Rudy is a young puppy suffering from a lifetime of neglect. Though he is only around 7 or 8 months old, he has already had a tough life. Facing starvation at this young age makes it hard for Rudy to grow and physically develop as a puppy should. He has so many intestinal parasites, which also contribute to his emaciated state, as well as lots and lots of fleas and ticks. Rudy's skin is red and irritated from fleas and ticks, but also from mange. This has created a cycle of itching and scratching that keep his skin from healing and causes infected sores on his skin.
Despite the suffering he has experienced and the discomfort he is in, Rudy is a happy-go-lucky pup. He is so thankful for any attention and really wants to play. Once his healing is underway, he will feel a lot better and be able to play as a puppy should!
