Rudy was found as a stray who suddenly vanished while her rescuers were looking for her owners. They hoped she had gone home, until two weeks later she appeared starved, and nearly dead. They brought her to Rose Acres Rescue to keep her from being euthanized.
She is 8+ years old, was not spayed, not chipped, had poor dental, heart worm positive, severely malnourished, and had shoulder and hip injuries from being struck by a car.
Rudy really struggled the first week in our care and only gained two pounds despite her new nourishment and hydration. I had to help her to the food bowls and every time I went to check on her, I expected to have lost her.
We added to her diet and changed her feeding pattern. She soon gained a normal healthy weight for her size and was feeling very happy with constant tail wags. Her mobility greatly improved and was even going up and down a flight of steps. She truly is the best little dog, thanks to poundWISHES we were able to raise her full wish amount of $1,500 for her vet care. Rudy also received toys and a new comfy bed from her poundWISH Pet Registry which were kindly donating by our amazing supporters.
The Vet is giving her time to completely get over the Bronchitis. She acts like a puppy with hers toys, holds them in her mouth and won't share them. Once healed completely from Bronchitis and bloodwork/labs stable, we will do Heartworm Treatment. We have put her on the adoption pages. She is sweet and humble. Doing great in house!
