My Story

Date into Rescue:  6/7/2020

Reason for being in rescue:  owner surrender/no time for

Special Needs: No cats

What kind of home would be best for me: Rufus would like a home where he is the star. Rufus enjoys all people and would like all ear scratches to himself. He is a confident, outgoing adult dog who knows what he likes. Rufus enjoys treats, play time and is content to be by himself. 

What is my personality like: Rufus has energy to go and like any jack russell, he can show a stubborn nature if he sees something more interesting. He is very food motivated which will make learning new skills easy to do. 

How do I act when I first meet new people: Rufus is glad to see you! He is the perfect door greeter, ready to welcome you into his world. 

Tips and Tidbits: (6/07/2015) Rufus does not want to share any attention with another dog. When he is with a group of dogs, he has been known to bite the other dogs legs. We have not experienced Rufus being aggressive towards any person, male or female, it is only when other dogs are in his space. 

House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
