RUFF (Rescues United For Fun) Meetup

Calling San Francisco's small rescue dogs for a new meetup on the first Saturday of each month at 11:30 am in Pine Lake Dog Park in Stern Grove.

If you have a small rescue dog and want to meet other rescues and their parents, please join us for off-leash play and schmoozing.

Don't worry if your dog is quirky; ours are, too!

RUFF co-organizer Shannon Bolt of The Domestic Animal has worked with shelter and rescue dogs for years. She specializes in special-needs animals and will be on hand for advice and assistance.

All rescue dogs who weigh less than 30 pounds — the mutt-ier, the better; but we won't discriminate against purebreds — and their adult people (this is not the place for children; many small dogs, especially those with issues, are afraid of kids) are welcome.

We'll have a RUFF sign, so look for us in the field west of the parking lot.

    Lovely group! I wish you would move closer to the chihuahua meetup so we could socialize with both groups at once.

      Ms B, my apologies! It repeatedly comes up that our favorite part of the meetup is walking around the park, and even little doggies need lots of exercise. Ezra and company tend to stand around unless we are moving, too. With the exception of Sweet Pea who really shook our stationary group up. I meant no slam to anyone's size or inclinations, and I am terribly embarrassed and sorry that it came across that way.

      Oh! I'm sorry. I thought you meant it as a general comment on how chubby Americans and our pets are! Don't be embarrassed! It's my mistake.

    I forgot to ask about the best way to teach Abby the "stay" command. I've got to remember next time! :)
