Meet Rusty

Rusty is a sweet, calm 13-year-old Jack Russell Terrier/Whippet mix who is looking for a loving home to spend the rest of his days.

Rusty will follow you everywhere; he is so calm and so sweet and just wants to be where his people are. When he is not being your shadow, he enjoys snuggling up for a nap.

After slow introductions, Rusty coexists well with other dogs; he currently lives with a 20-pound Chihuahua and does just fine. We do not know how he would do with cats, but we do know he does well with kids.

Gentle Rusty is malnourished, mostly deaf, has a Grade 5 heart murmur, collapsed trachea and lumps and bumps from age – he takes pills in the morning and at night to help with this. He does not have much time left on Earth but has been enjoying all the moments that come his way.

Rusty has been enjoying short walks each day to stretch his legs and enjoy the outdoors. While his foster mom works from the garden in the fenced backyard, he gets the opportunity to take an afternoon nap on the grass and loves it.

He gets very sad when his people leave so he would love to find a home someone is home most, if not all day. He is also not crate trained and will make that very apparent if he must be in there.

Rusty is looking for a calm household who will love him dearly for the time he has left.





His adoption fee includes spay/neuter, heartworm/Lyme test, all age-appropriate vaccinations (distemper, rabies, & Bordetella), HW and flea/tick preventative, and microchip implant and registration.

There is no guarantee of age and breed as a rescue animal's history is unknown. All ages and breeds are best guess.

Adoption fees INCLUDE a mandatory sales tax of 7.525%.

Due to post-adoption services provided, it is Pet Haven's policy to only place dogs into homes within a 75-mile radius of the Minneapolis, MN city center.
