My name is Ruger and I am an adorable 8 year old 13 pound Chi mix looking for my happily ever after!  I spent my whole life with my momma, but she was evicted and could no longer keep me.  The nice rescue people took me in and got me vetted.  My scrotum was very large for my small size and had to be removed when I was neutered.  Thank goodness they did because there was low grade Mast Cell present, but it was all removed so I am healthy again.  I did loose quite a few teeth and now I feel like a new man.  I love all people and animals, but my I really love my foster daddy.  I do need a fenced yard as I am not used to a harness being put on but we are working on that.  I also don't like my nails trimmed so a little medicine is needed for that task.  I am a good boy and only potty outside or on pee pads, am good in a car, and crate trained.  It takes me some time to adjust and warm up to a new family, but once I do I am a happy loveable guy.  Will you be my forever home?
