If you're looking for a laid back, easy going dog, then Mr. Rufus is your guy.

He's known as Mr. Rufus, he's a five year old rat terrier mix and weighs about 18 pounds and is available for adoption currently at the Humane Society's Pets Fur People in Tyler. Director Gayle Helms describes Mr. Rufus as being super sweet, very affectionate and doesn't appear to have a mean bone in his body. He's pretty laid back and loves to hop in the car and run about town helping to complete your errands. Mr. Rufus has been neutered, is current on starting vaccinations including rabies and has been microchipped for identification purposes. In addition, Mr. Rufus will go home with a starter kit of food, bedding, a collar and leash and a certificate for half price on basic obedience from Tyler Obedience Training Club.
