Ruckus the dog needs a loving home in the Calgary area

Hi there! I’m Ruckus and I’m looking for the perfect home to call my own. I’m a high-energy boy who would benefit from an active and structured home. I’m a younger fella and I’m still learning my manners – this is something we can work on together! I’m a very smart boy, and I would love to show you all the tricks I know in exchange for treats! Small hoomans are kind of stressful for me, so I’d like to be in a calmer, adult-only home. I also think it’s fun to CHASE, so cats and small animals aren’t good company for me! I’d also prefer to be the only pup in your home – I have so much love to give all by myself! I do get along with certain other dogs who like to play the same way as I do, so I might enjoy supervised playdates outside the home. I am currently on a medication called Trazadone to manage my anxiety – this may need to be continued in the future to keep me happy and healthy. The team here at CHS recommends that my future family follows up with their regular veterinarian to discuss managing my unique needs in the long term.

A little bit about me:
– No kids
– Only dog in-home (required)
– Not for off-leash parks (required)
– No cats/small animals (required)
– Adopters must be willing to work on manners, leash skills and slow introductions to absences.
– On Trazadone for anxiety
