Seriously, who could go wrong with a name like Bold Ruckus?  To further the choice of name for this boy, the horse Ruckus had a mare named Raise-A-Ruckus ..... really, could this be more perfect with a momma like Moka?

So, Ruckus is staying here after a lot of deliberation.  There was just something about him from about 4 weeks old that caught my eye while still in the whelping pen, but as I had the puppies out and about more and more, he just kinda got to me.



Ruckus temperament tested much to my delight as a working prospect with great conformation, so we are going to be starting his obedience and tracking right away and well as getting him ready for the show ring some time in the new year. 

He is very bold, outgoing and is into everything and loves to meet new people and new dogs, so I am hoping he will fill the big paw steps left behind by the loss of my Justice in June 2007. The house has not been the same with out a boy Rottweiler and he just seems to have what I am looking for. 

Structurally, he is very nice with fantastic bone, a short back, good shoulder layback, nice rear angles and a dark eye.  At two years old, he is 100lbs just shy of 26 inches tall.

Ruckus is truly a little beast - he learned to speak before he knew his name.  He is just that kind of temperament that you want when you are looking for a working prospect.  I am so excited to get working with him.


He is a smart little guy fitting into the household quite easily.  He and Seeker are quite inseparable, although we try.  And he is not lacking at all in confidence.  Everything he has experienced so far he has taken in stride with no real signs of fear at all.  I forgot what raising a male Rottweiler puppy was like and I am quite enjoying him.

He finished up his puppy classes in December 2007 and is now busy with novice/open work and is doing so with flying colors if I must say so myself!


Ruckus 15 months old!  Thanks to Garry Baldwin for this fantastic photo!


After Ruckus's first show weekend, of which he was shown 2 days, he came home with a Reserve Winners Male ribbon and his first point taking Winners Male on Sunday.  He handled beautifully, stood perfectly for exam and moved out great. 

Ruckus earned his HIC title in May 2008 with 5 of his siblings.  Click here to see more of this busy test!

Ruckus earned 3 more points towards his Canadian Championship in August 2008 in Cranbrook, BC, along with his Temperament test title.  He did so going Best of Winners and BEST OF BREED, breeder-owner handled!  His littermates, Kalli and Brogan, both finished their championships this same weekend which made it all that much more exciting!

Ruckus learning to track in October 2008!
In Edmonton in September 2008, Ruckus and I thought we would give rally a try for one trial.  Okay, being 13 months old at the time, I didn't expect too much, but he pulled off his first Rally Novice leg with a respectable 88.  He needed more polishing, but he did well for such a young dog.

We also attended a tracking seminar here in Calgary by Ed Presnell (AKC/CKC tracking judge) in October 2008 where we discovered Ruckus really can track too!!!

In all of his glory, Ruckus finished his RN in Red Deer in November 2008.  My handler error lost him 10 points on Saturday and turned his 90 into an 80, but he earned an 89 on Sunday for the title.  Ruckus turns 15 months the week after he earned this title.  He was certainly amusing to watch I am sure, he was pretty amusing to handle.  I am pretty sure he is spring-loaded after these trials. 



We thought it might be nice for Ruckus to enter the show ring again, so at the CKOC show here in Calgary in March 2009, Ruckus did so going Best of Breed over SPECIALS for a 3 point win!  He did so under judge Cheryl Myers Egerton.  He had tons of fun in the ring and although he is still not quite mature, he held his own!

Ruckus finished his Championship in May 2009 in Medicine Hat with 2 more Best of Breed wins!  He was breeder/owner/handled to his all of his points!

At the 2009 RCC National Specialty here in Calgary in July 2009, Ruckus earned the first leg of his PCD title.  He also dabbled a little bit in rally earned a third place score of 97 in rally novice ....  He then went on to finish his PCD at the AKC show 2 weeks later, also in Calgary.  He was surprisingly together and his usual boisterous self in the ring, I was very pleased with him.


To say Ruckus likes water would be an understatement!


So, Who Was Bold Ruckus?

Bold Ruckus, Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame Inductee in 2006, was known for being a fast horse becoming a stakes winner in 1979 at the Meadowlands, but was more well-known for his talents as a sire.  He has produced MANY million dollar sons and daughters.

He also has an Alberta connection as he was purchased in 1977 by Gerald E. Going of Wetaskawin, Alberta as a yearling.
