I know so many of you on Cyberhound have been worrying about Rudolph and wishing him well, and I have great news!

A Daily Drooler has offered Rudolph from House of Puddles a permanent foster home and he will be going to his new home tomorrow. He will have a family with 3 kids on a small farm with chickens, goats, and a cow. He will be an only dog and his new mom is busy washing a doggiebed tonight so her kids will have somewhere to sit since she's already said the couch is Rudolph's!

This family had a senior basset wander up in October. They tried unsuccessfully to find her family and got her some much-needed vet care. Heartbreakingly, Butterscotch peacefully fell asleep on Christmas Eve and never woke again. They only had her 2 short months. So we all think that Butterscotch had a paw in sending Rudolph to her family. They really need a basset to love, and Rudolph really needs a home.

They understand that Rudolph has trust issues and other problems and are coming into this with their eyes wide open. Won't you join me in drooling for a happy ending for this sweet boy? I was able to meet them on New Year's Day and I think Rudolph has won the lottery.

I'm sorry that it didn't work out for Vision but Vision, I'm sure there's a dog out there who will be perfect for you. Rudolph turned out not to be right for a first-time adopter and I hope and pray that this situation will be perfect for him and for his new family.

I have invited Rudolph's new mom to join Cyberhound to keep us all updated on this sweet boy in his new life.

That is wonderful news for Rudolph! Sounds like he may have found his forever home. I hope his new mommy joins Cyberhound so that we can all see how he is doing in the future. Thanks for the update.

Yes!! Rudolph is doing GREAT in his new foster home!!!! I think they may fail Fostering 101!!!!! :lol:

Rudolph has a diary on his Dogster page with lots of updates: http://www.dogster.com/dogs/679441

Also, Rudolph's foster mom saw an ad for a 12 week old basset puppy on her Freecycle board who was about to be sent to the pound so she has *2* bassets now. Rudolph has a baby sister, Penelope!

Rudolph's foster mom is auctioning off a beautiful capelet she made for her basset that just went to the Bridge. Keep an eye on http://www.bassethoundtown.com/blog/ -- it will be listed there.

Thanks for asking!

Very good news for Rudolph!

I saw that his new mom posted an update and pictures of him (doing great) in the General Discussion forum.

I'm glad it's going well for them. He's such a cute guy.
