Rudy is a 7 year old German Shepherd mix, who is a bit smaller and a bit less furry than the average shepherd, but still weighs in at a healthy 72lbs. He is a sensitive and loving boy who takes his Shepherd duties very seriously, and if you are stressed/nervous, he will be stressed. We recently tested Rudy with cats and chickens, and after an initial sniff, ignored both. In fact he pretty much looked at us and said, “mommy, please stop sticking that chicken in my face, you don't know where it's been”! So, if you have livestock, Rudy might be a great farm companion!He is house trained and old enough to not want to chew anything other than a good marrow bone! He is an Olympic-level snuggler who likes nothing better than an easy stroll with you and then some couch time. Looking for a mellow buddy and love German Shepherds? Rudy is your guy! Contact us today to meet him.

Our Adoption Process...
Our adoption fee is $250 for young-senior dogs. Puppy adoption fee is $350. We require a short adoption application, home visit and reference checks. We are very hands-on and may require new dog owners to attend obedience lessons (easy, and fun -- and as we pay for them, free).
