Which is why the article is 'dem'. Do masculine nouns always end with 'n' in the dative case?
No, there are three declension types in German: weak, strong and mixed. Some nouns (for example: der Junge, der Affe) declines with "weak" pattern: Singular N. der Junge A. den Jungen D. dem Jungen G. des Jungen
