Rufus, formerly known as Ronald, found himself at Animal Control in a county where they don't adopt pit bulls out to the public - if they are not pulled by a licensed rescue organization, they are euthanized. Rufus has some large calluses on his joints and all his teeth were severely worn down to nubs. He contracted kennel cough and it quickly turned into pneumonia. Lucky for Rufus, a foster stepped up and he got his freedom ride on April 23, 2020. He was very sick and we started treating his kennel cough and pneumonia immediately with antibiotics and nebulizer treatments. Surprisingly enough, Rufus was heartworm negative! It took him a very long time to finally kick his upper respiratory infection, but after being on several antibiotics for several weeks, he's feeling much better.
Rufus is a big, amazing guy. He is a laid back kind of guy that would rather be laying around taking a nap instead of chasing a ball. Rufus just wants to hang out with his people and lay on a big, comfy bed. He is gentle and walks well on a leash. Rufus has proved to be great with children and he has done well with the resident cats - he's actually a bit scared of them. This big lug is actually a bit scared of fireworks and thunderstorms too. With a proper introduction, we think he may do well with other dogs too (after he gets neutered). Rufus is still recovering and will be available for adoption when he has been fully vetted.
