Meet Rafferty

Rafferty A225118

Rafferty is a 4 year old neutered male who came into the shelter on 3/3/21 as a stray.

Handling video:
Leash Test:

Rafferty is a skinny little street puppy. He was all bones when he arrived and his short little tail had a broken bloody tip. It’s so sad when the shelter is Club Med for dogs. Surprisingly it didn’t take long for Rafferty to put on some weight and start to look healthy. Rafferty is very quiet in his kennel. We usually see him lounging on his bed in a tight ball. He is easy to leash and get outside.

Rafferty is content to do his own thing sniffing his way through the walk but after he gets his first taste of a treat that’s all he wants. Rafferty does know some commands like sit but he also will jump for the treat multiple times. He has skills to walk on his back legs for long stretches of time in attempts of more treats we discovered. This boy has talent! Rafferty allows handling all over and takes his snacks gently (mostly). He already looks more healthy in the short time he’s been with us, now he needs a loving home.
