Meet Rufus – Rufus and his sibling were hanging around a dollar store in Houston's East End in July 2013. One of the clerks contacted Barrio Dogs to see if we could help. By the time we were able to trap Rufus, his sibling had been hit by a car and killed. Luckily, Rufus is now safe and on his way to a better life.
Rufus is a Chihuahua mix, born around February 2013. At 5 months, he weighs 6 pounds and is most likely fully grown. He was vetted and treated for demodex and intestinal worms. He will be neutered before he is adopted.
Rufus was initially fostered in a home with several large dogs and loved hanging out and playing with them. He is now in a foster home with smaller dogs and he gets along well with them too. He is not so crazy about cats and barks at them. He is a super sweet pup who loves to sit in people's laps.
