PokeyRudy's Puppies


Pokey was found in early Sept. 2008 as a stray near an Indian Reservation in Shelton, WA. She had no collar or tags, she was infested with fleas, she was healthy but underweight, and she was in the early stages of pregnancy. She was thought to be somewhere between 9-12 months old. She was taken to the no-kill Adopt-a-Pet shelter, where she was spayed and placed up for adoption as soon as she was back on her paws. She was immediately recognized by the shelter staff as an "exceptional" pup. She got along well with all the other dogs, and she LOVED people, especially children. Before we left with her, one of the volunteers said, "you won't be disappointed by this dog." That was an understatement! She's the cuddliest, most attentive, most nimble & athletic, and most friendly pup we know.

Rudy came from a no-kill shelter outside of Seattle, where he'd been dropped off by a family who'd originally taken him at a "free puppies" giveaway. After he started to grow and become more active, they couldn't handle the responsibility of a puppy. Their bad decision was our good fortune, as Rudy is an awesome little guy who's brought much happiness to our little family. He and his big sister Pokey (from the same shelter) have become inseparable, and they can usually be found wrestling or cuddling with each other. The term "good-natured" has been used by many to describe Rudy, and it's fitting. He's quite mellow (except when wrestling!), loves to be around both dogs and people, and doesn't get upset over things. We think Rudy is probably a mix of Boxer, Pit Bull, German Shepherd, and perhaps Basenji, since he has a curly tail and makes very entertaining yodeling noises when playing. Whatever his heritage, he's a one-of-a-kind puppy, and we're lucky to have him!
