#744, Male, Puppy

I’m Ruger from the Guns and Roses litter. There are 10 of us. My 5 sisters are named for varietals of roses, my 4 brothers and I are namesakes of well known firearms.

We were born at the Abilene shelter on January 22, 2020. A temporary foster with BCRR pulled us from the shelter just a couple hours after we were born, including our dad, Gunner. Our mom and dad were among 16 dogs surrendered after a puppy mill operation was discovered by authorities. We made the 6 hour trek to north Texas once it was safe for us to travel, when we were 3 days old.

Our mom, Rosa, is just 28lbs and our dad is not much bigger, so I’ll probably be around 30lbs when I grow up. I’m a cool and easy going, sweet boy who loves to play with toys and I get along great with other dogs. I’m currently 12lbs, loving, playful and I’ll have the typical Border Collie needs for daily exercise and mental stimulation. Don’t tell the others, but…… our foster mom says I’m the most handsome, and I believe her!
