Meet Rufus!

So John and I headed to the Kendall County Fair on Saturday. We expected to see some random fair type items, eat some horrible fried food and catch the rodeo. Instead we got sidetracked and came home with this little guy.


Meet Eddie, now Rufus! He's a year and a half old Jack Russell. He was rescued from the San Antonio Animal Control back in February. The Hill Country Pet Rescue picked him up on the day he was scheduled to be euthanized. Lucky little guy! He's real shy and was probably abused. He's a little scared of men more than women, but he's warmed up to John in just a day and loves all over him now.

Reese and Riley are doing well with him too. Reese and he have become buddies; Riley, he doesn't quite know what to think. He kind of ignores him and hides from him sometimes. They all played a bit tonight and we've caught him a Riley laying next to eachother taking naps, so I think they'll do just fine.

He's a little skittish, but otherwise his behavior has been really great. We haven't caught him chewing on anything, we haven't had a single accident in the house (knock on wood), he walks really well on the leash, and he really loves his crate. He also did great with his first bath (I think we've got a water dog on our hands finally).


The worst thing he does is that in the morning he takes a giant bound out of the crate and straight onto the bed and a still sleeping John (I think it's hilarious). He gets right off the bed or anything else when you tell him get down. I think he's just testing his limits to see where's he's allowed.


So that's our new addition!


  1. How cute! I can't wait to see lots more of this little guy!

  2. Faith-- I'm totally proud of you! I lecture people CONSTANTLY on reasons to adopt, so I'm glad SOMEONE "Opts to Adopt" as the ads say.

    I tried to get Erin to adopt, but she ended up buying Sadie anyway. (Which worked out in the end, because turns out Sadie was a puppymill dog.)

    Let me know if you need help with training or anything. I trained Abby to be a service dog myself, so I know a lot of techniques. But, from the sounds of it, looks like you wont need any assistance. =)

    Good luck with your new FurBaby. He's adorable. =)
