Rufus ~ in Texas

Looking for a Home

I am Rufus and live in Texas. You may remember me as the boy who was "lost" and then found after 3 months. Well, my mom is really sick and sadly can't keep me, so she has asked Rescue to help find me a home. I am 3 1/2 years old, neutered, microchipped, up to date on my vaccines and just finished treatment for heartworms which I got while "lost". Actually they don't know where I was, but I am here now and full of myself, so please check me out and see if I can't be in your house.

I do know how to bark, so maybe an apartment wouldn't be the best place for me, and since I was perfectly housebroken before I was gone for 3 months, I really don't think that would be hard to pick up again - I am just left alone too long these days and can't hold it.

Rufus Kids and cats are all fine with me, but I need to go to a home with no other male dogs. By the way...if you have a tennis ball, that is all I need - I am in dog heaven with my tennies!!! I am crate trained and will wear a diaper if I have to, but if you help me, maybe I can become a good boy in that department again. I just need some time. My adoption donation is only $300 - what a bargain for handsome dude like me, don'cha think?

Rufus' new family will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to provide proper care for him. Preference will be given to local or in state applicants.

If you interested in Rufus, please fill out an application and mention his name. The application is on-line at If you have already filled out an application, it is not necessary to re-do it...just email Lyda at and let her know you are interested in Rufus (please include your name and state so we can find your application in our files).
