Pending Adoption: Ruger, a 9 month old Male Yellow Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: Ruger came to LVLR with a broken right elbow, a olecranon fracture, and had orthopedic surgery in March. He still has 2 pins in where the break occurred, that will be left there permanently. This does not affect his prognosis, he should go on to have a happy, healthy life. Families interested in Ruger should ask any medical questions of concern via email (email@example.com) before requesting to meet him.
Here is a Bio from his foster family……..
"Ruger has gone through a lot in short life, but after almost 3 months with LVLR in foster care, he's finally becoming his normal self. He's very funny, sweet and weirdly bendy, we call him Noodle! Like all puppies, Ruger is energetic, enthusiastic and happy. He's a voracious eater, and definitely needs to improve his table manners. He's typical puppy mouthy, and shows a lot of prey drive. He's caught a lizard and bird for us, and loves to go stalking our backyard. He's still chewing on things he isn't supposed, but is very smart and learns quickly. Given his injury and recovery, he hasn't been walked on leash much, but he now loves to ride in the car. He does very well with our dogs, making them play with him whether they want to or not. Ruger is house trained, does OK in the crate, and sleeps through the night. He's a very snuggly, loving boy as well, preferring to sleep touching you. Families with smaller children should be cautious in requesting to meet Ruger, as he needs more training to redirect his mouthiness and jumping up. With time, commitment and training, Ruger will make an incredible companion for an active home.
Ruger currently has the maximum allowed meet requests, please watch for updates.
