About Rusty

Adoption Fee: $350
Pit Bull / Lab
Age: Puppy
Sex: Male

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 warms up quickly, but is hesitant about exploring new places. He enjoys walks around the neighborhood, his toys, playtime in the yard, and is starting to understand just how good treats are. He has a calm demeanor and is great with other dogs, as well as young children. It will take Rusty some time to get past the trauma of his past life but he's on his way! He is currently working on housetraining, however does walk well on leash. He will require a home that will allow him time to decompress and would prefer a fenced yard to enjoy with his new family. He is up to date on vaccines, microchipped, heartworm negative, and neutered. If you are interested in adopting Rusty, please complete the application at For questions, email [email protected]
