Rufus is a 1 year old Beagle/Golden Retriever mix - he is very sweet but he is scared of everyone and almost everything.  Rufus was saved from a situation where he had never even lived in a house before - he needs a lot of time to warm up to people and places.  He does not know how to walk on a leash and is not housetrained. However, if you give him the time he needs to trust you, he will be your best friend for life. 

When Rufus sees another dog, he gets very excited and immediately wants to be close, but we have no idea how he would be with cats. Rufus needs a home with another dog and people who give him the time and space to decompress. He would do well with older children or an adult- only home, with very low guest traffic. He also needs a very securely fenced yard so that he has a peaceful, quiet place to play while he builds his confidence. Will you be the one to teach Rufus how to trust again?   

If you'd like to meet Rufus, please visit www.ehrdogs.org and fill out an application, and be sure to mention him by name, RUFUS GIO!
