Rufus is a survivor and a gem! He came in to rescue after being hit by a car. It was also discovered that he had heartworm, but he has been treated and recovered from all of that. Now he is just looking for his happily ever after. Rufus is a smart guy who is food motivated so training is pretty simple with him. He is already leash, crate and potty trained. He likes his stuffy toys. He also likes the small children in his foster home. He can be an escape artist so a little extra caution will be important in his new home. He does enjoy the company of another dog, but could be an only pet as well. Is Rufus the guy you've been looking for?

Rufus is from Texas. They arrive in Minnesota on 06/10/2023 and will need to be picked up from the Ruff Start Rescue office in Princeton, MN. Since they haven’t arrived yet, they are available exclusively through Ruff Start’s Foster to Adopt (FTA) Program. Click here to learn more about the FTA program. Once they get to Minnesota, they might require further veterinary care. Ruff Start’s veterinary suite is located in Princeton, MN, and, as the foster, you will be required to transport your dog to and from these vetting appointments.

If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
