Pillow hogger

Lovely Rufus has a real zest for life and is looking for a relatively active family to play lots of games and go for exciting walks. Rufus is clever, loves his treats and training and will play tuggy for as long as his human friends can manage. He's such a happy, cheeky boy who's always making us smile.

Rufus would like his new family to be at home for good portions of the day as we are unsure how comfortable he feels about being left alone. He would prefer to live in a home with more than one person so he can have lots of company. Rufus has the potential to live with dog savvy children over the age of 10 but please be aware he can be bouncy and forget his manners when he's excited.

Rufus can also be a little 'woofy' when meeting new dogs so his new family will need to do some extra training in this area. He will need to be the only pet in his new home but would benefit from having some regular play friends on his walks once he has settled and done some training. Rufus would like access to quieter walks initially while his new owners continue his socialisation and would benefit from training classes.

Rufus is a clever boy and already knows some basic commends like sit and paw, he generally walks well on the lead but again can sometimes forget his manners. Being an active chap, Rufus would like his own, secure garden to play in.

If you think this cheeky chap is the missing piece of your family, please see the 'how to adopt' section of the web site or click the 'enquire now' button below. Due to the number of applications we receive we are only able to contact successful applications.
