Rescue Me ID: 18-03-09-00067Rufus (male)

Mountain Cur Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Special needs: Poor Rufus had a hard start in life. Evaluation suggest he was placed on a chain at a very young age and never petted or loved. It also appears they hacked off his tail with a hack saw and did it very short. (shorter than a vet would have done). Then he either escaped or they just put him out to fend for himself. He had to be trapped to catch so he could be helped as he would not come close to any human. The day come he was caught, he was estimated at about 1 year of age. We immediately began socializing him with humans...this took months of slow motion, effort, patience, and love. Everytime we got close, he would groan and ... (Read More)shiver. After almost 4 months he could be touched. It took a couple more months before leash training could even begin. Rufus was introduced to a couple of other dogs at this time, he played, but a bit rough. On walks he was constantly aware of all of the surroundings keeping his head high and on alert, never relaxed. 'Took him to cross the bridge over interstate thought maybe build confidence as he was doing much better on his walks although I still couldn't touch him, so when we got there he would not cross went a few feet that was it again & again we walked up to the bridge would not cross, one day I was running with him we ran onto the bridge got halfway across & I stopped with him he was scared then we took of running turned and went back up the ramp ran all the way across no problem he was fine to cross after that'he was now inside a privacy fenced and tethered on a cable, a thunderstorm came thru and he was found hiding in his house, shaking and terrified, this is when he decided a human touch was OK. A milestone had happened today! New hope had been established, so we began trying even harder to help this sweet boy.aFter about a year he would be touched, walked on a leash and began to come inside. He quickly decided to LOVE the sofa :) HE is now housetrained, up to date on shots, on HW preventative, and lives at a foster home with 3 small dogs and his big dog girl friend Brownie.Strangers show up he barks at the fence line but if they come inside and sit on the sofa, stay quiet, in minutes he will come offer to let them pet his back side....He loves the outdoors during the daytime. NEVER during thunderstorms or fireworks! He has been in foster care for 4 years now. He is estimated at 5 years old, and now he is READY FOR A FAMILY TO CALL HIS OWN. Is this YOUR next boy? He needs a quiet, loving, HOME, with a sofa. He has come so far with his recovery, would you consider helping this poor baby have the 'best' now, as he has already endured some of the 'worst'???

Mountain Cur Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Male Dogs Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    Zoey came in off the streets of MEmphis,Tn , where she wasnt doing very well. She was a bag of bones. SHe has gained 20pounds and been spayed and is ready for her new home. SHe can go out with other dogs but has food aggression, which may resolve in time but from being so starved she is still afraid food will be gone and will protect what she has. So we are recommending that any other dog she is with be fed in seperate rooms or return her to her crate during feeding time. Other than this Zoey appears to be house trained, like to lie around in the house. Very friendly girl. guessing 2 yr old.
