About Rufus

Adoption Fee: $400
Redbone Coonhound / Lab
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Do you like big mutts? If so, I am your man! Weighing in at 85 lbs. I am the biggest lap dog you could ever hope to meet. Yep, you read that right. I just love to sit in my foster dad's lap. It was love at first sight for me. A good judge of character, I know what I want when it comes to family. Young kids are not for me, but a quiet home with experienced 'big dog' people would be perfect. Older, mature teens are fine! Because I was not treated kindly in the past, I need time to feel safe and to establish trust before a lot of demands are placed upon me. At 2 1/2 years old, I am in doggie adolescence. Like all adolescents I need patience and training to mature into the awesome dog I am destined to be. There are a lot of theories as to my ancestry. Am I a Redbone Coonhound, a Labrador Retriever, a Vizsla or a Rhodesian Ridgeback? Whatever the mixture of breeds, the result is a devastatingly handsome guy. 2018 is going to be my year! More than anything I hope to watch the ball drop with a loving family. Could you be the one for me? Up to date on vaccines, neutered, and negative for Heartworm and Lyme disease, I am a heallthy galoot ready for a new beginning. Rufus is being fostered in Framingham, MA. The adoption fee is $400 If you are interested in finding out more about [Name of Dog], please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser: We expect that all adopted dogs will enroll in a formal dog training class with their new owners. Obedience and training classes are an excellent way to learn more about your newly adopted dog, gain handling and training experience, and improve your relationship with your pet.

We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label
