Pet of the Week: Ready Rufus is ready for a forever home

Meet Ready Rufus, he has a knack for fashion and lives to charm the ladies… and men with his sweet, playful personality.

Here’s what his friends at Safe Haven Puppy Rescue say about him:

Rufus is confused. He is cute, right? He loves people. He is always happy to see other dogs — so why has he not found his family yet? He’s done everything right — completed agility courses in record time, gone in the swimming pool and looked cool while doing it, and has been nice to everyone he has met.

He loves toys. (Give him a Kong or a bone, and he’ll be occupied for hours. Give him a peanut butter-filled kong, and he is in doggie heaven.) He takes treats ever so gently from your hand. He loves to snuggle and bury his head into your chest — his way of showing how much love he has to give and how appreciative he is for attention. He’s even competed in our summer event competition as Jimmy Buffet’s sidekick (see primary picture). He is hopeful that maybe the suave, debonair approach might work. (See how handsome he is in the green hat?) I mean this boy is up for anything! Yes, Rufus has many “looks,” but only one sweet, funny personality.

If you would like this handsome, people-pleasing dude bringing all these talents with him — promising endless fun and laughter (yes, he thinks he is a comedian also) — let us know! Lots of personality with this boy! Rufus is 70 pounds and is 2 years old. He is neutered and up to date on all his shots. I mean, this pup is the whole package!

Rufus carries an adoption fee of $389, which includes his microchip. This attractive, affectionate guy is going to bring lots of joy to some lucky adopters, so don’t delay, get your application in to his coordinator at my email below [email protected].

Are you ready for Ready Rufus to join your pack?
