My name is Rufus! I’m about 3 years old and am a big healthy boy GSD-I weigh about 80 pounds. 
I’m friendly and really like to play. I enjoy going to the dog park and love to play with other dogs. I’m gentle with the small ones too.  I think kids are fun even though I don’t currently live with any. 
I will make a great family pet but do need someone willing to teach me some obedience skills and remind me of my manners.  I still tend to jump when I get excited. And I do love meeting new people! I’m quite social.
I will alarm bark when something seem unusual but will quiet down when I’m told everything is ok. And, I’m not a serious protective type GSD. I’ve been told I’m kind of goofy. 
My house manners are very nice.
I’ll need to work on my leash skills – I haven’t gotten a lot of practice walking on leash. But I am willing to learn if you are willing to work with me! Because I'm so social, I would love to learn how to walk nicely on leash. 
I also love car rides and would be a great dog to pal around with.
Something you should know about me is that I shouldn’t live with cats as I think small critters are prey and I like to chase them. 
Toys are fun and I also like to have safe things to chew on.
I am a self-assured boy and have been told that I’m easy to love…..Awww.
Hopefully you’d like to meet me. I’ll be waiting in Marin.
