Rudy was a wonderful people loving and dog loving dog. he loved everyone.I have never seen a dog with so much personality and spark. Children, adults , and other dogs loved him. He had a magnetism that I have never seen. Vote for Rudy!

You have my vote. Thank you, for giving Rudy a good home all his years. Homeless dogs have always been special to me and I have cared for many.

Sadly since this video was filmed Rudy has passed into the great og park in the sky. Unfortunately a lot was cut out of my introduction video for Rudy. Tragically, the scars of the cruelty Rudy endured as a puppy had seemingly healed.. until eight months ago when Rudy suffered a spinal cord stroke. He was predisposed to this by a vertebral narrowing in his ne k directly resulting from the embedded collar of his youth. Over the next few months Rudy recover much of his ability to walk, run, play and do other doggie things. This event left him extremely unsteady though. On Mother's Day Rudy took a tumble further injuring his spine even more. This. left him without the ability to move his back legs at all. Rudy was a fighter. Rudy was a survivor. However at nearly 12 years old this was too much for even him to recover from. I'm really hoping Rudposthumously wins top udog of the month not for the prizes butto have one final honor. Please vote for my sweet ray of sunshine. The world is a much dimmer place without him.
