Biography

Rufus is an incredibly sweet and loving boy who loves to play, he likes to fetch! He has been friendly with every person he has met so far, and was living with children who he was good with. He is sometimes too friendly though, and will need a strong hand as he does jump and is still learning not to pull on his leash. He is mostly a Pit/Husky mix and I was told he's around 70 lbs. so he's strong and full of energy.

Rufus has been rehomed a couple of times and it hasn't tarnished his friendliness with humans, but he has not had a real chance to meet other dogs or animals much and has displayed some dog aggression, and has gone after smaller animals such as cats and chickens.

He was adopted from a shelter when he was little, but his first owner passed away. His second owner is no longer able to care for him and so he's come to me, and I am attempting to find this guy a forever home.

He would do best in a home where he gets to go on outdoor adventures (not around other dogs), or has a good way to burn off the excess energy he's very full of. Should have no other pets, and should meet any children first as he's only known two.
