Riptide is a small black puppy with the sweetest little eyes. His ears have gotten bigger as he has grown and now stand half-way up.
Riptide is a darling little pup who loves to play. He is always happy to chase a toy or his sister. Riptide helps his foster mom clean: he loves to explore so he sees what dust bunnies are hiding in places you don't think to look. He likes to be held and cuddled, and loves all attention he gets from people.
Riptide is doing well with potty training and is working on leash training and basic commands. He will do great in a home with a family who is excited to train a puppy.
Riptide is healthy and up-to-date on puppy shots.
Riptide came into the program with his sister, Sunshine, from a rural shelter.
