 ARPH #13735


Meet Ruger, ARPH #13735!  A wonderful mature gentleman, Ruger lost his home of over eight years through no fault of his own.  The farm was sold, and the family was moving to a small home in town.  But Ruger is learning the good things life off the farm has to offer!  He is up to date on vaccinations and on heart worm preventative.  Ruger walks very nicely on leash and loves going for walks. He knows several commands, including sit, down and shake.  He enjoys a good belly rub!  He has lived with cats and other dogs and lives with three other Aussies in his foster home. Ruger will meet and greet people very politely and seems to like each person he meets, including those at the pet supply stores on his first visit there.   Although he sleeps in a crate outside the bedroom at night, he will not stay in a crate if left alone.  Ruger suffers from some separation anxiety and doesn't like loud noises, but we will be trying some medications to help ease that.  He would do best with a person who is home most of the time, preferably with at least one other dog with a solid temperament.  This sweet boy loves his people and will be a loyal, devoted companion for the right person.  Might you be that special person who will love him and give him a wonderful home for the rest of his life?  If you are interested and APPROVED, please contact Kay
