Formally known as "Ridge", Dude came to be with us under unfortunate circumstances. Due to his original placement, he was left in poor conditions. We witnessed not only the filthy conditions of this boy but the same with the others housed with this individual. At only 1 year old he was allowed to learn it was acceptable to urinate when in a crate. It had to be the norm for all his dogs as none had crate mats and all were peeing in their crates. Bystanders pulled dogs from these crates so they would not have to sit in the standing urine. While at a dog show we witnessed a judge disgusted enough to have an outburst that he had to take a break to wash his hands due to the filth this person's dogs were covered in. It is my opinion that a crate and run is all this dog knew and was never allowed in a home (he doesn't have one picture to prove otherwise).
At 17 months old, I ran into this person the 2nd and last time. Only to find Dude was in even worse condition. He was missing hair at least 4 inches up the length of his legs. His nails were not only extremely long but stained yellow. His feet were flat, he had no muscle tone and was missing hair from his muzzle and along his back. Even through all this he was still so happy to be receiving attention from myself and a friend of mine. We left him then thinking how bad we felt that we were not allowed to take him with us and that we badly needed to wash our hands before touching anything!
Dude lived what I can only hope was a fulfilled and loved life with me. He was so amazing, energetic, sweet and non-connotational to any dog. I will never forgive the people who gave him such an unfortunate start in life. This was one boy that would never even deserve a raised voice. I will always picture him jumping straight in the air line a pogo-stick with excitement every time he saw me or I walked away from him...and not to mention his high pitch girly bark. I love you Dude. You will forever be missed. Your short life was not fair. I will forever remember all the good about you.
