|Rufus at 1 Year
|Breed: Jack Russell Terrier||Gender: Male
|Full Name: Rufus Wainwright Wood
|Favorite Food: He's one of Flint River Ranch's biggest fans. Never is there an empty
dish in the morning and at night.
His coat is shining and soft and his teeth are pearly as
|Favorite Activities: His favorite things to do is follow us under
foot every where we go and let us know he loves us with a long
white tail wagging, and kisses. Toys are standard under the couch and
tables and, when he's not chewing on these, there is always
an empty water bottle around to pass the time.
|Special Skills or Responsibilities: Never at a loss for excitement, Rufus has brought so
much joy to our family and friends and we love him dearly;
even late at night when he thinks it's absolutely necessary to wake us
for a late night walk.
|Story: The Humane Society of Butler County was kind enough to
let us take him home this past May 26.
He was found roaming around outside at an age
that appeared to be about 7-9 months.
By his markings and energy, we are almost certain he is
mostly Jack Russell but would appreciate
any other ideas.
Our Vet indicates a condition called pulmonic stenosis
that Jacks have in some form or another, and it tires him out
but he gets right back up when he's rested.
He loves his cousins Masie, the golden retriever, Nita,
the beagle, Crisco, the Pigmy goat, Tommy, the miniature donkey,
and Boots, the lamb. All at Grandma and Granddad's and Aunt Katie's house
on 30 acres in the heart of Butler County, PA. After a day
out there, he's sure to sleep the night...
We love him and are very glad he's with us.
Thanks to the Butler Humane Society and Flint River Ranch pet food.
