Ruger is looking for a new home through no fault of his own. He is as smart as he is good-looking. Ruger has been professionally trained by Fly Creek Kennels and he still has some unused training time that can be utilized to understand how best to work with him and speak his language. His Mom is a Siberian Husky and Alaskan Malamute mix, while his Dad is the German Shepherd, where he gets his shepherd-like personality. Ruger is very affectionate and reasonably quiet, unless he is playing or protecting his family. He is a pretty mild-mannered and easy-going guy. Ruger has not had a lot of interaction with other dogs, but should do well if properly introduced. He is not bothered by the neighbor dogs when they bark. Ruger lives with cats, enjoys tormenting them, and should do fine with a dog-savvy cat. Ruger also lives with two teenagers and does well with the pre-teen neighbor kids. He has had no exposure to toddlers though. He does need to be reminded of his manners at feeding time by having him sit and stay before he gets his food, otherwise, he tends to get food-possessive. He is also both crate-trained and potty-trained. Ruger is very intelligent and a quick learner. He likes guidance and structure. Ruger needs consistency and boundaries from a loving but firm owner. We would also love to see him in an active home where he is well-loved. Ruger is neutered and will be up to date on vaccinations.
