Rufus Wainwright

Labrador Retriever [Mix]

Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn with White

Date of Birth: 2011

Medium • Adult • Male • Dog


DOB 2011

Rufus Wainwright was found by his rescuers on a street in South Oak Cliff, running in and out of traffic, covered with ticks and full of fleas – after a LONG bath, lots of love and care and a clean bill of health from the vet (including heartworm negative and tick borne disease negative), this deserving boy is looking to find a new home!!

Rufus W is about two years old, a Labrador/mix, weighs 45 pounds and is just a bundle of energy and activity. He is great with other dogs, big and small alike (there is a Boxer/Great Dane/mix puppy and senior Pit-Bull residing with his foster family) but he wants to chase cats if he sees them.

His foster family is working on his manners. He is housebroken and crate trained where he stays when no one is home. Rufus is a lover and really loves to snuggle, just a big lapdog, and like most other dogs, won't turn away a nice tummy rub – he is right there with you if you want to take him for a run a few times a week as well.

If you are someone who wants a fun and loyal companion, have a fenced yard where he can get plenty of exercise and chase balls, are willing to make him an active part of the family, then Rufus is the dog for you!!

Rufus is not at the shelter but in a foster home. If you want to meet wonderful Rufus, please contact us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to make an appointment to see him.
