Ruger is a seven year old Welsh Springer Spaniel male who has just come in to WSSCA foster care in Colorado. He was relinquished by his owner because they no longer had time to spend with him.
In foster care, Ruger is learning new things. He never lived inside his previous owners’ home, living outside and sleeping in a shed at night. In foster care, he now lives inside and is learning about all of the new things that go along with living indoors. He lived with other dogs in his previous home and is also living with other dogs in his foster home as well. His foster mom and dad are being very patient with him as he settles in and adapts to all of the changes.
Ruger is quite healthy for a seven year old dog. He will be neutered and will have his teeth cleaned after he has settled in to foster care for a short time. His foster mom thought it best to wait until he had settled in before getting these two things done. He is up to date on vaccinations and is also being trained to abide by an underground electric fence set-up.
