pups!
