Hi! My name is Rudy and life has not been easy. For 13 years, I was chained up outside 24/7 which wasn’t fun, but I can say that it has made me a survivor. When I first got to hang out inside, I was a bit confused by the wood floors and paced around a lot, but now I am really learning to love curling up on soft things like dog beds and couches. I love my crate at night and am super thankful for a warm, soft place to spend my nights.
I ignore cats and really just crave “me-time” with my foster parents, so would prefer a household with siblings who are ok with that and don’t pester me too much.  There’s a little human here who is just the best, I love curling up on the couch and watching movies with her.
I am definitely looking for a family who will give me lots of love and attention since I have lacked that most of my life. I will stick right by your side wherever you go and will hope that we end up snuggling on the couch. My favorite place will probably be in your lap, and, yes, I am small enough to be a lap dog! I won’t bark or jump all over you like some of these young chumps. Lots of pets and cuddling will keep me completely satisfied and I will curl up in my crate like a champ when I’m sleepy. Meeting the right family to call mine will make all of those years on the chain worthwhile.
Rudy is a 13yo Border Collie boy looking for a home to retire in. He has had some medical issues cleared up while in foster and does take daily medications. He is neutered, UTD on vaccines, and microchipped. He is currently fostered in Pittsboro, NC and his adoption fee is $150.
