Learning to Live and Love Again.

Rudy is a senior dog (believed to be the results of a previous puppy mill) that's trying to learn how to act in a loving world. When I met Rudy, I had to get him from the back corner of the crate. I took him home and he ran to a corner when I put him down. He wouldn't go outside, so I carried him and as soon as he got down, he ran to the corner of the fence. This little guy was scared of people, other dogs, everything! I had to go get him out of the corner and carry him back inside too. He wouldn't go through the doorway on his own even though other dogs were. When he started to venture out of his corner, he would run back when he heard any noise. He is now able to run around the yard and play with the other dogs. I put his doggie bed under an end table beside my chair and he took to that immediately. That is still “his place,” though he ventures out to interact with the others much more now. When he first started going through the door, I quickly learned I had to 'hide' behind the door facing and give him room to come through until he was confident enough to come with the others while I held the door open. Other dogs have come and gone and Rudy is still here. He has come a long way to where he will now come and go outdoors on his own. He is unsure of his footing on hardwood and laminate flooring, so he sometimes walks backward to get away from it. He's still not fully potty trained, but we're working on that and he doesn't walk on a leash yet, but we'll get there too. I am reaching out because Rudy desperately needs dental care--his teeth are blackening from the gums about halfway to the tips. No wonder he doesn’t like hard things like Dentastyx, Bonz, or Greenies, etc. I believe it's because it causes him pain to eat them. Any amount you could share for this little boy would be a blessing. I am his foster mom trying to raise money for special needs. I will definitely miss this little guy when he gets adopted; but he deserves his own person and that person will be getting a very sweet and gentle friend.
