Ruco's been a busy boy helping us get ready for Strut Your Mutt. He's practicing his leash manners and showing off his agility skills in weekly shelter dog class. He's modeling Strut Your Mutt wear and getting all of us excited for the big event. Due to the generosity of our underwriting sponsor, Kennebunk Savings, 100% of proceeds from sponsorships, registration fees and pledges directly provide medical care for pets in need.
This year, Strut Your Mutt takes place on September 11th at Mother's Beach in Kennebunk. We'll have music, activities for kids, contests for dogs, and a Pet Pavilion, with merchants selling all kinds of pet-related merchandise. It's an event you and your favorite pooch don't want to miss!

Strut Your Mutt

We want nothing more than for Ruco to join us at Strut, not as a shelter dog, but as a dog that's part of a loving new family! And, we're offering a complimentary registration for this year's Strut Your Mutt for Ruco and his people! Imagine Ruco wagging his tail, strutting his stuff, and soaking in the fun with his new family. 

Ruco is a 4 year old Pit Bull. He loves taking walks, going to training classes, and being petted, especially when someone massages his neck. Despite his big size - he weighs in at 73 pounds - he's an easy going fellow looking for the right companion. His ideal family will continue his obedience training and give him the active lifestyle he needs. Ruco would prefer not to live with cats, but has done well with other dogs (female dogs more so than male dogs) and respectful children in the past. He's a star at Summer Camp and can't get enough attention from the campers!

We hope his new family is just around the corner and will stop by to meet this fun boy soon. To learn more about adopting Ruco, visit our website or stop by the adoption center today!
And please don't forget - register you and your pooch for Strut for Mutt today!
