Facts about Prada

  • Breed: Dutch Shepherd Mix
  • Color: Brindle
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 1558
Prada was running out of time at a local shelter. She was so well-liked by volunteers that an appeal went out for her rescue, and Dusty Paws Rescue responded. She is now in a foster home with a large male dog and two medium female dogs. Prada is 2-3 years old and about 55 lbs.

Prada is affectionate with people - she bestows kisses and likes to snuggle and be petted. She knows the basic obedience commands of sit, down and come and appears to be house trained. She is not a chewer and doesn't dig in the yard.

Prada is a lean, athletic girl who likes to play. At the shelter she was best buds with a tank of a male pit bull and they would charge around the exercise yard together. Prada had a short adjustment period with the other dogs in her foster home, but she is fine with them now. An alpha female, Prada shows dominance when meeting other dogs. Once they acknowledge her leadership, she is happy to play nicely with them. She would be a good playmate for a submissive dog.

About Dusty Paws Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small group of volunteers whose mission is to save abandoned, neglected and/or abused animals by placing them into permanent, safe, stable and caring new homes. All of us have experience with volunteering in shelters and continue to volunteer.

We do not mind driving to do a home visit nor do we mind taking the time to go anywhere to look at a potential needy animal who needs to be saved from any situation, either in a shelter or in a home. We do take owner surrenders and have an owner assist program but most of our animals come from shelters.

We hate to see any animal suffer and this is why we do this.

Our Adoption Process...

Our process to adopt is as follows: An application form is completed and submitted at which time we will contact the applicant within 24 hours and discuss the animal they are interested in and make an appointment to meet or give them the date of the next adoption showcase. The entire family should meet along with any resident animals, if possible. Once that is done and it seems like a good fit, a home visit is required at which time we can leave the animal for a required sleepover period of approximately 10-14 days and a Sleepover Agreement is then signed; if that works out then we can proceed with adoption. Our adoption fee is $300 for dogs, $100 for cats, $350 for puppies under one year of age and $50 is refunded upon receipt of a Certificate of Completion of Training from a certified training facility/trainer for a puppy adoption. At any given time after the adoption, Dusty Paws Rescue will accept back into our program the adopted animal if it doesn't work out.
