Rudy is among the millions of pups that find themselves in shelters each year. However, this mistreated puppy experienced a great deal of incomprehensible shock – so much that he couldn’t be adopted out to the general public. Extreme beatings, a damaged hip, eye and ear infections, mange… Rudy was in a pitiful condition, and with no likely future ahead of him, he was booked to be put down.
Incredibly, the pup was saved from death row with just a few hours left by a local rescue group known as Houston Street Dogs. Seeing his tail wag when he eats his first really good meal and receives a little love is enough to get any dog lover crying. However, Rudy’s long quest returning back to good health and peace wasn’t done yet. For several months, he went through extensive treatment solutions, injections, and prescriptions to heal him of his many health conditions.
With proper love and care, Rudy changed into a lovable little pup sporting a healthy coat, a major smile on his face and a tail all set to wag. However, one major problem still remained.
Rudy needs a full hip replacement if he is ever to become a normal pupper again. His damaged hip causes him severe pain and prevents him from walking and running and even playing as he would normally.
Houston Street Dogs launched a YouCaring fundraising campaign to raise the money so Rudy could get the much needed operation… and the WONDERFUL news is that they have now exceeded their aim! We hope to see Rudy running and having fun with his new hip some time soon!
