Meet our darling Rufus Gideon Blue. Rufus is a mix of a Jack Russell and a Chihuahua and has the best of both breeds. Rufus has so much charisma and new owners are sure to be kept on their toes with this spirited lad. Despite his rugged outer core, Rufus is a sensitive little lad who finds many situations overwhelming.

Rufus is very much his own dog and doesn't appreciate being handled or fussed over, new owners will need to have a very hands-off approach to begin with. Rufus will need a quiet, calm home with no resident or visiting children. Once you've broken through his tough exterior, Rufus has shown that with his favourite people he can cuddle up for a gentle fuss. We frequently see Rufus running around showing off all of his toys and he has a real comical side to him!
