Adoption Fee: $375

Hi my name is Luciano! I hitched a ride from Oklahoma to Minnesota a couple weeks ago and so far I'm really loving MN life! Everyone is so friendly here! So far a few things about me are I am potty trained and crate trained! I even sometimes get a bedroom all to myself to relax in and I do really well in there! I don't bark in there at all! My foster mom calls me a stage five clinger, cause I just love to be by her! The more time we get to spend together the better! 
I suppose now is the time to tell you that I'd prefer to be an only doggy (or furbaby for that matter). I really don't like to share my toys and things so if I can have ALLL your attention, oh boy would that be amazing! I asked Santa for a familyfor Christmas and really am hoping to get it! Could it be you? 
Since he is heartworm positive.  He will need to be treated in at our clinic in Princeton. Heartworm treatment consists of 3 injections. The first injection will be in roughly 30 days after coming into rescue. The the 2nd and 3rd injections happen 30 days after that. When a dog is going through heartworm treatment, they should be on "restrictions", meaning a lot of lap time, crate time and always on a leash. Heartworm disease is NOT contagious, it is transported via mosquitos.   Here is a great article explaining what heartworm is and how it's treated:

An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal.  Please check out our website, for more details and additional pictures on any of our animals! All Ruff Start dogs and cats are spayed/neutered, up to date on age appropriate vaccines, microchipped, dewormed, and on monthly flea/tick and heartworm prevention (dogs) as well as heartworm tested (dogs). Ruff Start Rescue is a foster based rescue. Animals are located in homes throughout Minnesota. We do not have a facility where animals are kept. Ruff Start Rescue Adoption Policies:
