Rufus is an awesome dog! He is a senior guy of 8 or 9. He enjoys walks, lots of belly rubs, and is just a gentle lab mix. Sadly, due to retina disease , he is blind. As with most dogs, this is just how it is - not a disability. He likes to just wander around the yard and enjoy the outdoors. He does enjoy digging a hole to lay and relax. Rufus is easy going and looking for a calm wonderful home with a soft bed that will give him lots of love and attention. He does request a home with no cats. Our adoption team will want to make sure your home is appropriate for a blind dog, but Rufus is just looking for love and attention.
