Additional info:
Dusty is an adorable Shih Tzu/Havanese/Terrier mix with a beautiful white/grey coat. He came in very matted and obviously not well cared for. Hee is very shy but very sweet and desperately in need of some TLC. Dusty is a happy, bouncy boy who is extremely playful, he loves toys and playing fetch. Sometimes he needs to be corrected in what he chews, but he listens well. He's very confident and good with other dogs and even cats. He is a little shy when meeting new people, especially men but he warms up quickly. Dusty is crate trained and real easy to take care of but needs some basic training. Being picked up and loved is one of his favorite things. Do you have a lap he can sit in?

Our adoption fees are $300 for adult dogs, and $350 for puppies 3-6 months, and $400 for puppies 2-3 months. All dogs are spayed/ neutered, vaccinated and mirco-chipped prior to adoption. We also give new owners an ID tag.
