I have had many dogs in my lifetime. I have to say that Rufus is the best. He is affectionate, protective and intelligent. He adores my granddaughter.

He is also the most destructive dog that I have ever had. He gets into everything. I think that goes along with the intelligence. I will try to upload some pictures.

Yup - that sounds like Wrigley. Lately his favorite has been to get a brand new roll of paper towels and tear it to shreds all over my kitchen.

ahhhhhhhhhh gotta love that age. Casey was one on the 6th of March and is a monster to. He is crated if not around him. He chewed my baseboard in his room last month but after a reminder of why we don't do that he hasn't touched it since.
Lots of bones around I try ot buy new ones ever couple weeks to switch them up a bit.
Mandy was never destructive.
Paper towel is a delicasy to Casey he can sniff one out of anywhere.
Mandy's favourite treat is to grab the dryer sheet. As soon as I open dryer she is routing through the clothes BUGGER

How did you remind him not to chew the baseboard? Teddy was like that when we got him - I just realized that he is not chewing any more - I don't know if he grew out of it or I got through to him lol He is 3

Yelled hollered screamed at top of my longs when cought him doing it LOL I scared the crap out of him and then took him by the collar to his crate.
It is brand new last year molding that the one pc is totally destroyed. Thankfully only the one pc. I heard a noice and thought it was him chewing his bone against the wall. When I come down to check i must have looked like a crazy woman.

Whatever it worked.

BEAUTIFUL boy!! I wish I had some advice to offer on the chewing bit but neither of my poodles did it much. Actually, Carly never chewed anything she wasn't supposed to have. Billy did start with toilet paper. I scolded him whenever I caught him with it and I suppose because he is very sensitive, he responded quickly and stopped. Didn't much enjoy having my home toilet papered by my own dog! :smile:

Red Rufus - destructive? Red Rufuses have an initial D for destructive as the middle name.

Three leashes and two sofa pillows, and sheet music from my sons piano class..... :lol:

But he's also "affectionate, protective and intelligent."
