Rugsy is a handsome fellow who enjoys affection on his own terms. If Rugsy approaches you, he wants petting and attention. If he walks away or lays on his bed, it means he wants some time to himself. Because of this, Rugsy would do best in a home without children and in a home with people who understand his communication. Rugsy loves walks and enjoys taking his time to smell lots of interesting things while out and about. Recently Rugsy had knee surgery so he has some physical restrictions. To pass the time, he plays with toys quietly and naps a lot. Rugsy also does well in the car and enjoys the ride. Prior to his knee surgery, Rugsy lived happily with other dogs his size, and once he's healed he'd be happy to live in a home with other dogs.
