Hi, my name is Skarsgard and I came from a Local Impound. I currently weigh 49 lbs.

I’m looking for my forever home. My foster is still getting to know me, and I’m getting used to having a human around to play with and love me up. This is what they have found out about me so far:
Skarsgard is a such a goof ball — he  barks at himself in the mirror once in awhile and it makes me laugh so hard!! He eats well and is treat motivated, but we’re still working on redirection after play time is over. Skarsgard is so happy to have a human of his own, that he just wants to play and play and gets a little overzealous at playtime, so we’re working on that.
As you can guess, he LOVES pets, Kongs and mind/treat games, and he’s very energetic. He likes to run, so would likely do great with a family that enjoys outside activities and is a runner. We are working on leash training -- he definitely wants to eat all of the squirrels, so would not recommend cats or small dogs at his new home.
Skarsgard is kennel trained - he sleeps all night and keeps his kennel clean, even though we are still working on house-training.
Check out this short video of Skarsgard sitting nicely!

Are you ready to love on this energetic guy? He’s ready and waiting for you!
If you are interested in getting to know me better, please fill out an adoption application at www.ruffstartrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application . An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
