Hi! My name is Rufus!

I'm a handsome guy who's hoping to find my perfect home! I'm picky about my doggy friends, so make sure you bring in any dogs to meet me and ensure a good fit. I know some basic commands like how to sit, but I'll need some help learning how to be the best dog ever. An adult only home would be best for me where I can focus on learning and bonding with you! If you think I could be the one for you, come on down to meet me today!

**Thanks to McS Foundation, my adoption fee has been sponsored, which means you can take me home for FREE!**

No appointment necessary!

Meet me at AAWL's Main Shelter!
