He was legally seized from a homeless man who occupied the rear of a gas station. When found, Rufus had a chain wrapped around his neck. Not a collar. A chain. There was a bucket of water within eyesight of Rufus, but not close enough to drink. Rufus is yet another victim of human error. Rufus has completed intense professional training. He was originally taught that people and other animals would hurt him. Rufus has worked hard and he no longer reacts unfavorably to dogs around him. Rufus is still leery, however, of people he does not know and trust. For this reason, Rufus is a dog who needs a single person household.
