Meet adoptable deaf 6 month old boxer mix Rufus who is looking for a loving forever home with someone who will cherish him, teach him new things and always keep him safe.

From the Rescue: Well hello there! My name is Rufus! I’m a happy go-lucky 6 month old boxer mix puppy that loves going on adventures! Although I’m not the best at walking on the leash yet, I sure do love walking my foster parents around! My foster parents are also teaching me sign language and I’m currently learning sit, stay, good dog, and lay down.

I also love ringing the bell when I need to go outside to use the bathroom. I get along great with my foster fur-sibling and she is teaching me the ropes on how to be a great dog! I need a patient and dedicated family that not only will be willing to work with a puppy, but also a deaf puppy that is full of infectious energy!

I am currently available through a rescue known as Lending Paws a Hand, Inc. in Sanford, NC. Lending Paws a Hand adopts out to the states of VA, SC, and NC only. I hope you live nearby so I can meet you!
