Biography

Rufus was originally found as a stray in Forsyth County. He was then adopted from the shelter and later returned because he did not do well with her boyfriend. Rufus has done well with both men and women here. He was very overweight and has been doing well on a diet and has lost about 8 lbs. He is still needing to lose a few more as his ideal weigh is about 15-16lbs. Rufus is very sweet and does great with other dogs.

Rufus had his cataracts evaluated recently and got good news – he can see just fine. His cataracts are age related and will not progress quickly.  The docs felt that surgery would not be in his best interests.

Sponsorship

Can’t have a dog of your own? Have a soft spot for old, sick or hard to place dogs? It only takes a $20 a month donation for me to be your virtual dog!  I need at least 10 virtual adopters (sponsors) to help cover my monthly costs.  If I have medical challenges I need even more! The caregivers at Carolina Poodle Rescue will do the rest.  Just think, without ever having to leave your home, you can have your very own online dog that will send you update emails, make Facebook posts, and be eternally grateful for your support!  Go to the donate link at the top of the page for instructions as to how to donate. Questions?  Email: cprsosdogs@carolinapoodlerescue.org

I LOVE MY Virtual Adopters;  BARB G, JENNIFER R, WADE S, STEVE Z
