I am about 7 years of age and weigh 58lbs. I was surrendered to the Ark because other Shelters would not touch me because of my age, and I had a tumor on my hind leg. When the Ark took me in they updated all my vaccines, spayed me and took of a pesky lump.
However, my time is short, I have cancer and it is an aggressive type. The Ark is not sure, but I may have a very short time left and it would be nice to have a home who can help keep me comfortable until my time comes.
Please come to the Ark and ask for Rukie, that's me!
Ark Rescue dogs are available for adoption to homes in the Alabama and Tennessee Valley area only. We do require a secure fenced-in yard to adopt our larger dogs.
