Ryker is my AKC Miniature American Shepherd (MAS) blue merle boy who is a beloved and neutered family pet. Although he is registered as a mini...he is actually a "MAXI"! He is a larger MAS. He is a clown who likes to sleep in the house and run and play outside. He likes to chase and be chased by the other dogs! A truly fun loving dog that also will cuddle on the couch anytime. I got Ryker from Chandrea Kennels up in Oregon. He aced his obedience class and is currently in Rally class and doing great! Love this sweet, playful, energetic boy! Ryker was born on January 15, 2014. He is an excellent "uncle" to the puppies when we have a litter. Grumbles but lets them climb all over him.
