Born a simple sheepdog to an Amish family in America’s heartland, Rudy knew his purpose was to make kids smile. While he tried being a sled dog in Aspen and a show pup at Westminster, Rudy did not feel his talents were being used to their full potential. Then one day, Rudy heard of this amazing father / son duo specializing in kid’s dentistry in Indianapolis and West Lafayette and knew he had to be a part of it. After hearing his story, the Bozic’s adopted Rudy and his life has not been the same since. Rudy loves meeting new kids and is excited to see you at your next visit.
Rudy graduated from puppy school in 2018 where he excelled in retrieving and herding. Following puppy school, Rudy went on to dog college. Rudy credits his dog mom, Lisa, for making sure he was ready for school every day and for keeping him out of trouble!
Outside of the office, Rudy enjoys riding in the car, chasing the occasional squirrel, and spending time with his family. Rudy has an incredible ability to make people (especially kids) smile whenever they come around him – you could say its his Super Power!
