"My name is Ruger, and I'm a 2-year-old male terrier and Chihuahua mix. After being abandoned near a highway, my brothers (Remington and Trigger) and I lived as strays for weeks until we were rescued. With a little coaxing and the promise of food, some caring HOPE members saved us from a potentially terrible fate. Although I'm a bit shy, I should come out of my shell soon enough. I really am a sweet boy, but I will need an understanding owner to help me become accustomed to life as a pet. Are you the right person for me? Please call 985-859-5246."
