Rufus H. Levi

Chow Chow / Labrador Retriever

We don't know much about Rufus' beginnings -- only that he came up from Georgia. When we found him at our local animal shelter, he was so shy and scared. They had to carry him out of his kennel. So sad. Happily, Rufus has been transformed. When we brought him home, we thought his back legs were deformed (they bent in severely and were slung low). We've come to realize that he had no muscle tone from being in a kennel so long. Today, he's fit, confident and happy. He now knows how to play (tug is his all-time favorite), swim (we had to teach him! must be the chow), mind basic commands, and score treats (hopping and/or sad face usually work). My husband, who wasn't so sure about getting a dog, is completely smitten. Rufus is pure love. His biggest ambitions in life are to please all humans, snuggle, play, earn the affection of Zoe the Cat (who pretends to be indifferent to his charms), lick anything (stationary or moving), and sleep. With his short muzzle, floppy ears, expressive eyes, he's a heart breaker. Although, we're convinced he's equal part gorilla.
