Rudy is ready to find his forever family. He is a 5-6 year old lab mix, maybe mixed with some collie or shepherd in there. Rudy is a master ball player and would love to find a family with a big yard where he could play ball when he's not curled up in a warm spot. Check out this video of Rudy playing frisbee:
Rudy needs a home as an only dog with a human who just likes being with him and playing. He can be exuberant in his greetings and he may knock over little ones with his excitement. Older respectful kids would make the most sense for him. He benefits from a good deal of exercise and good leadership.
Rudy makes everyone smile with his antics and his love of his big orange ball. If the grass is wet first thing in the morning he will roll in it and he is so happy when it snows. He also will gather socks and come running to show his human what he has found - luckily he doesn't eat them. He wants you to chase him for the sock but if you refuse he will just roll over and invite you to take it from him.
Rudy is treat motivated and learns best when the human has a supply of goodies.
Rudy would be the most relaxed if he could find a forever home in the country where he could run in a fenced area or off-leash area (once he understands he is "home") without constantly meeting other dogs on leash. This is the hardest thing for him because he is too reactive to new dogs when he is on leash. He is a sweet lovebug, a 60 lb lap dog (at least he thinks so!) who adores his humans. His new family will need to be ready to get lots of kisses.
Interested in adopting? Check out our application at www.luckypuprescue.org.
Please note: We do not have a physical location, but we are supported by a network of wonderful foster homes that are spread throughout New England. A dog will need to be visited by a prospective adopter in the foster home where they are feeling safe and comfortable.
Thank you for considering rescue!
Rudy is being fostered in Cumberland County, Maine while he waits for his forever family to find him!
