About me

My name is Rufus and I am a 16 year old Terrier Cross who came to the centre as my previous owners were unable to look after me anymore.

For a 16 year old, I am a very active boy and love a good walk or a play with a squeaky toys, I have quite the collection! The staff here have been helping me learn the correct way to play too!

I have been doing some desensitisation work around other animals as I am not very keen on them at the moment, however I am happy to wear my muzzle on my walks! Potential owners would need to understand that I would need to wear my muzzle in public at all times and prefer to be walked in quieter areas.

I would love an owner who is patient, experienced with terriers and can continue the training I have had here at the centre. I can be very sweet and cuddly and would need a adult only, pet free home so I can have all the attention!

I am very popular with the staff and even have my own Facebook page!

Do you have a home for me?
