Rufas is a very sweet ol' timer (10 years). He's a nice mellow guy and would make a great pet for someone who wants a calm companion. Rufas would make an excellent pet for an older couple. He gets along with absolutely everybody! Please give this nice dog a home where he can live out the rest of his years. We now have a new Adoption Application that has to be approved before any of our pets leave. You can fill that out at the time of an adoption. Also please make sure you call the shelter before coming to see Rufas to make sure he is still there and ready to go HOME! Phone: (209) 223-6378. Or you can e-mail Shar at couey@volcano.net for more information.
