This is the story of Rufo, a dog who, though loving and sweet, just could not get adopted.

At the age of one, he was turned over to a New York shelter. He would not go home until six long, painful years had passed. Rufo’s struggle to find a new home is a testament to the power of using social media for the sake of animals. Have you shared an adoptable dog with friends lately?
