Stray Pit Bull Who Jumped on School Bus and Then Disappeared is Rescued

A friendly stray Pit Bull who jumped on a school bus for a ride has been rescued off the streets.

It was Monday when the white and tan dog followed some high school kids to a bus stop and then followed them on board. Kids on the bus said he acted like one of them and ran in to grab a seat. He then sat in the seat and wouldn’t leave.

The bus driver got the students to leave the bus and tried to get the friendly dog to leave the bus, but he wouldn’t budge. Neighbors and parents joined in trying to give him graham crackers. He was eventually coaxed off with a meal by some neighbors. But no one came to pick up the dog or wait with him and he wandered off.

Upset at the thought that such a friendly dog was left to fend for himself, animal lovers in Dekalb County, Georgia, began to search for the “school bus dog.”

At the time of the dog’s bus ride, many locals told My Fox Atlanta that they had never seen the dog before, while a few mentioned that the stray had been seen around the playground and a pond for a few days.

Delkalb Animal Services picked the dog up a day later after he had wandered into someone’s backyard and called animal control. The Pit Bull continued to be a happy-go-lucky fellow and was more than happy to go with animal control. Diva’s Pit Bull Rescue soon arranged to pick up the friendly stray and he has been named Ryder.

Ryder was assessed by the rescue group and within days he had a long list of potential adopters wanting to give him a home. Ryder now happily has a family!
