Rudy's story...

Hi everyone. I’m Rudy. I am a sweet, gentle 5 yr old chihuahu/minpin cross who has had a very tough life until now. Before ending up in a high kill California shelter it is obvious I was not treated kindly by people. I am a dog who is surprised by gentleness from humans. When I am approachedby people I don’t know, I seem to expect I will be hit or kicked. But once you pick me up or touch me gently I relax and soak up the love. It took me just a few hours to trust that my foster mom was not going to hurt me. Now that I know I am safe with her, I love to sit beside her or on her lap and love being touched. My foster mom says I want more than anything to be loved and to love. But I am scared of people I don’t know. I assume strangers are going to hurt me so I keep them at a distance by barking. It may take me awhile to become comfortable with strangers approaching me so I will need a patient, understanding home. Although I am not the least bit aggressive, my timid nature makes me unsuited for a home with children. I am great on a leash and love going for walks.  I am fearful of cars and try to run away from them so walking along a busy street is uncomfortable for me. But I LOVE walking in parks and the woods and quiet areas. I am okay left alone in the house and am not destructive.  I am fine with other dogs and cats but I don’t have any interest in playing with them. My ideal home would be with one or two adults who love going for walks with me and will help me learn to trust unfamiliar people. My aoption fee is $350.
