Rusty...still waiting.....194 days WAITING...in a cage at the shelter. Eventually Rusty could possibly be acclimated to other dogs and young kids. We just don’t want to set him up for failure and overwhelm him right from the start. He deserves to enjoy a home and person(s) to himself so he can build that special bond you develop with your pets. He’s never had that experience before but you can totally tell he’s ready . He seems non-interested in cats, no obvious signs of excessive prey drive. A confident kitty that wasn’t zooming around the house would probably be just fine after proper intros. Rusty is also pretty much housetrained although we don’t like to say that because accidents happen. We don’t believe he’s ever had an accident in his kennel even when he’s had to wait longer than normal.
 

The nice ladies at the shelter tell me I walk very well on a leash, have some recall and know how to sit when asked!  I'm a big teddy bear needing a home and family to love forever! 

Ahhhhhh how has this teddy bear not been snatched up yet? Rusty is as squishy and cuddly as they come. He will need a strong leader to help him gain confidence and understand what it means to be a dog that's loved and a part of the family.  Rusty needs some guidance in life and once he connects with you he will look to you to show him what to do, but he needs a understanding owner that will allow him to take his time getting to know new things and learn his body language. Get to know this cutie and you will see how much love he has to offer!
 

Visitors to the shelter are by appointment only and after an application has been submitted online:
