This fabulous 10-11 month-old Anatolian Shepherd mix has it all—great looks and an incredibly sweet disposition! Ruckus found himself homeless at an overcrowded rural county dog shelter and made the trip to Canine Lifeline so he would be able to enjoy life in a foster home while searching for a permanent new home. With a name like Ruckus (he came with that name from the shelter), you might expect him to be a rough and rowdy young dog but nothing could be further from the truth. Ruckus is about as chill, mellow, and sweet as you’re likely to find in a young dog. He gets along great with other dogs but isn’t overly rowdy. He plays nicely and seems to fit his style of play to the particular canine buddy he’s with. Ruckus likes people too and does jump up for attention but is learning that all good things come to pups who keep four paws on the floor. He has been working on crate-training and housetraining in his foster home and done well with both. With some direction on the part of his new family, he should be able to pick up the routine in his new home without too much difficulty. Ruckus would love to enroll in an obedience class with his new family to be the very best dog he can be. Ruckus weighs about 55 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
