Our Featured Dog

We need foster families!

This dog is not available for adoption.

This face is just one of the faces that was saved from death in a shelter.

How did we do it? With generous donations from people like you! Also, our foster homes were waiting with open arms to keep these dogs in their house while we find them new homes. Please won't you consider fostering a dog for Rudy's Rescue???

Right now, there are many dogs and puppies in the pound waiting for us to bring them to safety. Without the support of our foster families we cannot pull these dogs from the pound and bring them to Rochester.

If you live in or around Buffalo, Rochester or Syracuse. Please click here to fill out our online application.

Fostering is a good option for those who love dogs but cannot commit to a dog for 10-14 years. Most of our dogs are in their foster homes for two weeks to two months.

Our featured dog is Libby.

Libby is a 3 year old, extremely sweet natured Lab mix, weighing 65 pounds. Her short coat is dark brown brindle with a white chest. She is spayed, up to date on all vaccinations, and is medium energy.

Libby was most likely hit by her humans. Loud voices cause her to act afraid until she realizes she won’t be hurt. She is learning to trust. She wants to be with her humans and will follow them around from room to room. A quiet home with older, calmer children and perhaps a companion dog would be ideal.

No cats, though!

She cannot tolerate the crate but does well in a gated room when left alone for short periods of time. She is trustworthy and does not chew things such as shoes and furniture. She would do best in a home where she is not left alone all day.

Libby gets along with the resident dog, also a Lab mix, and loves running in the fenced backyard playing with and chasing him and vice versa. She LOVES to fetch! A squeaky Kong ball is her favorite and she also loves playing with squeaky toys. Bonus: She does not destroy the toys.

Libby settles down nicely in the house and naps on one of several dog beds and sleeps all night on a dog bed. 

Her leash skills are not too bad unless a squirrel, bird or rabbit is spotted and then she will tug. A harness is best for walking her. Even with a fenced yard, Libby LOVES her walks.

Because of Libby’s high prey drive, an invisible fence will not work for her and a physical fence is needed and definitely a home with no cats.

Libby knows sit, down and come. We are working on stay. She is eager to please and food motivated so training is easy and fun for her.

This sweet girl will bond with you and be your devoted companion for many years.

Our featured dog is Sammy.

Hi, my name is a Sam. I'm 12 yrs. old, weigh 70 lb, and am told I'm a handsome, purebred yellow Labrador Retriever. My sister, Sasha, is 10 yrs. old, weighs 73 lbs, and I know she's a pretty, purebred chocolate Labrador Retriever. 

We are a bonded pair that can't live without each other. We love each other very much and have lived together since Sasha was 8 weeks old. I’m very sociable and follow our foster Mom around. Sasha keeps track of both of us.

Ask about the Seniors for Seniors adoption program. Seniors are the BEST.

We are well mannered, quietly greet visitors and are socialized with dogs of many sizes and breeds. We’ve never lived with cats but we could meet them. We are spayed/neutered, housebroken, UTD on vaccines, have free reign in the house day or night, and sleep on our pet beds.

We currently have a fenced back yard that only has one step to access from the kitchen, and that works great. We are not candidates for invisible fencing We would both prefer a quieter home and minimal stairs. We are given the opportunity to go outside throughout the day and evening and wouldn't like being left alone all day. 

We know sit, stay, and come. We like to relax next to our fosters when it is reading or TV time. We love attention and respond with lots of tail wagging and a kiss now and then.

Please check out Sasha's profile, too!

Our featured dog is Sasha.

Hi, my name is Sasha. I'm a 10 yr, 73 lb, pretty, purebred chocolate Labrador Retriever. I'm part of what's called a bonded pair! Me and my brother Sam have lived together my whole life and I love him very much. He is a 12 yr, 70 lb, handsome, yellow purebred Labrador Retriever. 

We are available as a bonded pair. Ask us about our Seniors for Seniors adoption program!

Sam is very sociable and follows our foster Mom around. I keep track of both of them so I do not miss out on any fun.

We are well mannered, quietly greet visitors and are socialized with dogs of many sizes and breeds. The family did not have a cat. The children in our previous home have grown up and now off on their own. We are spayed/neutered, housebroken, UTD on vaccines , have free reign in the house day or night, and sleep on our pet beds.

Our foster home has a fenced back yard that only has one step to access from the kitchen, which we appreciate. We are not candidates for invisible fencing We would both prefer a quieter home and minimal stairs, please.

We are given the opportunity to go outside to do our business throughout the day and evening.

Both Sammy and I know sit, stay, and come. We like to relax next to our foster family when it is reading or TV time. We love attention and respond with lots of tail wagging and a kiss now and then.

If you don't already know this, seniors make the BEST dogs. Please have a look at Sam's profile, too.
