Meet Roody

I thought it might be nice to introduce the residents here at Hundenruhe over the next few days! We'll start with the oldest, and work our way down to the youngest, shall we? The oldest dog is Roody, who is 17 years old. He is an Italian Greyhound, and came to us via the Fluffy Butts Rescue Resort in Iowa. My very patient mother and I drove to pick him up in August of this year, and he has been adjusting to life on the farm ever since. Roody's human mom decided to give him and his "sister" up when she had a life change. His rat terrier "sister", also 17, found a lovely home with a couple who will give her tons of love for the rest of her days. Roody had his last two teeth pulled and his manly bits removed shortly before he came to live with us. For awhile, his amorous ways were a big bother to our other Rudy, but he has settled down now to a more calm and contented existence. He must be handfed due to his very narrow muzzle and no teeth, but it is a nice chance for he and I to bond together twice a day, so I don't mind. Welcome to Hundenruhe, Roody!
