Ruger: Three year old neutered male shih tzu cross

We got a call from our good rescue friends at Furever Friends Rescue of WNY that they were bringing in over twenty dogs from puppy mills and could we take any?

The relationship we’ve built with this group in conjunction with the SPCA serving Erie County has lead to the rescue of many puppy mill animals and we were about to get a family.

Ruger is believed to be Delana’s oldest son. He certainly bosses everyone around like an older brother (I know. I have one).


Ruger is another handsome boy with longer legs than his brothers Fenton and Bergen. He’s shy, but often acts like a tough guy and should be placed in a home with a confident family.

Don’t get me wrong, Ruger is an awesome boy, but he’s known to be a bit of bully. If push comes to shove, he’ll back down, but won’t be happy about it. He likes the ladies more than boys and is very respectful of his mama Delana.


He pushes his little brother Fenton around a bit, so we think Ruger would do well in a home with a strong female.

We haven’t tested him with cats or kids, but young children might move too fast for Ruger.


Ruger’s hair grows and he doesn’t shed much (that we’ve noticed). He’s recently been neutered and his house training is a work in progress.
