My Ideal Home: Hi! My name is Rudy and I am looking for a great home to call my own.
As mentioned above I have MegaEsophagus. I have had it since I was a baby and it means I need to eat standing up. Don’t worry though, I come with my own chair and know how to use it. My foster mom was nervous about it when I first arrived but she will tell you that it is surprisingly easy to manage and snuggling with me after I eat is very relaxing.
Other than my funny eating habits, I am a really energetic boy who LOVES a Kong or Benebone. When I am not running around, you can find me snoozing on the couch, on my dog bed or wherever you are.
I am potty trained and learning my manners. I am still working on my leash skills so having a fence will make life easier as I get better.
I don’t do well with other dogs. I am all about my humans and don’t want to share them. It is important that I am the only pup for you.
I have mild anxiety at night time. I take anxiety meds to help me sleep at night. These are optional
