Rufus is a gentle one year old male Terrier puppy who was found without a collar in Hawaiian Gardens on August 30th and brought to the Downey Shelter. This boy was at the shelter for an entire month! Weighing forty pounds, Rufus has a low energy level and is too shutdown in the noisy shelter environment to demonstrate any leash skills. He is timid but he opens up now away from the noisy shelter. He is a lovely dog that just wants hugs, love and from shelter experience is good with other dogs.
