I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Rufus is a sweet, shy, gentle little guy! He was born in April/May 2016 and is a nice size at 35-40 lbs. He was rescued from the Ft. McDowell Indian Reservation. Out there he hadn't been treated very nicely by people, and was pretty terrified of everything when we first got him. Rufus has settled in well and is affectionate with the family now, but he needs a kind family who is willing to spend some time helping her realize that people won't hurt him. We've rescued lots of dogs like Rufus, and they always turn out to be wonderful family dogs when given love and patience. He comes when called and licks our hands. He even likes to be petted now! Rufus gains confidence from his nice doggy friends, so he MUST have another friendly dog in the house as a positive role model. He is easily intimidated by other strong alpha dogs, so he needs a dog who won't bully him. He also needs a yard, as he is not the type of dog to do well in an apartment. Rufus is a really good puppy and he is going to be a great dog! He is very smart. He was housebroken and crate-trained very quickly! Adoption fee for Rufus is $175, and he is already neutered, micro-chipped, and has received his rabies and DAPP puppy vaccinations. If you are interested in meeting Rufus, please email Delon.Washo@asu.edu or text your email address to 602-295-4518 and let us know that you are interested in filling out an application on Rufus.
AZ Prussian Snailhound Dog Rescue would like to remind everyone that puppies are a big commitment and require a lot of attention. Puppies often exhibit undesirable behaviors such as chewing and digging. Of course they also are a lot of fun and are very lovable too. When choosing a puppy please consider how much time you will be able to spend training and socializing your new puppy.
