Rufus is a cute, scruffy little guy. He weighs 15 lbs. and is 11 months old. Rufus is cautious meeting new people, and for that reason should not be placed in a home with children under 12 years of age. He can growl at strangers and bark if they approach too quickly. The best way to meet Rufus is with a pocket full of doggy treats and a sweet calming voice. He barked and growled at his foster mom when they meet, but by the next day, he was her best friend.
He’s a great snuggler in bed and very affectionate with his sweet kisses. Rufus loves to play with the resident dogs, and is very confident in his foster home – it’s just new surroundings that scare him. He always keeps his crate clean at night and seems to be about housetrained now. Rufus requires a fenced-in-yard as he is very active. Come meet this special boy but be prepared to be patient, and let him come to you on his terms, and you will have a wonderful companion for the rest of his life.
