Do you like big mutts with huge smiles? If so, I am your man! Weighing in at 85 lbs of love I am the largest 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. At just 2 1/2 years old, I am in doggie adolescence. Like all adolescents I need patience and consistent training to mature into the awesome dog I am destined to be. A good judge of character, I know what I want when it comes to family. A quiet home with experienced 'big dog' people and active teens to run around a yard with would be perfect. I play well with the other dogs in my foster home, and would enjoy a family with a smaller female playmate! I'm kitty selective, if a cat is calm I'm a cool cat too. Start running and I assume we're playing chase. I love car rides, especially when I can stick my head out the window and let my ears fly and tongue hang out!! I need time to feel safe and to establish trust before a lot of demands are placed upon me, but once that bond is created I'm your pal. Treats, especially when they rain from the sky above my crate, is a great way to win my heart. Just like Clifford, the Big Red Dog there are a lot of theories as to my ancestry. Whatever the mixture of breeds, the result is a devastatingly handsome guy whose primary breed is love. Up to date on vaccines, neutered, and negative for Heartworm and Lyme disease, I am a healthy galoot ready for a new beginning. Rufus is being fostered in Framingham, MA. His adoption fee is $400.
