Rudy —a/k/a “Rudy Patoodee” — is a happy guy with a big smile, radar ears, a love of laps, and a “big dog in a little suit” personality. Phew!   

We should mention that Rudy’s beautiful black coat has white accents around his mouth and muzzle, making him look like he just went face down into a bowl of vanilla ice cream (he wishes).  So keep in mind his white fur isn’t a sign of age, just his coloring.

Speaking of which, did you know that a small dog can live double a larger sized dog’s lifespan?  One of our volunteers has a 15 year old Chihuahua who does zany laps around her home and jumps almost as high as her kitchen counter. So think of Rudy as finally getting his puppy silliness behind him and ready to take on a new life…with you?
