Rudy has one of those stories that just breaks your heart and makes you furious at the same time. He had to have been loved at one time but somewhere along the way he was discarded like trash. Around Thanksgiving 2016 he was found starving and in need of emergency medical care. This Boston Terrier boy had a ruptured hernia and abscessed teeth were left to rot in his mouth and had abscess went through the roof of his mouth. He was not neutered and he was 6 years old. He was rescued and taken in by a generous and loving woman who did multiple surgeries to fix the necessary things and make him more comfortable. He has an abnormal tail due to the hernia that was fixed. He also has feathering around his ears from the frostbite he experienced at some point and will need a gentle moist shampoo from time to time. Rudy is so well housetrained that we think he would pop before letting an accident happen. He loves toys and he craves human compassion more than he wants food. The human who chooses Rudy will be loved completely. He travels very well, loves to go on walks, is happy to meet new people and explore. Rudy is as happy to lounge on the couch and snuggle as he is to walk and explore. He is eager to please and loves to learn. He will easily acclimate to your home. Rudy will do best in a calm home. He becomes stressed of loud voices or rambunctious behavior. He can be acclimated to other dogs. He is mostly submissive however he is selfish about toys. He doesn't start fights but when it comes to toys he will try to take them all. Rudy is learning to play with another dog or a human. He appears to have never done that before. With his foster family he has been around several other dogs and has handled it well as long as the other dogs are tolerant of him taking their toys or the toys are closely managed. He has been around children ages 2-10. He is more comfortable around the older children. Every day Rudy is learning 'to be in the family'. He is eager to find his forever home with his forever people to love. PLEASE NOTE: Our dogs are transported from Tennessee to meeting places in the states where we have posted.
