Meet Rufus! He is a 6-7 year old Boxer/ Lab mix who weighs about 80 lbs. Rufus is sweet, smart, goofy and house-trained. He is a handsome dude that turns heads...his photos don't do him justice! He knows a good number of commands including sit, shake, speak, stay, heel, down, come, go to bed, get leash and he can learn to retrieve specific toys by name. Sometimes he tests to see if you'll really make him obey but once he sees you're in charge, he will show off for you! Rufus enjoys fetch and tug-o-war toys. Rufus needs humans who respect his space -- he's not crazy about being hugged on, pulled on, climbed on -- so a home without young children will be required. He does well with both dogs and cats, though.
