Help a furkid in need

Hello, my name is Rufus!

Rufus 2

More about me

Male (Medium). Wolfhound. Young-adult - DOB: unknown .

Shelter: (Western-Cape)

He was dumped at UWC yesterday. 
Since all the animal welfare societies and shelters are completely full this time of year, I took him home for the night. But our cats and dogs are not happy at all and everyone is very stressed and no one got any sleep last night. He is being neutered tomorrow but have to find him a home (foster or permanent) as soon as possible.
We have called him Rufus. He is a rather large dog German shepherd cross Wolfhound. He is very young, playful and super friendly. Shows no aggression whatsoever to other dogs, cats or kids. He is in excellent condition and his wiry coat is soft and spotlessly clean and there is not a tick or flea on him, so there is a chance he has been stolen. Will advertise him and contact SPCA and other welfares just in case.
Rufus would best suit people with active lifestyles and another dog for company – he does not like to be alone. He has been searching for his people ever since I fetched him yesterday afternoon and wont let me out of his sight. Once he realizes he is not going to be dumped he will easily settle down.
