Personality: Meet Ruffy! He was surrendered to us along with Gypsy because their family was no longer able to afford their care. Both have been pretty scared since arriving, which is understandable considering they have lived in a cozy home their whole lives. Ruffy is slowly starting to trust his newfound human friends, and allows for handling but isn't seeking out attention just yet. He was thrilled to be able to see Gypsy for a few moments though, and we would love for them to leave here the same way they arrived- together! If you can help out Ruffy please email Lifesaving.
