Pit Bull Stranded On Burning Hot Roof For Hours, Nobody Knows Who He Belongs To

The staff at Arizona Humane Society was baffled to receive a call about a “Pit Bull stranded on a rooftop”. 

Emergency Animal Medical Technicians Andy and Jenna responded to the call and drove to the reported neighborhood.

However, the rescue turned out to be quite a jovial affair thanks to the absolutely adorable antics of the “distressed” Pit Bull!

The enthusiastic Pit Bull started barking and hopping about happily the moment he spotted the rescuers approaching. But when Andy climbed up the roof to grab him, the dog simply lost his mind.

He was so thrilled to see Andy that he tried to roll over right there on that steep roof to get some satisfying belly rubs! What a goofball!

Andy and Jenna eventually managed to get the Pit Bull safely to the ground. As expected, the pooch celebrated his rescue by drowning the officers in cuddles and kisses.

The officers were sure this goofy ray of sunshine belonged to someone nearby. But after asking around the local residents, they discovered that this 9-month-old was a lonely stray. No wonder he was so excited to see friendly humans!

This cute Pittie baby was named Rufio and brought under the shelter’s care. Thankfully, he didn’t have to wait long for a forever home.

With his wiggly tail and snuggly presence, Rufio charmed his way into the heart of his new mom, Lindsey Clark.

Although how he ended up on that roof is still a mystery, Rufio’s little misadventure definitely led him to a happily ever after!

10 of the Smartest Dogs in the World:


A friend of mine has a beautiful Dalmatian. Friendly, energetic and lovable, she was a perfect family pet… but she wasn’t the smartest pooch on the planet. See, she knew how to go through the pet door out into the garden, but she had no clue how to get back inside. It never occurred to her that the flap could swing both ways. So she would sit outside and howl until my friend would open the door.

Repeated demonstrations of the dual movement of the flap had no effect; it just did not compute. The dog breeds on this list, however, probably don’t have that problem. They’re widely considered to be among the cleverest canines in the world. Take a look and see if you agree.

1. German Shepherd

No surprise here. German Shepherds are the world’s best police dogs, military dogs, and some have even been movie stars (remember Rin Tin Tin?). Brave, loyal, smart and strong, they’re the total package.

2. Beagle

Also on the list of the best family-friendly dogs in the world, the Beagle has an incredible nose that lets them sniff out just about anything. Born detectives, they’re not the most trainable pets, but they are smart. And hey, nobody ever accused Snoopy of being dumb.

3. Golden Retriever

A popular choice for assistance dogs for their easy temperament, natural intelligence and loyalty, Golden Retrievers are natural guides and also serve as great rescue dogs. Active and fun to be around, they’re wonderful family pets.

4. Border Collie

Border Collies are considered by many to be the geniuses of the dog world. Expert herders, laser-focused (they’re known for their intense stare), and incredibly agile to boot, they’re workaholics and excellent athletes. Just don’t expect to keep one cooped up in an apartment.

5. Poodle


Did you know poodles were originally hunting dogs? They respond very well to training and are quick to learn tricks. So don’t let the fluffy looks and styled mane fool you! These dogs are among the smart canines around. Plus, they’re among the best dogs in the world for those who suffer allergies.

6. Belgian Malinois


A terrific military dog, the Malinois is a natural herder, tracker and worker. Smart, trainable and protective, these dogs require an owner who knows what he or she is doing. In addition to the military, Malinois are often recruited as guard dogs and police dogs as well.

7. Papillon

Named for their butterfly-shaped ears, papillons are small, cute and pretty smart. They’re considered the smartest of the toy dog breed, with intelligence levels comparable to the über-smart border collie. They’re alert and focused pets, and loyal and lovable: an ideal friend for he family.

8. Doberman


Sadly, Dobermans are known more for their ferocity than their smarts, but these are considered among the most intelligent dogs in the world, as well as one of the most effective guard dogs around. They’re outstanding students known to be affectionate and obedient.

9. Bloodhound

Don’t let the wrinkles and dopey expression fool you! Bloodhounds have the keenest of noses, and are often used for trailing (so much so that their evidence can be used in court against you!). These are loving but strong-willed dogs, and are often used on search and rescue missions.

10. Australian Cattle Dog

You need a smart, determined and energetic dog to control unruly cows. And that’s just what the Australian Cattle Dog, or ACD, does. They’re intelligent enough to herd these much larger creatures, and while they need their independence and wide open spaces, they’re eager workers who know how to get the job done.
