Rufus

Shepherd / Labrador Retriever [Mix]

Color: Black with White

Date of Birth: 05/2012

Medium • Baby • Unk • Dog

 

DOB 5/2012

Rufus and his sisters and brothers were found by a good Samaritan in south Dallas.

They were hot, hungry, thirsty and wandering into the street. They were taken in and given a temporary home so they could be safe. The puppies have had two rounds of puppy shots and de-worming. They are healthy and well adjusted around adult dogs and people. The puppies were found at around 5 – 6 weeks of age and now are 8 – 9 weeks old (as of 1st week in June). They range (as of 1st week in June between 7 and 9 pounds!)

Rufus is the second largest of a litter of six. He has the cutest markings including one around his left eye that makes you smile. He is the most mature and likes to hang out with the older, bigger dogs.

Rufus is a cute, sweet puppy with a lot of growing up to do. He needs an owner who will house train him, teach him good dog manners, and most of all spend a lot of time with him to integrate him into the family. Right now, him and his sisters and brothers run and play, tumble over each other, chase, wrestle, sleep and eat –just being typical puppies. They want to snuggle against you when you pick them up but if you put them down, they are off to playful things!! Is there anything cuter than a puppy??

Please consider opening your home up to sweet Rufus, you won’t regret it.

Rufus is not at the shelter but in a foster home If you would like to meet or ask other questions about him, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
