Spotlight Dog



True to his namesake, Rufio is s bit of a "lost boy". An owner surrender to the shelter because he couldn't handle strangers coming into the house, Rufio has a hard time accepting people he doesn't know.  Once he knows and trusts you he is a very affectionate and playful dog; but it takes time and patience to gain his trust.  Rufio would do best in home without small children and with someone who has experience with herding dogs and the trust issues they often have. He is good with other dogs that don't threaten him or get in his face and lives peacefully with the resident cat.   Rufio is crate-trained, walks well on a leash, loves to play with toys and is always up for a game of fetch.  He would do really well in agility or flyball...something to engage his mind and body as well as build his confidence.  He is neutered and up-to-date on his vaccinations.  If you are interested in Rufio, please contact
