Rufus the Labrador, Golden Retriever Mix

My name is Anthony and Rufus is my service dog. We got him from Canine Companions for Independence. He is a Labrador Retriever, Golden Retriever mix. He loves to pick things up for me like a T.V. remote, and he can turn lights on with his mouth or off with his paw. He can open the refrigerator with a rope on the handle. He loves to play fetch with a ball or frisbee and sleeps in my room every night on his dog bed or his opened kennel. Submitted by Anthony B.
