Rudy...needs a home

This little guy showed up at my friends doorsteps...cold, and hungry. He is probably around 2 or 3years old....We think his front left toe is broken because he limps, and he isn't neutered. He is so skinny you can see his ribs. He's So sweet though...you can take a bone right out of his mouth. Can anyone help! He seems to understand french and is very well behaved.

to your friend for taking him in. So sad he is out on his own at this time of year. So cold outside. I hope he finds his home soon.

Just wanted to add that my friend can not keep him and may have to send him to the SPCA; she is leaving for NY for the holidays and needs to find a foster at least until she gets back.
I do feel uncomfortable with cats going to the SPCA just because there are so many and usually are put down, however not sure how lucky dogs are at the SPCA? do you think he will be safe?
...and they have tried to find the owner, but my friend feels that this dog has been mistreated ..his collar was almost in his skin it was so tight.

Cpietra, I just emailed luckypenny to ask her to reply as she would be the best person to ask. Well, BenMax too but she went to her fiancee's for the holidays.

I'll also send LP a pm in case she logs on here before checking her emails.

He will certainly be safe at the Montreal SPCA. Yellow Labs with great temperaments are always in demand. They also work with many reputable/responsible rescues.

What did your friend do to try to find his owners? Was he scanned for a chip? I have to caution to be extremely careful when assuming a dog has been abused/mistreated. A dog could be naturally skittish, shy around strangers, or fearful of certain noises/objects because he/she is not used to them. This dog could also have been recently adopted from another family or from a pound/shelter...or he could have been on the run for a while now. His family could be distraught looking for him .
