Official Site BiographyEdit

Peanut and Grape’s much older pet-cousin who lives on a farm.  He’s a little weird, and he might be into cats.

General InformationEdit

Rufus is a dog who lives on the farm owned by Uncle Reuben, Peanut and Grape's "uncle", thus making him their "pet-cousin". He actually belonged to the original owner of the farm, and was bought by Reuben when he bought the estate. Rufus was first shown taking a horse ride with Grape explaining the Farm's history to her, and where his old owner currently is. He was later asked by Peanut for girl advice when he wanted to confess his feelings to Grape. However Rufus thought that it was the neighbors' collie that Peanut was interested in, and simply gave him a chicken and told him to "look'er straight in the eye and tell her that you're madly in love, that you can't live without her", and give her the chicken as a sign of his love.

It was revealed in Temple Crashers 2: Temple Crashers, Part 2 that sometime afterwards he had died and went to Heaven. He was among the denizens sent to Babylon Gardens in the Temple Crashers 2 arc, and joined Peanut and Grape's party. Due to the earlier gag, Grape had a difficult time understanding that Rufus was actually dead, thinking he was again abusing euphemisms for death. Ambling along with the others, he's pretty much a silent observer. At the end of the arc, he joins all the different parties at the base of the Temple, trying to destroy the mana and prevent the Forgotten monster from breaking into the Temple. However, like his other Heavenly compatriots, Rufus proves pretty much helpless trying to assist Tarot draining the mana and the hulk-sized Res battling the Forgotten. Finally, when Keene "wakes up" and those trapped in the Temple transport back to the ferret mansion, Rufus is rescued along with Breel, Spring, Summer, and the others left behind in the collapsing ruins.

Before returning to Heaven, Rufus gives Maxwell a farewell kiss in front of the others, much to Max's discomfort , although he doesn't protest. Being completely unaware of any previous association between the two, Grape and the other witnesses find this unexpected display of affection intriguing and mysterious. Rufus, of course, departs silent.
