Ruvo is the perfect flexible canine partner that will be a great match for someone who is up for a new adventure each day! Whether you want a lazy day around the house or an action-filled excursion, Ruvo won’t be far from your side.
Ruvo is extremely sweet and affectionate. When in the home, he loves to cuddle but once it’s time to play he is full of energy! He has instantly loved every person he’s met and has been good with children if they respect his space. Ruvo has been good with other dogs with slow, proper introduction. He can be pushy with other dogs but takes corrections well. Due to his high prey drive, Ruvo will need a home without very young children, cats, or small pets. He rides well in the car, is neutral around loud noises, and is fully crate trained. Ruvo is very sensitive to correction and a verbal correction is usually all that is necessary. He has mostly mastered basic obedience and is working on more advanced commands and reducing pulling when on leash.
Ruvo would do well in either a busy or calm home. However, he does enjoy being active so would do best with someone willing to ensure he gets plenty of exercise each day. He’s always up for playing ball, frisbee, or going out for walks or hikes. Ruvo is relatively easy going but will need a somewhat experienced handler to help him through some of his eccentricities. He would do well with a large, neutral male or a large female dog but will need supervision and slow introductions. Ruvo is ready to walk right beside you through whatever life might throw your way – he is the perfect pal!
