Sparky Joe (also known as Rusty) is an 18 month old mix of something. The vet thinks he is a rhodesian ridgeback/hound mix, but this is rescue, so we never know for sure :-) . He is about 55 lbs and a bundle of young dog energy.  He is 100% house trained , in fact he is actually very private about his business and only goes on the side of the house :) He also is crate trained and sleeps great through the night. He does get along well with other dogs and loves to play with them. He likes children and has grown up with children, but he is a big, bouncy boy and can knock them over, so we would suggest children over the age of 12. Rusty can play a game of fetch for as long as you will throw the ball for him!  He is trained in several commands. He sits, lays down and goes to his 'place' well.  He likes to walk on the leash, but does need some work in that area.  He is great in the car and rides like a champ.  Rusty's new home should have another playful dog (probably not too small) for him to have fun with and a fenced yard. He has two best friend dogs in his foster home now...one is blind and the other is blind & deaf and they both love to play with Rusty!  He would love an active person, who wants to take him places too...hiking, car rides, etc. .   
Rusty is a sweet, handsome boy who needs someone who is committed to him forever and will continue to train him to be the best dog he can be.  He loves to be with you and snuggle time everyday is also a must!
Young dogs of this breed mix need physical and mental exercise to keep them happy and well balanced!  Rusty is a wonderful, fun and active dog!  If you think you would like to bring this boy into your home and start the New Year off together, please contact us at CcrNew England@comcast.net and tell us why Rusty would be perfect for you!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are a full volunteer rescue organization. All of our animals are kept in loving foster homes, receiving the best care possible. A completed application must be submitted and approved to meet with our dogs/pups. A completed application helps us determine compatibility and also helps us to ensure a successful adoption.

Our Adoption Process...

Most all our dogs are fostered in Tennessee and transport up to the Northeast or New England. Our fees start at $500 and can be higher depending on the dog and circumstances for their vetting. All fees cover the health certificate, transportation up to designated places for families to pick up their pre-adopted dog, spay/neuter, rabies, all shots, fecal and dewormings, microchip, complete vet check up and 4 way heartworm test if dogs are older than 8 months.
