Dusty is a handsome 17-month-old Cattle Dog / Shepherd boy with beautiful golden-red coloring. He was a stray that ended up on the euthanasia list at a high-kill shelter in California. He was rescued to us in August 2016 and has been learning how to coexist with humans ever since. At first he was first terrified of people but with lots of love and patience he is learning how to coexist with them and 'be a dog'! He gets along wonderfully with other dogs but is still learning to trust people. He has learned how to go potty outside but needs free access as leashes make him nervous, and he will crate when coerced by treats. His foster is continuing to make slow progress with him, and we are confident he will get there with time and patience. Dusty is a special case and not a traditional adoptive dog - he is patiently waiting for the right family who will enjoy working with him and growing his progress!
