Rudy - Pending Adoption

4 months old, 15 pound Australian Shepherd, Corgi mix

Rudy has made remarkable progress since he was rescued with 8 other dogs from a mechanic’s shop in Tennessee. He suffered from neglect and had extreme hair loss due to mange. Although he had trouble trusting humans when he first came to Bark Place in Tennessee, he has made much progress since then. Rudy walks on leash and will slowly warm up to you once he decides that you are “one of the good ones”. He becomes more beautiful and trusting each day but needs a patient, compassionate family who is willing to go slowly with him as he blossoms into a happy and healthy dog

With puppies, we are looking for people who are not out of the house for more than 3 hours at a time and not gone for more than 5 hours a day. We find that families with older children are ideal as they best understand the needs of a puppy.

 If you are interested in meeting Rigby, Rudy or another dog at Shultz’s, please click “How to Adopt” above for more information about the “Meet and Greet” and adoption process. We will need an application on file before an appointment is able to be set.  Our “Meet and Greets” are by appointment, at a time that will work for you and us. Thank you!
