Meet Rusty

Meet Rusty, a sweet one-year-old, 45 lb. chocolate pittie mix with quite a story to tell...this beautiful boy was found wandering the streets of South Carolina with a NINE POUND chain around his neck (see video)! He quickly captured our hearts and made the journey to his foster home in Connecticut. Living as a former outdoor dog, he is now getting all the love and enjoying the luxuries of life indoors.

Rusty is a gentle soul who, despite all he's been through, loves people. He enjoys walks around the neighborhood, his toys, playtime in the yard, and treats. He is great with other pups, although he is a rough player. He is currently in a foster home with children and loves being by their side. This guy loves nothing more than hanging out on the couch or playing with his people.

He does have separation anxiety so he will require an adopter that works from home or is gone minimal hours throughout the day. In order to adopt Rusty, there must be a training commitment as his past homes let him down not providing him with what he needed to succeed. Overall, he's a sweet boy and is even housetrained! Due to prior trauma being stuffed in a crate, we do not recommend crate training. He will require a home that will allow him the time and patience to decompress. A fenced yard is highly preferred and experience is a plus!

Rusty's adoption fee is $350 and he is up to date on vaccines, microchipped, heartworm negative, and neutered. If you are interested in adopting this lovely lad, please complete the application at form.jotform.com/200883908893166. For questions, email info@happilyfureverafter.org.
