Hi! I'm RUGER!

Hi! I’m RUGER!

Meet Ruger! This striking fellow is looking for a new home through no fault of his own. Ruger is as smart as he is good looking. He has had some professional training through Fly Creek Kennels and his current owner still has some unused training time that Ruger’s new person could utilize to understand how best to work with him and speak Ruger’s language. Ruger’s dad was the German Shepherd and he takes on his dad’s “Shepherdy” personality.

Ruger is very affectionate and reasonably quiet unless he is playing or protecting his family. He’s a pretty mild-mannered, easy going guy.

When we met him, he was super chill and lovey with no hesitation to meet us and accept butt scritchies.

Ruger hasn’t had a lot of interaction with other dogs, but should do well if introductions are done properly. He’s not bothered by the neighbor dogs when they bark. He does live with two cats but does enjoy tormenting them. Ruger should do fine with a dog-savvy cat that put out the right vibes. Again, this would be with proper introductions.

In his current home he has two teen human siblings and also does well with the pre-teen neighbor kids. He has had no exposure to toddlers though, and with any dog, we never advise leaving small children and dogs alone without supervision.

Ruger does need to be reminded of his manners at feeding time to sit and stay before he gets his food, otherwise he tends to get food-possessive.

This goodest boy is crate-trained and potty-trained.

He is a quick learner- very intelligent and likes guidance and structure. Ruger needs consistency and boundaries from a loving but firm owner. We would also love to see him in an active home where he can burn off a little of his extra “fluff”.

Ruger is neutered and will be up to date on vaccinations and microchipped prior to adoption.
