Handsome Rufo is a black Labrador cross boy who was loose in the countryside and running scared in the woods. He is the same size as a standard Labrador – approximately 55 cm tall. Rufo is safe and settled in the shelter, learning to interact with the other dogs and humans. He is a friendly loving boy, who gets on well with everyone. We already know he is friendly with young teenagers and both men and women.
Rufo was found with a chain embedded in his neck. Despite this he is a loving, friendly boy.
Once he was caught by our volunteers, he was rushed straight to our vet. He had a chain embedded in his neck, causing him massive pain and infection. Our vet thinks he was put on a chain at around three to four months old, and it was never removed or loosened. His neck has now completely healed and our vet predicts it will cause no further problems in the future.

For Dogs coming from Spain: This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog- microchip, passport, vaccines, tests for S European diseases, neutering (if old enough), parasite treatment and transport to the UK. We can not home dogs from Spain 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.
Adoption Fee : £365 – to be paid direct to the Spanish rescue to cover travel costs via UK bank account.
