“We brought him to our shelter in hopes somebody would come adopt him and give him a second chance at life,” the shelter official said.
And that is what is happening now, according to news reports.
The shelter has found a potential adopter for Rudolph and is verifying information on the puppy’s future family.
"He's a miracle dog, absolutely," Kylie Jo Mitchell, who works at the pet rescue, told WQAD. "I've never heard of anything like this, ever," Mitchell said. "This is a first."
