Ruger is a friendly young 1yr old neutered Treeing Walker Coonhound.
Somebody had bought him as a hunting dog for his son, not realizing the son was really looking for a bird dog .

So, Ruger was taken to a shelter and is now in a foster home. He was neutered and has all his vaccinations including rabies shot.

He is friendly with other dogs and playful.

Ruger has the typical prey drive a dog his breed has, and he should not be walked off leash since any critter running will trigger his chase drive.

We are looking for a home familiar with his breed.

He can easily jump a 5ft fence.

If you are interested in meeting him please share a bit about yourself, do you have a fenced yard, are there other dogs or pets, small kids? Do you have experience with related breeds?

His foster home in Sparks can be reached at

An adoption contract, adoption fee and home visit will apply.
