Hi there! My name is Ian, but my foster mom and dad call me Schmitty (my foster dad is weird like

that). I came to Ruff Start Rescue from a shelter in Oklahoma. I was only here for a few days when I

started not feeling well. My foster mom made me go to the vet, who diagnosed me with Pneumonia

and Kennel Cough. I had to take icky medicine, but I’m feeling 100% better now and back to being a


I am very shy and need some time to warm up to you before I feel comfortable, but once I do I will

follow you anywhere. My favorite spot in the world is on my blanket on the couch cuddling with my

foster mom. I absolutely LOVE my toys. My foster mom can’t help but laugh at me when she comes

home from work and sees that I took all my toys out of the bin and spread them all over the house. I

can’t contain my excitement when I go outside. I’m like a completely different dog when the fresh air

hits my nose. I love to run and roll in the grass. I LOVE walks and have pretty much mastered walking

on a leash. I get along great with my foster mom’s two resident dogs. There are two cats as well, but I

ignore them. I am house broken and crate trained. Won’t you consider adding me to your family??

I feel Ian would do best in a home with another dog, or with a patient family willing to give him a lot of

attention. I’m not sure how he would react to young children. He is hesitant of people coming directly

at him to pet him or pick him up, but I’m hoping he will eventually be comfortable enough to get over

that. He is the sweetest little peanut and just wants to please you.
