Ru is an approximately 55lb staffie mix, we think around 4 years old. He was found wandering the streets of Houston and ended up at BARC where he was on the euthanasia list. 

His notes originally stated that he is sweet and affectionate and does still show some puppy like behaviors. 

Ru has been in foster care for months now and is really learning how to be the best boy. He learned some commands like “sit” and “kennel up.” He does well in a crate and even likes it covered for his own little sanctuary. He LOVES to go on walks and is working hard on not pulling, but still needs someone to work with him on that. 

Ru successfully lives in a home with three other large dogs. He’s become part of the pack! However, we do always suggest slower intros since he’s a bigger guy and as mentioned can still act like a puppy. He likes to play and would do best with a dog that doesn’t have that alpha energy.

Ru also lives with cats! Although you won’t find him snuggled up with them, he has learned to respect their space. Again, slower intros are best.
