"If Light Is In Your Heart, You Will Find Your Way Home. - Rumi

If you are looking to add some light into your heart and home, look no further than this big, goofy sweetheart!

- Rumi is a fast learner knows multiple commands: Sit, Stay, Down, Come, Heel, Shake/Paw, Door

- He loves tennis balls, and taking short strolls with his humans

- Rumi has lived with kids in his previous home and would enjoy the company of older kids as he can be a bit clumsy at times

- He is an excellent co-pilot and would love to keep you company in the car while you run errands!

Rumi came to APA from another shelter after being in a home for several years and urgently needs a chill place to decompress and heal, as he needs to have surgery on both knees. Can you be his angel?




INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

This pup is currently located at our Town Lake Animal Center (1156 W. Cesar Chavez, but use 1200 Reserve Road for mapping purposes). We'd love to show them off to you! To learn more about them, head in any day between 12:00PM - 6:00PM. We are open 7 days a week! Go to Building B and ask to speak with a Matchmaker about fostering this pup. You will sit down and discuss all we know about them and, if it's a good fit, get to meet them then! Please budget for a wait time unless you arrive right at opening as we cannot dictate walk-in traffic (wait times tend to be highest in the evenings and on weekends). If this pup ends up not being the best fit, we have so many other pups in need that we can suggest for your household on the spot!

Come meet your new best friend
