Rudy is a Chi or Chi mix, estimated to be between 1-3 years old. He was a stray caught after at least one month of ... running on his own between mid November and mid December. HUGE Thanks to ALL the ladies who worked tirelessly to trap him, networked to find owner and foster him. They could not believe how he survived the weather, hawks, coyotes, and car and school bus traffic in Westmoreland County PA, but he did. His rescuers all agreed he looked like a tiny fawn, and being a Christmas miracle, they named him Rudy (for Rudolph).
When caught, Rudy was skin and bones with every kind of parasite both internal and external. He could barely stand and the vet thought he could not have survived out there more than another day. He was barely 6 pounds. After 2 weeks of TLC, Rudy weighed in at 9 pounds with all ticks, fleas, and worms gone!
Rudy's personality has blossomed. He needs only about 10-15 minutes to warm up to new people. He likes both men and women. He is doing very well with his foster's dog and cat. He likes to chase the cat but in a playful, not mean, way. He has not been adequately kid-tested but does not like to be startled or poked so a home without small children would be best. While he can be playful and even dance for you, he is most content to snuggle up on a lap or next to you on the couch. He loves to be held. He is sweet, funny and very loveable!
While he can have a bit of the Chi attitude, he is not yappy and only barks when someone comes to the door or he hears noises outside. Rudy is crate trained, pee pad trained, but still likes to go outside (when recent weather permits) for potty breaks. He walks very well on a leash. Rudy is a wonderful boy who has been through a lot a deserves a wonderful home of his own!

About One Dog At A Time (ODAAT)

About Our Rescue Group...

Our Mission at One Dog at a Time, or ODAAT, is to become a not for profit organization dedicated to legally assist animals in need by working in tandem and cooperatively with Dog Wardens, Humane Officers, Local Police, and the State Police; building relationships and solutions with all. ODAAT realizes the problems of neglected and abused animals in Pennsylvania do not have immediate solutions and until state cruelty laws are amended or changed, this group of volunteers will work within the constraints of the Pennsylvania legal system. ODAAT is working with individuals and agencies that are able to enforce Pennsylvania Humane Laws and will assist where and when possible – with resources and training so desperately needed.

Our Adoption Process...

The goal of ODAAT is to place our companion animals in lifetime, loving homes. Every home and every companion animal has it 's own unique personality and requirements. We place our animals in the supportive and loving environment of home foster care. While there, we gain knowledge about their personality, training skills, likes and dislikes.

To assist us with matching the correct companion animal with the most appropriate and compatible home,please fill out our adoption application questions as completely and correctly as possible and any other information you think would be helpful. The application will be followed-up by an ODAAT Adoption Coordinator, with a phone interview and then a home check.

Adoption contract and post adoption follow-up checks are required as a condition of adoption. Some companion animals get multiple applicants or are not appropriate matches, so not all adoptions will be approved. Not all applicants will receive a yes or no response due to limited staff. We reserve the right to refuse any adoption without justification.
Our Adoption Costs vary but below is a guidline:
Dogs: $150-$350
Cats: $50
Kittens: $75

Why the high cost? Can't I adopt an animal for less? No.. and here's why: Our animals come to you fully vetted. It costs us less for medical care then you due to non-profit discount. So if you adopt an animal for less it will cost you more later. Spay & Neutering your animals, along with keeping up on shots prevents disease & illnesses.
