CNY SPCA Pet of the Week: Rufus is one cool guy

Rufus means “cool” and “awesome,” and that’s the perfect name for our dog of the week. Rufus is a 3-year-old neutered male pit bull mix. He is happy, silly and goofy. He loves to run, and he walks very nicely on a leash. He would do best as the only pet with older children. He’s very trainable — he already knows sit, and he’s eager to learn more. If you’d like to be his teacher, call the CNYSPCA at 454-4479 and meet the wonderful Rufus!

His chances for adoption looked grim. Then Duke’s photo was featured on Facebook on a page dedicated to dogs like him who have spent months or even years in shelters. The Patience Project’s picture was shared on one page after another and ultimately made its way to Gerry Ioannone in Rochester.
