Rufus just texted and told us that he is super happy to be sponsored by Sue Leong!

Rufus is a big German boy at 100+ pounds.  He's a very strong presence but an easy going guy.  

Rufus is an owner surrender to us.  His previous owner says that Rufus is an outdoor dog, doesn't nuisance bark and is not destructive.  However, he is young, and when not exercised, he will have fun with whatever he finds: beds, blankets, door mats and other fun stuff.  :)  He is great with other dogs, living with his parents and small dogs.  He is regularly around relatives' big and small dogs, and Rufus is good with all.

Rufus is a happy dog.  He is friendly with strangers, adults and children, being around them regularly.  He is extremely affectionate, laying down for belly rubs and body massages.  

Exercise should be a priority; a tired dog is a good dog!  Rufus had basic obedience as a puppy and know sit and down.  He's rusty on his other commands, but he has very nice manners.  He does not jump up on people.  It appears he will be a fairly easy dog to incorporate into a family.
