Ruger is a sweet and affectionate dog who will quickly become your loyal companion. He takes treats gently and is very food-motivated. He loves to lean on you for affection, bonds quickly, and eagerly awaits your return.

Ruger is housetrained and crate-trained. He’s learning cues like Sit, Heel, Down, Stay, Wait, Off, Leave it, Drop it,  Touch, and not jumping up. He’s a smart pup who responds well to training with treats and positive reinforcement. Ruger is an active dog who loves to hunt lizards, chase squirrels, and chew on his toys, especially his favorite stuffed squeaky squirrel. He enjoys walks and generally has good leash manners, although he can be a bit excitable if he spots a deer or cat. He’s learning not to jump up on people in enthusiastic greetings!

He is nearly done with his veterinary care – he has recovered from kennel cough, his coat is looking good, his skin is improving after flea bites and will be checked at his next vet visit, he still has a bit of sensitivity in one ear that is being evaluated.

Ruger is a confident and curious dog who likes to check out everything in his environment. He might have been an outside dog previously, as he enjoys spending time outdoors, lying in the shade, and exploring the yard. Ruger loves car rides and will happily join you for any adventure. He’ll thrive in an active home with someone who enjoys engaging with their dog – a family that can provide plenty of exercise and mental stimulation. If you’re looking for a loyal, active, and loving buddy, Ruger could be the perfect addition to your home!
