Arrival Story: I was an employee at the shelter where Ruff and his brother were brought as strays. Immediately it became apparent that Ruff and Tuff did not have the best of temperaments, often trying to bite anyone that went into their kennel. Tuff eventually came out of shell, got adopted, leaving poor Ruff all alone in his kennel. I knew that he would never get adopted acting the way that he did, and so I took him home to socialize him. Hopefully in a home environment he'd calm down and get adopted and not have to be euthanized! It turned out however that Ruff was just a grumpy little guy in general and knowing that no one else would put up with his attitude problem, I decided to keep him. His personality has mellowed out very nicely, and he shares his home with three other dogs and two cats.
Bio: After he was neutered, Ruff became a lot more pleasant to be around!
