Ruffus here! I am a 4 year old Catahoula Hound mix. I weigh 56 pounds but I need to gain some weight but with some love and care that will happen. I know the Sit, Down, Stand, Finish, Side, Front, and Place commands verbally. I have met all of the dogs here and I get along and play well with them all. My favorite to play with is Toby; we will play for hours. I love being outdoors and smelling everything. I love people and do well with kids 8 years and up. I am eager to please but can get distracted and am working on that. On February 24th I will be ready to go to my forever home after my 10 weeks of training in the RPSM Companion Program. My trainers are working hard to help me with distractions. I would do best in a country setting because right now I like to bark at cars. The trainers are going to work hard on this. I have lived with cats but they were the boss so I can only live with very bossy cats. I love other dogs and would do well in a house with another dog. I do need a standard fence but I never tried to jump a 4 foot fence. I have been at the shelter a long time and am just am looking for that family that will give me a chance. I'm neutered and UTD on all my vaccines, HW, FT, and have a microchip of my own. RPSM recommends children 8 years and older. I will require a standard fenced in yard. If you are interested in adopting me, please go to www.rpsm.org to fill out an application. My adoption fee is $250.
