Hi there! My name is Nigel and I came to Ruff Start from Texas originally.

You look like you have a nice, warm lap to sleep on. Would you mind if I took a snooze on it? I love to cuddle and you seem like the perfect cuddle buddy (which is not to be taken lightly, this is the highest compliment I can give). I’ve been looking for you for what feels like an eternity. I used to be a stray, and then Ruff Start found me and told me that I am worthy of a loving and caring home. I didn’t believe it at first but living with my foster family seems like a fairytale!

My resume is quite impressive if I do say so myself: I am an excellent leash walker, I get along with everybody including other dogs, cats, and kids, and I’m great about sharing my stuff despite not always having a guaranteed meal. I am a little timid and need to be handled gently, but I know my new fur-parents will treat me with kindness and show me lots of patience. I am also blind in one eye and was likely born this way, but it doesn’t bother me! I get around just fine and won’t need extra veterinary attention because of it. All in all, I just want to love and be loved. 

So… how about that cuddle?
