Season 6

"The End Is the Beginning"

While Emile is preparing dinner, Walter, who is being chased by Rufus, comes to him asking for help from the people tracking him. Rufus soon catches up, and is described by Walter to have been following him for days. Rufus is greeted and pet by Emile, though before Walter is able to understand the situation, Emile tells him that Rufus is his dog and kills Walter. Rufus briefly licks Walter's severed head.

When Emile accepts the bounty after Morgan Jones, Rufus is used again to track down Morgan's scent, eventually leading Emile to Morgan and Isaac's place of hiding in a town. Rufus urges to go inside, though when let in finds no trace of Morgan.

Rufus eventually tracks Morgan down again to a water tower, yet Emile fails to kill Morgan.

When Emile and Morgan have their final encounter, Emile is left dead, with Rufus seemingly staying in the valley with Rachel and Morgan.

"The Key"

Rufus is seen waiting in the truck after Morgan picks up supplies left by Daniel. Morgan unsurely shows Rufus a jacket belonging to Grace in an attempt to see if he can pick up a trail.

While driving back to Humbug's Gulch to see if Rufus can pick up a scent in the last place Grace was seen, the car is struck by another. Morgan checks on Rufus, who is seemingly okay.
