Meet Rufus

Say what?? Did I hear you mention that you’re looking for a new best friend? Me! Me! Me!

I’m Rufus and I’m a 6 month old bundle of energy ready to be your best friend and share in every adventure! I love to be on the go and they tell me I’m pretty goofy but I really just like to have fun. I’m learning the basics of housebreaking, and I’m trying my best not to be jumpy but it’s just so!
I’m enjoying the other dogs in my foster home and having a big brother or sister to play with in my forever home would be great. I love everyone but I know I may be a little overwhelming for smaller humans, I just can’t help myself. I’m eager to learn if you have the patience to help me (and I know I have the shepherd smarts!).
If you’re interested in having a playful, loving and goofy guy by your side, be sure to reach out to my friends at Real Dog Rescue and submit an application at or by accessing the following link:
