Say hello to Rusty - handsome right?

Rusty has arrived to Connecticut and is fostering with our friends at John Gagnon’s Pet Resort where he’s doing really well.

His foster saw him on a highway, he pulled over and Rusty jumped in - this dog is no fool!

Rusty is house trained, crate trained and loves to be outside in the yard - a fenced yard is required for this very active boy. He is a wonderfully spirited happy boy! Wants to please and will thrive in an active structured environment.

Rusty would make an awesome running, hiking, boating, biking buddy!

He’s done really well in boarding but the team thinks daycare is too overwhelming for him - he gets all riled up. A home with one other dog would be fine or even two of the same playstyle.

Check out his interactions with a family child:

IMPORTANT INFORMATION - 

Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.  

Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.

Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
