A Male Yorkiepoo presently Available For Adoption

If you get the chance to meet me, I know you are going to want to just pick me up and cuddle me.  Well, you are going to have to cool your jets and go slow and easy.  I am not comfortable with too much handling, especially with people I don’t know.  I need time to warm up to strangers but once I do, you will have a new BFF.  In fact, once I feel secure cuddling is my absolute favorite pastime.  My name is Rufus and I am a proud senior Poodle mix who arrived at the Centre with another senior dog, Kaya.  Our family felt that living with a baby and a toddler was just not safe, so they made the difficult decision to surrender us to Animatch.  I’m on the lookout for a homebody without children – grabby hands and youthful energy make me uncomfortable.  I am trained to go on a pee pad but I think that I would enjoy going for walks too.  In fact, I could stand to lose a pound or two and I think it would do us both the world of good to take a few walks every day.  Kaya and I have been together for years and if it’s possible and we’re hoping to get a second chance at happiness …. together.  We are quite eager to feel the security of a permanent place to rest our heads.  If you are looking to experience that extra feel good factor that comes with adopting an older dog, then please consider letting me and Kaya share our golden years with you.  Just think, two dogs – twice the love!   Fill in the Adoption Form and ask for Rufus …. and Kaya.

Please share photos of Rufus with your friends
