Rudy is originally from Cyprus and was rescued as a stray. He was terrified from his ordeal and he's never truly overcome this difficult beginning. Rudy was adopted into the UK in April but his family have made the difficult decision to rehome him after they feel they just cannot give him the type of home he needs despite all their efforts. Rudy is a very timid dog who we believe will only make significant progress if he has at least one other dog in the household to copy off.He simply doesn't know how to be a companion and his psychological scars have clearly impacted him, so he needs a patient, calm and quiet home with other animals to help him overcome this.
Rudy currently lives in a home with two young children and whilst he is in no way hostile with them, he simply refuses to engage as the noise and movement is too overwhelming for him. For this reason we will not be looking for a home with children for Rudy as it's not aiding his progression.
Rudy enjoys playing outside, digging and likes to have a run around. He enjoys his own company but would be better with another canine friend. He definitely needs a home with a garden as in 3 months his previous home have been unable to walk him. He would be comfortable in a rural environment and it would be beneficial if the adopter had some experience of nervous rescue dogs. Given the right home and a lot of patience and gentle coaxing, Rudy really will flourish. He has demonstrated in his current home that he forms attachments to people so now it's just about finding the right home for him to blossom and understand that he is loved.
