Ruger's Story...
This big red bundle is Ruger, who is an owner surrender. He is 2 years old and weighs about 85 pounds. A nice older couple had him since a pup and he was a loved member of the family. When their grandchildren moved into town, they worried about him around them. Being big and bouncy and not used to very young, squealing and running kids they thought it best to make sure Ruger could have a home where he would thrive. We therefore will place him in a home with children who are at least 10 years old. Ruger lived with two other dogs, smaller than him but not tiny. He also lived with foxes, chickens and ducks. Has not lived around cats. He loves to play with balls and laser lights; just loves the dancing light of a laser, could chase that all day. We are not supposed to tell you, because he is on a diet, but he also likes popcorn and angel-food cake. He has the expected Doberman trait of wanting to follow you everywhere and know what you are up to. His dog mommy was not very maternal and quit feeding her pups early on, so he was bottle fed by humans. This perhaps explains why our boy is a bit more needy than usual. He would be happiest in a home with someone who is around a lot, maybe works from home or has an adult member of the house who is around. Obedience training with his new parent(s) would be an excellent idea to give him the confidence a boy like him needs. The former owners did crate him when the grandchildren came over, and he did not like it but did comply. A moderate sized fenced yard and maybe some nice walks (he used to love leash walks in the woods near his home) and he would be a happy boy.
