Comments: Rudy had a rough start, but he’s enjoying today and looking forward to forever with his own family. Rudy came from a hoarding situation. You’ve probably seen them on tv- people with way too many animals and too little time and resources to care for them properly. There were many types of dogs in the home, so we really have no clue what his breed background is. Perhaps a little Mini Schnauzer, a little Chihuahua, a little terrier- whatever he is, he's precious! Most dogs in hoarder homes aren’t physically abused, but they are neglected, receiving little to no individual attention, affection, or touch. This is what life was like for Rudy. As a result, Rudy is wonderful with other small dogs, but it takes him a few minutes to trust that you aren’t going to hurt him before he’s ready to approach a new person. If one of his dog buddies thinks you’re ok, he comes around much faster, so we want to make sure that he has another smallish, friendly dog in his forever home to be his good example. You would think that Rudy would hate physical attention, but it’s just the opposite. This precious boy with the rockin’ hairdo is so very sweet. When our photographer came to take these pictures, she sat down on the floor with the dogs and Rudy barked and ran around. Then he saw his buddy, Pip, was getting an awful lot of attention from that scary lady, and she seemed less scary. After a few minutes, Rudy was gently asking her for attention, sitting next to her, and even asking for a belly rub before falling asleep. If he’s given that initial time to decide to trust you, he’s such a loving, loyal companion. Rudy deserves to spend the rest of his life getting the attention he missed out on during that first phase of his life. If you’d like to be the lucky person to give him that attention, please fill out an application at http://www.littledogsbigheartsrescue.com/adoption-application/ today!

About Little Dogs Big Hearts Rescue- DFW Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Little Dogs Big Hearts Rescue was formed in response to the overwhelming number of adoptable dogs being euthanized in our area. We began by networking with other rescues and transporting dogs from shelters throughout the North Texas / southern Oklahoma area to responsible rescue groups so they could be adopted out. Having a soft spot for the tiny breeds, we began fostering and searching for perfect forever homes for the dogs in our care. We do not operate a kennel or shelter- all of the LDBHR dogs are kept in foster homes until suitable forever families are found. All donations are used to make a dent in the medical care of the dogs- none of our volunteers receive any monetary profit (though the emotional profit from helping these wonderful animals makes us feel very wealthy, indeed!). If you have any questions about our group, please feel free to ask at info@littledogsbigheartsrescue.com.
