Rufio is an 8½ year old white Toy Poodle, tipping the scale at a mind boggling 5 lbs, 6 oz. He is the quintessential lap dog, having spent most every waking (and napping) moment of his life in the lap of his previous owner, an elderly gentleman who recently passed away. He does well with other dogs as long as they aren’t too aggressive or overly energetic; the same is true of children, as well as cats! He is mostly blind in one eye, so quick/unexpected moves from the left can startle him.
Rufio is completely house trained, and prefers self regulated feeding times. His size and curiosity require a well sealed backyard, and whole larger than 3" is an escape route! He is also leash trained and (though optional) heLOVES walks; a car ride for any reason make him just as happy.
Rufio's ideal home would be with a retired couple who enjoy reading & watching TV - basically a relatively quiet environment where someone is always providing him with a lap. As a "1a" alternative to that perfect home, a single person who works from home and spends hours at the computer while needing a breathing lap warmer would make him just as happy!
