Dusty D6527

Dusty (Watch my video!) was an 11th hour rescue from a shelter and about to lose his life the next morning. He had no options left and no one has stepped up to help him. The shelter contacted us and we rescued him.

Dusty was adopted from the shelter a year ago and returned due to lack of time to train him. He is moderately active, athletic, needs training, can jump up to face level (wants attention), will chew leash (excited) and needs more dog socialization. Dusty was fine with other nice shelter dogs but stiff. Dusty is unsure how to socialize (under-socialized). He was fine with a female dog that gave him kisses on his face.

Shelter staff says he is very friendly and lovable with people. Dusty loves attention and being petted. Many adore him. Once he gets his exercise/walk, he relaxes and settles down. Dusty needs a very experienced adult dog foster home with someone around more that has good training skills and is able to exercise him daily. More info. to come from his temp. foster home.

Update: Dusty is doing well at his foster home and learning. Knows basic commands. He listens until he gets the zoomies so he needs recall work. He needs someone around with good training skills to guide him. No cats. Fine with other dogs his size who are gentle nice with him and going for walks.

He has fear issues with loud noises on the streets when he walks and will pancake to the ground and freeze. Basic training tips are not working yet. Dusty will get up once he knows they are turning back to head home. He is happy and loves his walks on quiet trails. He is not a city dog. Dusty needs an adult home. Kids 12 yrs and up. Dusty need continue supervision and training. With his foster home, he is very lovable.
