About Rufus

Rufus has a lovely sweet side to him, but he can quickly change and will occasionally bite. We are working with him when doing his injection as this is when he can become aggressive but he is progressing well.

What Rufus Needs from his Forever Home

Rufus will need an owner who understand and/or is willing to learn about his condition. We can show you how to do his injections, it’s easy but his routine must be adhered to. He will need regular checks with the vets to monitor his condition.

Ideally it would be nice for someone to adopt him that has previously dealt with animals with diabetes, however the injections are easy and can be done by any adult. He’s so used to it now, it takes seconds.

He will need to visit the vet twice a year to check his glucose curves are stable.
