Rudy

ISG Mascot

Rudy is ISG's mascot. Originally bred as a service animal labradoodle -- more lab than doodle, Rudy found his way into Valerie's heart when his intended owner discovered him hardly hypoallergenic. Rudy can perform an array of tricks and tasks as long as treats are made available. He loves pizza, his fellow dog, Kai, and Kai's owner Lynn.
