About me

Hi there, my name is Rufus I am 16 years old!  I am looking for new owners who have terrier experience. Unfortunately I havent had much luck in life and  I would need an adult only home with no visiting children.  I would need to be the only dog and I would love to live in a quiet location where I can enjoy walks without too much going on. Despite my age I am quiet spritely and would need a secure garden where I could run around and play.  I do have some guarding issues which I am working on and I would also need a cat free home.  I am a very cheeky terrier but I do have a really sweet side when given the time to show it and I am hoping to find the perfect retirement home that I deserve.
