This last cold week in January, our Hill Pet of the Week is Rufus, whose full name is Rufus McGoofus Sasparilla Wainright Norton. He’s a Catahoula hound with his own Facebook page. Here’s what his owners shared about him:
This is Rufus Norton, an 8-year-old Catahoula hound dog. He’s become a bit of a celebrity around the Hill for his chill demeanor. He loves fetching a ball precisely two times, then he gets bored and starts sniffing around instead. His daddies love him very much and hope he can be Hill Pet of the Week!
