Rufus Needs a New Home

Rufus, 8 years old, fostered in Florida
Dog ID#: 150574-P-D-FL

Rufus was abandoned and found wandering in Florida. Despite this, he is a really happy dog - his tail wags non-stop. Rufus is good with people and dogs of all ages and sizes, but would do best in a home without cats. This handsome guy loves to snuggle!!! He is not at all wary of new people and will try to get up in everyones lap for a head rub. He does not jump up when being greeted and has no food aggression. He has almost learned SIT and is working on STAY. Even though he is an older dog that spends most of his time napping on the couch, he is in great shape and has a lot of energy. He goes on a daily 2 - 3 mile run with his Foster mom every day. Rufus does have some separation anxiety and the daily exercise helps this, but ideally he would find a home where someone is not gone for long parts of the day. He is now living with three older dogs and likes being part of the pack, but would enjoy a dog who would play with him. This boy is already neutered, fully vaccinated and Heartworm negative.
