Hey there! My name is Rufus. I am a 6-month-old retriever/shepherd mix from South Korea. I currently weigh 24 pounds. My foster mom thinks I'm the cutest boy ever. She loves how happy and joyful I am and says I help to start her days with a smile. I love to run and chase toys that are tossed for me. I mostly walk pretty well on a leash but if I see someone that might be a friend then I pull hard to get to them. My foster mom is trying to help me with that, but I'll probably continue to need help for a while. I'm almost potty-trained, but occasionally have an accident when I get excited or nervous. I'm happy to report that I'm getting better about that every day. I'd love to have a friend around my age to play with. I try to play with the cats I live with but they won't have it, so I just give up. My foster mom thinks I'd do better with older kids over 10 years old. I'm not much of a barker, except when I play, so my foster mom thinks I would do fine with neighbors in close proximity. *******Adoption fee: $700 plus $35 microchip fee******* Rufus is being fostered in the Portland area.
