Rufus came to us in June of 2020. He was having issues with a neighbor dog that the owner could not resolve. He loves walks, cuddles and food. Rufus has struggled with his socialization with other dogs and would do best as the only dog in the home. His leash walking has greatly improved and he walks well with or without his Gentle Leader. He has gone on a road trip with our staff which he really enjoyed! He slept almost the entire 2.5 hour drive both there and back. He also enjoyed a nice stroll through town while on vacation. He did fabulous the entire trip even showing that he is mostly housetrained! He may mark his territory once or twice but after that he does fantastic at letting you know he needs to go. Rufus loves every human that he meets. He is currently in a foster home with three children. If you can open your heart or home please consider this sweetheart!

Rufus is available for our Dog Day Out program! Call the shelter to schedule your adventure with him since he is in foster.
