ADOPTED 06-19-10 – OH MY WORD! LOOK AT THAT ABSOLUTELY HANDSOME FACE OF THIS GORGEOUS GERMAN SHEPHERD named RUDY, a dog that exudes such noble regality, a quality so unmistakable to this much admired and very popular breed. This approx. 14 month old young dog is fully house-trained, altered and healthy and blessed with the most pleasant of dispositions. His cleanly chiseled and distinctly masculine face accord him breathtaking poised beauty with his composed expression, almond eyes and magically erect ears pointing guard as a German Shepherd’s should!
RUDY has now finished his heartworm treatment very successfully and is one happy and playful “marshmallow of a puppy” filled with love, an eagerness to be with his people and a love of all things, including cats, other dogs, children and the water! RUDY JUST LOVES TO SWIM! Currently he’s being fostered in a loving Southern home with other dogs (and cats) in a terrific environment of love and attention, so he’s well-socialized, cheerful and very much cared for on every front, especially because the human mom of the benevolent household is a seasoned veterinarian and her children are equally compassionate and nurturing, so RUDY is being coddled in a cozy nest of love, that’s for sure!
This 70 pound, gentle and goofy black and tan beauty was rescued from a HIGH KILL SHELTER in Georgia and brought to this family’s loving environment along with several other dogs and puppies taken to safety that day and off of Death’s Row. So terribly sad that a Heartworm diagnosis is often the reason these shelters euthanize these very deserving dogs, but we’re grateful for tender-hearted rescuers who know that the disease, if treated ensures the animal a long life of happiness and hope, and that’s what we have in mind for RUDY BABY, and nothing less because THIS DOG DESERVES EVERYTHING, and then some!
RUDY is an energetic and fun-loving dog, so fond of children and other household pets. Though, beware, his foster family reports he has one penchant stronger than anything else, and that’s his love of orange juice — yup, you read it here. RUDY will venture to his favorite teenager’s room and carefully select the aluminum pouches of orange juice straight out of the case (teenagers don’t like to have to walk far to get their drinks these days, BIG WINK) and decide to consume the beverage as well. Frankly, it’s pretty adorable, but of course they are mindful that it’s not healthy for him to do such things. He doesn’t bother anything else, we just think he loves citrus! SHEPHERDS ARE SMART AFTER ALL, AND HE CLEARLY CRAVES VITAMIN C! Rudy’s got that self-confidence and alert personality so typical of a German Shepherd, but he’s an easy going and very well-balanced and happy BIG PUPPY!
Rudy’s majestic body is longer than it is tall, with a terrifically deep-bodied chest and well muscled frame that will require typical grooming. Regularly exercised and stimulated both mentally and physically, like all German Shepherd’s require, he will make the right family a loyal and loving companion. RUDY is alert and full of life with his bushy tail wagging it’s way straight into anybody’s heart. His devoted foster family doesn’t simply call him RUDY, they have to add RUDY BABY after his name because they are all so endeared to him, and understandably so. German Shepherds as sweet as him don’t come along too often.
The ideal home for RUDY is one where he can receive a lot of consistent exercise, but he will need time as well and German Shepherd’s do NOT DO WELL IN ISOLATION. Research this breed well to be sure it is a commitment you can manage and EXCEL in before you even consider applying for RUDY. Rudy deserves a family that understands his breed’s needs and can provide that for him. Successful re-homing of these dogs happens when we honor the needs of the dog as much as of the family.
To watch this gorgeous dog prance around is such a graceful pleasure. Rudy’s effortless fait is smooth and rhythmic and he just looks so distinguished and regal, that is until he yawns and looks at you with that playful puppy smile of his and he makes you think he’s more of a person than a dog. Completely loyal and with such a distinctively special personality, Rudy’s steadfast heart wins one over instantly. He has a rugged body combined with a noble presence that is blessed with an agile performance. Rudy is versatile and dignified, loving and playful, cheerfully affectionate as any puppy in 75 pounds of body should be expected!

He’s come a long way from that scared guy that was rescued from the high kill shelter who spent his whole car ride from Georgia to Alabama curled up in a ball in the backseat of the car! This 70 pound beauty is everything a German Shepherd should be, and then some!
