Rufo, the Shelter Dog, Waits Six Years for His Perfect Person

Originally published on my new website, on February 24, 2012

This is a brief story and video that will warm your heart and feed your soul.  I found this originally on, which, by the way, is a great site for both informative videos and et cetera if you love dogs.

We’ve all read the “Lassie, Come Home” type of stories and seen the woman rescues dog, man loves dog videos, and this one is in the latter category.  But, this one IS different.  A municipal shelter homes a dog, Rufo, for six years and doesn’t give up on him.  Finally, Rufo finds his bliss.

The next time you pick up the newspaper, watch TV or the web, and wonder if there is any humanity left in the world, replay this video.  Tissues may be required.
