Meet Rudy

Meet Rudy, a sweet six year old Pointer/Border Collie mix (maybe) but in reality it’s a best guess. Rudy is a bigger boy weighing in at about sixty five pounds. He is fairly new to HART but we can already tell Rudy is a sweet guy. Shelters are reaching that time where they are overcrowded and in desperate need of rescues to help them out. This is no exception for Rudy as he came from one of our WV high intake partner shelters.

Rudy has met several dogs and has done well with them. He has met small dogs, large dogs, older dogs, and even tolerated a hyper four month old puppy who seemed to want to get to know him up close and personal. It has been reported by the shelter Rudy came from that he is good with children as well. Cats unfortunately are unknown.

Rudy is a bit nervous in the car but he eventually sat in the back on the floorboard. Traveling may not necessarily be this guy's thing right away. He walks pretty decently on a leash but could use some training. Rudy is not a fan of the crate but will go in with some prompting. He will initially bark but he does settle.

Rudy loves to hang out next to you on the couch. He is such a sweet and loving guy looking for approval and head scratches. Rudy is the perfect age and energy level for someone looking for a mix of some energy with some cuddle time. He enjoyed walking around the fenced yard but definitely wanted to come from the hot sun after doing his business. Rudy would make a great addition to any family!

Rudy is Lyme positive so he will need to finish up his Lyme boosters in his adoptive home which can be completed at the rescue's vet. Rudy will need a regular yearly booster of Lyme due to this diagnosis. Lyme is a tick borne disease that many dogs live with.
