Rufus‘s Story

❤️Rufus is Available❤️

Please READ the bio and adoption requirements first to make sure you are a perfect fit BEFORE APPLYING.

Hi!  I’m Rufus! I’m the sweetest 60 pound 1-year-old male Goldendoodle that you will ever meet! I do shed a little, but I get brushed once a day so it’s not noticeable. This also helps make sure I don’t get matted. 

I am a sweet, huggable goofball kinda guy. I keep my foster parents laughing continuously. When they play golf I like to chase after the balls - it’s so much fun! They say I’m very happy-go-lucky, whatever that means. I also hear them telling other humans that I’m the most obedient dog they have ever had. I’m so well behaved. I like being around them to hang out and relax. I love kiddos of all ages and do well with all dogs too.

At night, I sleep in my crate without a peep like a good boy, and sometimes I sleep on the floor outside my crate. At 8 AM I go outside so I can go potty, then I have my food. I munch on it casually here and there throughout the day between play and naps. I go outside to potty midday, right before dinner at 5 PM, then again around 10 PM before bedtime.

I like going on walks, and enjoy the exercise, I do okay while on a leash. I’m crate and potty trained, but do thrive on a set schedule. My foster parents say that I have the best temperament and I’ll be the best addition to my forever family.

- Fenced yard
- Family willing to take me to the dog park, I love it!
- Family without allergy issues since I do shed.
- I love kiddos so the more humans to give me love the better!
