Now living happily in Marion, AR.
Rudee, though just a puppy, arrived at HUA from a mill in Nebraska terrified and not puppy-ish at all. He was stiff as a board when we picked him up. Soothing words and gentle touches made him cringe. Gradually, he has learned that he is in a good, safe place with people who love him and he has decided that life must be OK after all. He loves to romp with the other pups and is having quite a nice time soaking up all the quiet praise he gets for his bravery. Rudee is another example of the damage puppy mills do the psyche of even the very young. We are so grateful to have gotten him out of that horrendous place before the damage could become permanent. Rudee has a chance now for a long, happy life and he will be forever grateful for his new home and his new family.
