Orange County Florida: Save Rufus!
by Julie W.
Rufus is a friendly, one-year-old Beagle pup who has been sentenced to death by Orange County FL Animal Services because of an accident that occurred in the pup’s home. His owners don’t want him destroyed and we need your help because he could be put down any day now!
Rufus’ family is doing everything in their power to stop him from being put down after he bit their four year old child. I’m a friend of Rufus’ family and I know that Rufus is not at all an aggressive dog – he was just excited about his new food (he had never had wet dog food before) and their son startled the puppy from behind while Rufus’s food was being prepared. But the county says that because the boy needed a few stitches, they have to kill Rufus and took the puppy from the family.
The child is not traumatized, the family loves the dog and wants him to live!
