Rescue Me ID: 14-04-10-00165Rufus (male)

Mountain Cur Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Gentle abuse-survivor Rufus is in desperate need of a new foster, adopter or rescue group NOW! Rufus's Foster Mom loves him deeply but can no longer care for him due to serious family illness. She is eagerly seeking someone who will continue the love and training she has begun so Rufus becomes the dog he was meant to be. Once he's familiar with you this medium sized lab mix heels beautifully on or off lead. Rufus is quite intelligent and eager to please too, easily learning and performing tricks for you. A sociable boy who thrives on arranged playdates, a female companion dog would bring out the best in him, though a male friend may work ... (Read More)well too. Rufus foster mom has nicknamed him a 'Wonder Dog' who is successfully tackling his only issue: being touched. Rufus suffered a tail-cropping gone bad sometime in early puppyhood. Amateur surgery too close to the spine caused him considerable pain and suffering at the time. Rufus has not allowed himself to be stroked or handled ever since this botched job. When approached for petting he backs away: NO aggression, NO snarling or biting. Just a cautious retreat in fear of more pain or injury. Foster Mom Faye and Rufus have been working on this together and making very good progress! In certain situations Rufus now allows Faye to gently touch his face, a monumental achievement for this sweet soul. Is there room in your home and heart for Rufus the Wonder Dog? A special boy eager to trust and love again, a devoted friend who will follow you to the ends of the earth? Yes, he has an issue about being touched but he's working through that issue just as we work through our own. If Rufus' foster mom cannot find him this home he will have no place to go but the shelter. After pouring so much love into Rufus his foster mom simply cannot accept that outcome without a fight. PLEASE contact FAYE at (615)305-0504 or (615)352-0796 or email and arrange a meet and greet. You will be so impressed and yes you will love this boy. Please give him a chance to live and thrive!

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Andy is a hunka hunka burning love. He's a velcro boy who will stick by your side. He's always ready to play any game you make up, or to plop down on the sofa and help you work through those snacks. He's too clunky and excitable for young children, so he needs a home with adults or older teens. He is a beautiful mahogany Tiger brindle color with deep gold eyes. He has been given Parvo/distemper, rabies and Bordatella vaccinations, as well as de-wormed. Rescues with their 501c3 pull for $5.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Mountain Cur in Tennessee
    Mountain Cur Dogs can make good pets in Tennessee if they match your IifestyIe. The Mountain Cur is a brave, rugged hunting dog. Mountain Curs are protective guardians of their families bred from tough dogs of the pioneer days. Mountain Curs are best suited to life in the country with plenty of space to roam and a job to do. Mountain Curs are smart and trainable, but they do not make good indoor pets.
