Handsome Rufus and a young fluffy coated tan and white Podenco boy with the fashionable Pod BIG ears !
Rufus is a medium size chap and he really is a sweet, gentle, quiet and laid back boy that takes everything in his stride and will make a super family pet.
His Best Points :
Gentle and loving who likes cats dogs and children
Foster Report :
He is a perfect gentleman, he’s never dirty in the house and is a very loving dog and always gives us lots of kisses. He loves the company of the others here and equally I feel would enjoy being an only dog that gets all the attention.
He’s now good on the lead and very respectful of me, allowing me to always go first out the door.
He loves his walks on the lead. I don’t let him off because he runs for hours and gets very thin. We only took him in 3 weeks ago and he has gained weight but needs to gain more.

Adopting A DogWatch UK Rescue Dog
Before being adopted, dogs will have bee vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas.
If old enough they will have been neutered, if too young the new owners will need to ensure this is done.
All dogs are microchipped
All new owners can apply for 4 weeks Pet Insurance FREE, to be activated from the link on our website
For Rescue Dogs coming from overseas
This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog including
– microchip, pet passport, vaccines, tests for South European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from overseas to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough.
Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
