About Dusty

Yorkie / Shih Tzu
Age: Young Adult

Say Hello to Dusty! He's 5 years old and weighs 10 pounds. Dusty found refuge in Rescue after spending some time in a shelter in Western Mass. Initial reports indicated Dusty was protective of high value items including his bed. Sometimes environment is a factor and once the circumstances change, the dog's temperament changes. This appears to be the case with Dusty. Dusty recently had surgery to repair of a 'cherry eye' a prolapsed gland within the third eyelid. The condition is 'cosmetic' and does not impair vision. Dusty been a trooper with his eye drops and the stole a few hearts from the staff members that cared for him during his post operative period. If it wasn't for his cone of shame, you would never know he was recovering from surgery. Dusty is now accepting applications for his forever pet parent's. Candidates should be patient and have the ability to love Dusty unconditionally. Dusty would also love to have a canine sibling to teach him the household routine. If you are up to the task, there is a lifetime of happy tails in your future. Dusty is neutered and will be microchipped and up to date on vaccines before adoption. Dusty is being fostered in Shrewsbury, MA. The adoption fee is $ 350 If you are interested in finding out more about Dusty, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser: We expect that all adopted dogs will enroll in a formal dog training class with their new owners. Obedience and training classes are an excellent way to learn more about your newly adopted dog, gain handling and training experience, and improve your relationship with your pet.

We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label
