Custis is a gorgeous 2 year old male Basset/Beagle mix. He is about 30 lbs. Custis is shy with new people but warms up and bonds well to his human. He really loves dogs and his personality REALLY comes out when he gets to play with other dogs! He is a very sweet and quiet little guy who would love to find his forever home!

Custis will do better in a suburban environment with less city noise as he finds this stressful. He needs a patient person who is able to help him gain confidence. Custis is easily stressed by young children and so he will be happiest in an adult only home. Being with other confident dogs really helps Custis so we are looking for a home for him with other dogs, ideally about his size.

Custis is in a wonderful foster home. He was at first really scared for the man in the home but he's really blossomed and is good friends with him now. Custis is eager to make new friends who are patient and willing to give him time to gain trust.

The adoption fee for this dog is $300. This fee INCLUDES spay/neuter and microchip. If the animal you are adopting is not already spayed/neutered, you will be required to sign a contract legally obligating you to have the animal altered. ***Note that puppy adoption fees generate revenue that goes towards older, special needs animals that need our help. They include surgeries, heartworm treatment, boarding costs....all things that often result in adoptable dogs and cats being left behind to be euthanized. So adopting a puppy saves not just one life, but many! Our adult animal fees range and are based on: fees we pay to shelters; vetting costs; transport costs and boarding costs. Some animals cost more than others to rescue so that is why our fees range from $275-$350.

You can save animals like this one by becoming a foster! Fosters are like way stations between high kill shelters and forever homes. We need fosters so that we can save dogs before they are euthanized at the shelters. If you are interested in becoming a foster, please check out our information about fostering by visiting http://www.homewardtrails.org/foster-a-pet/dog-and-cat-foster-program/
