Rusty is an approximately 6-8 months old possible Chihuahua/Poodle mix, we are uncertain of any other possible mix. He weighed 9 lbs., when neutered on 1/5/17. Ready to arrive 1/28/17.. Please read everything below.
This darling dog is one of 68 dogs rescued from a hoarding situation in West Alabama. These dogs have never been abused! The situation where they lived deteriorated when dogs were not spay and neutered, more and more dogs were reproducing. It is clear that every dog was loved. Everyone of them wants to be held. They are shy at first, but warm up VERY QUICKLY. We are working on housebreaking them, a difficult task due to the sheer volume. We are finding crate training first is best, these dogs were never outside, never walked on grass. Rescued dogs are always grateful! These babies will be wonderful companions for anyone willing to take the little extra time to show them the ropes of having there own home. As you can imagine they do great with other dogs.
