Hi my name is Rufus. I am a 9-month-old Standard Rat Terrier maybe Sheltie mix and I weight about 30 pounds. I really love to run and play with all my foster siblings. There are 4 of them for me to play with here. I am also great at amusing myself with toy. I love fetch with or without a person. If someone will throw the ball I will get it and bring it back again and again. If no one wants to toss it I can toss it in the air and catch it all by myself. I also love chewing on antlers and other bone like toys. I love to cuddle and get scratched all over and will give gentle kisses as thanks. I am a little apprehensive with fast movement so I would probably be happiest in a family that doesn’t have young kids that might want to chase me or pounce on me. I walk well on a leash; I am potty trained and crate trained. I also know sit and place, which is like stay but a little different. We are working on make my downs better too. I think I would be best with a person that has dog experience and that would be a good leader for me to learn from. I would really love a family or person all to myself. If you want a fun loving dog to play with please fill out an application at our website,www.helpinganimals.org, and come meet me!
