Ruger will melt your heart! As you can see in his photos. He is one lovable and cuddly German Shepherd puppy! He has been socialized with small children, very affectionate and loving towards each one. Ruger loves to have his tummy rubbed while sitting on my lap. He will make someone a very loyal pet. My gorgeous Ruger loves to be right by my side. The German shepherd dog was chosen by the American people as the number two most popular dog in America. I think the reason for this is that a German Shepherd makes excellent companions and/or watch dogs because they are so loyal. Also, the German Shepherd dog is noted for its aloof, gentle and loving disposition, making it an excellent breed for families with children. Ruger has champion ancestors that have been GV-grand victors, CDX-companion dog excellent, CD-companion dog, ROM-register of merit, TC-temperament certified and one ancestor that was a therapy international dog. Ruger will be micro chipped before leaving home.
