His "crime"? He's been without a home too long. Rudolph suffers from a litany of medical conditions - dermatitis, dry eye, dental issues.
He also has heartworm and a small growth on his back.
This is a dog forsaken, abandoned and swallowed by the shelter system.
Except, somehow in the absence of any obvious love in his life, he still radiates it. As brightly as the ruby red nose of his holiday namesake.
"If this guy could talk, he would tell you he is so worth saving," reads the Facebook post. "He was one of the happiest dogs in the shelter."
