Rudder is a distinguished senior dog with a heart as big as his wagging tail. His graying fur and soulful eyes tell the story of a life filled with experiences, and now he's ready to share his golden years with a family who understands the beauty of age.

He is looking for a loving adult only home where he can bask in the love and attention he deserves. A patient and understanding family who can appreciate the elegance of a senior dog's companionship is just what Rudder needs. He's the wisest man around - he knows sit, stay, down, paw, up, come. He can also be left alone for 8 hours while you work! He'll be patiently waiting for your return ready to listen about your day.

Are you ready to make a difference in Rudder's life? If you're looking for a loyal companion who will fill your home with love and warmth, come meet Rudder today. He's not just a senior dog; he's a treasure waiting to bring joy to his forever family.
Come meet your new best friend
