Meet Ruger
This handsome young dog, named Ruger, is amazing. He was on the kill list at a partner animal control due to space when we rescued him. Ruger is a happy dog knowing he's safe now.
Ruger is thought to be an Ibizan hound mix. He is about eight months old and of medium size at 40 lbs. He has been a joy since arriving. He is a playful and fun-loving pup. He loves being with people. He likes other dogs, too. Ruger is an active boy. He will do best with an active family. He would also do well with another dog in the family to run and play with. A containment fence is a must for Ruger so he can run freely and safely. He is not one to be left outside, given his lean build. Ruger is friendly and hopes his family will come for him soon.
We love Ruger already and know his future family will fall in love with as well. He's a keeper.
