BE SURE TO WATCH DUSTY'S VIDEO.
Dusty is a fantastic boy - this from his trainers at John Gagnon's Pet Resort where he is residing - we are moving him to an "in home" foster home but can tell you that he is great with other dogs, house trained, playful, wonderful with people including children (he previously lived with 2 young boys).
Dusty had upheaval in his life when his human parents divorced and mom just didn't have the time to work with him anymore so she returned him to us (she adopted him as a baby); we've know Dusty since he was 6 weeks old and know his siblings who are located in New England.
Dusty is 1.5 years old . He currently weighs approx. 65-70 lbs and seems to be if slim bulid. Dusty is up to date on all his vaccinations including influenza vaccine; he is housetrained and is heartworm negative. Dusty cannot be adopted to a family with cats.
His best friend is a big shar-pei mix named Riley and they play endlessly in daycare - Dusty loves daycare and does quite well there.

Rescue Group Info...
PAWS is comprised of a small group of volunteers from New England and Tennessee trying to reduce the euthanization rate (previously 90%) at the Tipton County Animal Control shelter in Brighton, Tennessee. This shelter is forced to euthanize thousands of animals each year due to irresponsible pet owners that do not spay/ neuter their dogs in the area. Millions of dogs in America are euthanized each year due to lack of space and lack of funding to try and find them better homes.
Our mission is to save as many animals as possible, removing them from the shelter, having their veterinary needs met prior to traveling and then finding them loving homes throughout New England. We do this only with the assistance of many people volunteering their time by going to the shelter, transporting the dogs to the vet, fostering dogs who need special care, and arranging for their new and happy homes in this area. Most importantly, we cannot do any of this without those people willing to open their homes and hearts to these lovely creatures.
All of our dogs are located either in foster homes in New England or Tennessee/Missouri. Please email our volunteers to ask about the specific pet that you are interested in.
Donation: $450.00 (includes $140.00 transport fee paid directly to USDA approved transport company)
