Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

Rufus is a 2-year-old Jack Russell mix who weighs 12 pounds. An owner surrender through no fault of his own, he is shy, but with time warms up nicely. He needs a patient owner to help with house training but we think he will get the hang of it quickly. He’s dog-friendly, but unsure of cats. We will cat-test him if needed. He would do better in a home with older children who respect a dog’s personal space. He is treat-motivated and that is helpful in training him. He’s neutered, microchipped and is current on all vaccinations. He heartworm tested negative and is up to date on flea, tick and heart worm prevention. If you would like to give this spunky boy a forever home, see adoption application info below.
