Facts about Ruckus

  • Size: X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 5720
Ruckus #5720, known affectionately as Ruck, is a 3-year-old male, Great Dane mix. This handsome and lovable boy at some point had one eye removed but gets along just fine without it. He loves hanging with his humans and tries to stay close in typical Velcro-Dane fashion. He is wonderful with children of all ages, and even enjoys having his foster family's 2-year-old climbing all over him. He is a big boy, weighing in at 150 pounds, and can be a bit of a goof, so if you get him too riled up he can be a handful even for an adult. He loves playing with other dogs, but doesn't like it when they play too rough (his foster sibling sometimes nips at his legs until he runs away).

Ruckus loves to be with his people and follows them all over the house. Ruckus is house-broken and works hard to let you know when it’s time to go out. He has proven to be eager to please and very trainable though he doesn't always understand what you want. While Ruckus hasn't displayed any destructive tendencies and stays on his bed throughout the night his foster family does keep him confined when he is home alone.

Ruckus would do best in a home with a big fenced in yard and a playmate to help keep him company.
This pup is microchipped. We believe you can always teach an ‘old’ dog new tricks so we highly recommend continued obedience training for this smart pup; it stimulates the dog's mind and establishes a good dog/adopter relationship. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption form, downloadable from our website: http://www.lastchanceanimalrescue.org/adoptus.html and return it per instructions. Email dogs@lastchanceanimalrescue.org with questions. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for adoption event locations and updates: www.facebook.com/lcarmd.
