Hi, I am Dawson and I arrived to MN all the way from San Juan, PR just in time for the Holidays and New Year...boy would I love to have my forever home to start off 2021! My beautiful brown eyes, salt and pepper fur and snaggle tooth are likely to melt your heart...just wait until you learn about how sweet I am too...

I am a happy go lucky guy and I am adjusting great to my new rescued life. I love to play with toys, go on walks and enjoy treats...a lot! My foster Mom gave me time to settle into my new space and I really appreciated that. I love playing with my toys with foster parents and enjoy pets and being doted over. 
I can be a little squirmy when I am being held but that is usually because I am so excited to get outside. I have not had any accidents inside the house or in my xpen space but I have been marking inside the house. I am not neutered yet so we suspect that is the reason for that behavior. To remedy for now, my Foster Mom is using belly bands when I am out and about and keeping me on a leash by her, so she can keep a close eye on me. 
I am dog friendly but do better with dogs who give me space or that are disinterested or better yet, dogs that are my size. I am cat friendly and do not mind cats at all. I would do great as an only pet or with a friendly dog my size and energy level.
I am a quiet boy and I would do well in all kinds of home settings! I
I like men and women but due to my age and size, I would do best in a home with older respectful kids. 
I have some vetting needed  (my neuter), so I will not be available for adoption officially until the beginning of the New Year.  I have some itchiness under my neck and a little sneezing right now so I might have allergies or something like that but we are figuring that all out now too. 
I am accepting applications and open to meet and greets before my vetting is done to have my adoption lined up, for the right family. 

An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal.  Please check out our website, www.ruffstartrescue.org for more details and additional pictures on any of our animals!
