Rusty's Info...

Rusty's Story...
This precious man is Rusty and he's waiting for you to come adopt him! Rusty is an eight year old Yorkie mix who is fully grown at ten pounds. He was surrendered to the shelter as his former owners were moving and could not take Rusty with them. We would love to see Rusty find a new home where he can become a part of the family.

This little guy can be shy at first, but he's incredibly sweet once he gets to know you! Rusty is happiest when snuggling in his bed, chewing on a Rusty-sized toy. He also loves to go outside and sniff everything! His former home was very laid-back and calm. However, Rusty would do well in just about any living situation, as long as his new owners have the time to work on house-training. He gets along well with dogs of similar size and would do best with children over the age of 12.

Rusty has been neutered, vaccinated and is heartworm negative. If you've been searching for a pint-sized pup, stop by to meet little Rusty!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rusty, a Germantown Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier for sale in Germantown, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Germantown.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Germantown already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Germantown breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier breeders who help with Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Germantown paves the way for another one to be saved.
