Hi there! My name is Wizard and I came to Ruff Start from Texas originally. Well, actually - I’m still there! Since I haven’t arrived in Minnesota yet, I’m available exclusively through Ruff Start’s Foster-to-Adopt (FTA) Program. To learn more about the FTA program, please visit www.ruffstartrescue.org/adopt/fostering-to-adopt-available-animals/ .


I found myself at the shelter not too long ago, and BOY am I happy I made it out with a foster. See, shelters in Texas are full to the brim, so we are lucky if we make it out at all. Well, now I'm living the good life and couldn't be happier. Now I live in a foster home with big dogs, little dogs, adults, and children! I do really fantastic with everyone. I'm a spicy little chi though, so I don't like dominant or unaltered male dogs. So, if you have other neutral/submissive males who respect my space, or some beautiful lady pups, I'll do just fine! I'm mostly potty trained, so with a little more practice I'm sure I'll get that current 90% to 100%! I do mark since I'm still waiting to be neutered, but that's nothing a belly band can't fix in the time being! I'm a little cautious of new people, but it doesn't take much time to pass until I want to be your BFF. My foster mom says I was a little stand-offish, but now I seek attention from her whenever I can. I'm learning what it's like to be a house dog, and I'm loving it though. With a little more time, I'll be sure to blossom and show my true personality.

I arrive in Minnesota on 12/4 and will need to be picked up from the Ruff Start Rescue office in Princeton, MN. Once I get there, I might require further veterinary care. Ruff Start’s veterinary suite is located in Princeton, MN, and, as my foster, you will be required to transport me to and from these vetting appointments.
