Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.DOB: 9/1/2020Hi my name is Charles Rocky but I prefer to go by my less formal name of Charlie. I am a sweet and goofy boy looking for my forever home. I am a spry dude who would thrive in an active home, as I get along great with the other dogs in my foster home and LOVE to run and play alI day with them. As for kitties, my previous foster home had some and I didn’t pay any attention to them, so a home with cats would be fine too. I am a loving boy, but would really benefit from having an experienced dog owner who can help me refine my commands. I am house trained and know how to sit and walk properly on a leash, but I am still a young guy and get excited at times, so an owner with previous canine experience is best for me. My foster mom says that I am a very loving boy who acclimated quickly to her home and had no issues with making myself comfortable in the evenings on her bed lol! I do great at events with both adults and children, however in my own living space, kids can make me quite nervous with their quick and unexpected movements, so a home without young children would work best for me.  So, if you are looking for a laid-back, dapper looking dude who loves other dogs, please consider adding me to your family as your new best friend. (ABF) Up to date on age-appropriate vaccines, neutered and microchipped.   Adoption Fee: $100.00    Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.May 27, 2024, 10:51 am

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.DOB: 09/20/2016 Hi there, my name is Bishop, and I am looking for my forever home. My foster mom says that I couldn't hurt a fly. I am such a loving, gentle, snuggly soul. Although I am 7 years old, I believe that I am 7 years young. I love to meet new people, go on adventures, go on walks, and just spend all my time with people. I have been around all kinds of people, from kids to adults and I love them all. I have also been around dogs and cats, and like them too. I really am just a lovebug and as my foster mom also says: I am petite and sweet. I have been at RUFF for quite some time as I was undergoing treatment for heart-worms, but I am happy to say that the treatment is over, and I am now heart-worm negative! I still need to be neutered, but this can't happen until August, as we have to wait so many months after the treatment was finished to do the surgery. This does not stop me from being adopted as I am still able to go home with you under the foster-to-adopt program that RUFF has. If you are interested in adding such a chill, laid-back, lover of car rides, complete love bug to your family, I'm your guy! Please don't hesitate to email RUFF for more information on me, and for a meet and greet. I look forward to being a part of your family.  (KG/AF*) Up to date on age-appropriate vaccines, will be neutered after my heartworm treatment is completed.    Adoption Fee:  $100.00    Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.May 27, 2024, 10:51 am

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. I’m here! Set up a meet and greet with me!  I was picked up as a stray in September of 2023 and my prior owners never came to claim me. RUFF saved the day and agreed to take me into rescue since I was so nervous and anxious at the shelter. I’m in a foster home with 3 other dogs and I am definitely the submissive one of the group. I like to play with the right buddy and snuggle with my foster mom at night. I really enjoy it when my Nana comes over to check on us when my foster mom is in the office because I like to sit in her lap and get snuggles (I know I’m not really a lap dog).  I am a very smart dog and would thrive with more training. I am eager to learn and would love to find my forever home.   (ABF)   Up to date on age-appropriate vaccines, neutered and micro-chipped.   Adoption Fee:  $200.00     Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.May 27, 2024, 10:51 am
