Meet Trudie!

She and 2 other dogs were relinquished at a local SD shelter. The 3 were under socialized, but sweet. She is a little nervous and not very confident, YET. But, in the right environment, she opens up quickly! She does well with dogs and so far, cats as well. Once she trusts someone, she seeks attention and love from them. She does well in the car and on leash, and is crate trained.

Trudie is a very smart dog and well behaved, but still needs guidance from humans especially regarding trust issues. She seems to trust women more than she does men, although she does well with men she knows. Realistically, there are certain people who she doesn't trust and takes longer to warm up to. Because of this, the ideal home is a family with no young children, although teens would be fine, and adults who are dog experienced and can understand when a dog is intimidated and doesn't want to be approached. This will help in the future when Trudie is out in settings surrounded by strangers, but also for her first couple of weeks in a new home and while getting to know each other. She LOVES her people, she loves belly rubs, she loves to gently paw at you with her adorable paws, and is a very gentle girl with small tiny licks on your arm showing how much she enjoys time with you on the sofa or even going on car rides. 

If you have a large family, roomates, or a hectic home, it will take a while for Trudie to get used to it, but she will with the right help of someone assuring her she is ok and making sure people around her know to give her spcae. For some reasons people always want to touch Trudie even when she is not ready to allow that approach and, hence, the dog savvy adopter is preferred.

She is great in her crate and can rest comfortably and quietly, but she also is a great hiking or running partner and  dog park girl. She would do well in outtings like dog cafes ONLY if her adopter is vigilant and understands she is not an 'in your face dog'. When she meets people, she is NOT automatically going to be happy and interested in new people and people should not expect to just approach her with sudden movements if she is exhibiting being uncomfortable around them. You need to read her body language to know if she is ok with that stranger or not.

About Animal Rescuers Without Borders, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

The A.R.W.O.B. group is based in San Diego, CA and operates mostly in Mexico as well as Southern California and will come to the aid of any animal in need which crosses our path. Our belief is to do what we can in order to “Make a difference in their lives.” From experience we have observed and feel the companion animals of Mexico are in the greatest need and accordingly we focus much of our efforts in Baja, Mexico. However, we certainly extend our help to our north of the border critters by accepting relinquished family pets, exiting both dogs and cats from the shelters of San Diego and of course by working in conjunction with other animal rescue groups in the community
