Rufus's dad says: We found Rufus surfing an online adoption page advertising that they would be at the local pet-supply store the next day. After we saw his picture we had a mission in mind to rescue that pup and make him a member of our family. So the next day we were there waiting when they arrived, quickly filled out an adoption questionnaire, and convinced the people in charge we were the family for him. Luckily for us they agreed and we brought Rufus home that day. Rufus is a mix of border collie and a Shetland sheepdog and as such he's a bundle of energy. He's a very playful and smart puppy and keeps us on our toes. He can sit, lie down, shake paw, high five, crawl, speak, and even jump low hoops. It takes only one or two training lessons for him to grasp most tricks and is eager to learn, though we're careful not to overstress him at this tender young age. He's terrific!
