Remarkable Rudy Defies the Odds

Cape May animal control officers got a big surprise when they were asked to retrieve the body of a dog that had been hit by a car in Estell Manor and left on the side of the road for three days. Rudy, a tough little pooch from Wildwood, NJ was not quite ready to give up the fight despite multiple life threatening injuries. His owner, Caroline Ranoia, expressed relief in an interview with a local NBC reporter.

  1. I'm telling you, JRs never die; they're indestructible! Good for little Rudy. (Rotten people - how can they hit a little animal and take off like that?!)

  6. This pup must be destined for something big - after all he went through and survived - there has to be a reason.

    Great story, thanks for sharing.

    Have a great weekend.

  7. I agree, he must be destined for something big!

    How can someone hit a dog and just keep on going? That poor dog has suffered more than anyone should.

  9. Very sweet story - but I was wondering...if you knew you were going to be on TV don't you think you would have mowed the grass and cleaned up a bit? Poor Rudy could barely make his way through the grass! Sorry - I just think about those kind of things. Some dog's people!

  12. Hi - This is Rudy's mom - Caroline. So nice to hear all of your kind thoughts and wishes - sorry Krista - I did mow the grass, and the yard is amazingly beautiful in the summer - really. We are redoing the back yard and there was stuff everywhere, trust me I was just as embarrassed about it - I thought the camera crew would be inside. Oh well - I guess I need to realize that it wasn't about the back yard, but about Rudy and his amazing recovery.
