Hello again! Thanks for the warm welcome
I got Ruca from a friends daughter. She was one of a litter of nine. My children and I had been searching for the "right" puppy since our 2 kitties died within 2 months of one another in the spring (they were 17 and 21 years old-I'm convinced the second died of a broken heart after the first one went
) then along came Ruca! Our lives have been filled with joy since then!
She is named after a Sublime song called "Waiting for my Ruca" My 17 year old son named her. He understood "Ruca" to be a slang term in spanish meaning "girl or chick!" My brother-in-law says it means "hand" in Russian! Either way we love her to pieces! I have a 16 year old developementally delayed daughter and Ruca is just amazing with her...loving and gentle! And don't misunderstand...Ruca is all pit pup...full of energy and mischief!
We just love her sooo much! And I'm grateful to have found you all!!!
