Rusty's Info...

I am good with kids and not good with dogs.

Rusty's Story...
Rusty had come from a rescue in Texas and was being fostered. The rescue was to find him a home but has not responded to any of the foster family's calls. Rusty had bitten one of the foster's dogs while they were putting on coats to take the dogs out and she was afraid if he stayed it might happen again. It would be best if he were the only dog in the home. He is very friendly with people and children, however, he may be too playful for a small child and may accidentally knock them down. He has never been around cats.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Somerset 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 Somerset 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 Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Somerset paves the way for another one to be saved.
