Rusty - ID # A0930606
***Rescued by the BDRA***
Rusty is an adorable and sweet boy. A male, Beagle/ Basset X, 7 years old, with cloudy eyes he is vision impaired and has some skin issues on his face, weighs about 40 pounds, and was owner surrendered. Rusty deserves better!
A volunteer writes: Rusty was surrendered by his owner due to his age and health issues. The sad part about this of course is that his owners let it get to this point and then just said 'done'. Rusty deserves better. Rusty lay patiently in his kennel until it was his turn to go out. He stepped down from his kennel carefully and out we went. He may be housetrained "going" as soon as we were out the door. His previous owner tells us that he has lived with dogs and likes to play and has lived with cats and ignores them. Rusty clearly has some issues, his eyes are cloudy and is vision impaired, he has some skin issues on his face and he is a bit on the chunky side. None of his issues have prevented him from being friendly and sweet, low key and gentle. He walks easily on the leash, carefully by my side as we talk. He was happy to get some petting and attention, and happy to be out in the warm sun. When it was time to go back into his kennel he did so reluctantly. I showed him where to find his water, he ate some dinner and settled down for the night. Rusty is a sweetheart who needs some medical attention along with some love. Can you be his hero today?
DO NOT call and say you are adopting unless you truly intend on physically going to the shelter to adopt the dog. It ties up phones lines and is a waste of the staff's time to explain the adoption procedure over the phone for someone who is purposely not going to show up. They need every free second of their time to answer calls, assist actual adopters, process intakes, and care for the animals. More importantly, they will note the dog’s file that an adopter is en route which will prevent an actual adopter from saving the dog. This is considered a "fake adoption" hold and that is how dogs fall through the cracks and end up being killed.
