Location: Lawton, OK
Rufio’s owner is already stationed in Japan, and his family member caring for him can no longer continue, and a foster is needed April 1, 2023- March 31, 2025. They might return to the states sooner, but March 31, 2025 is the expected return date. Located in Lawton, OK, the owner indicates they can transport within an 12 hour radius.
He’s pure white with striking blue eyes and very fluffy. Rufio is a great conversationalist and will cuddle on the couch with you. The owner has had him since he was born from my other dog and love him with all my heart.
Rufio is a beautiful, friendly husky, who enjoys having a “yelling/talking” match with you and sometimes to see who can be the loudest, but he will calm/quiet down when you tell him to. He is a husky, so he can be very talkative, he does occasionally growl, even when being petted, but that’s just how he talks. If his ears are up and tail is wagging while growling, it’s okay. He does not have any destructive behavior that the owner knows of.
He gets along with most dogs, but can be defensive if cornered by an alpha. Rufio can be territorial of his kennel as that his his area/room. Do not reach in his kennel to pet him while he is in there or while he is eating.
Preferred foster would be someone who has a large fenced yard, possibly another medium sized dog so he has someone to play with. A family that will give him the time and attention that he needs. Preferably with no small children/babies who will try to understand him and love him.
