8/12/2020 Rusty’s forever home has been chosen and he is now with them settling in as a “foster to adopt” as he will be neutered this week and will need to recover.Rusty can’t tell us much about his past, but he’s sure looking forward to a loving and supportive future!He wandered onto a farm in rural North Carolina on July 1, and the dog-loving family provided him with shelter and food while they posted about him on-line and sought to return him to his owners. He was not chipped, and had no collar or tags, and after two weeks, American Brittany Rescue stepped in to help.The vet who first saw Rusty estimates him to be three years old He has started his shots had a few good baths to remove the fleas and ticks, is enjoying a steady diet of healthy food to help him gain some weight and settling into the good life. Rusty has been living with his foster family in the Charlotte area since, and is awaiting neutering, microchipping and completion of his shots. With the pandemic surgery appointments take a bit longer to line up so we thought we would start looking for his forever home so they would be all ready when he is!He’s a love bug, super friendly, mostly house-broken, and has no health issues. He loves to play fetch, and he’s now very comfortable both inside and outside. He enjoys his squeaky toys, and his tennis ball. He loves kids and adults alike; he doesn’t bark at passing dogs (although he’s very interested and has played really well with otherdogs!), and he’s content in a fenced-in backyard. He understands simple commands including “no,” “down,”, “off,” and his name. He would do well in a home with other dogs, because he sometimes gets concerned when his humans leave the room.If you’re ready for a young male Brittany who’s ready for you, Rusty could be your guy! Please fill out our online adoption application and note Rusty. Rusty is currently 37lbs and may benefit from the company of a furry canine companion to reassure him when his people leave as he has shown some separation anxiety as his foster home has no other pets currently.
