MT-Rusty's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.

MT-Rusty's Story...
This 12 year old came to HfH from Montana and is VERY bonded to Obsidian.

Good with horses; very shy and distrusting of people. Rusty hides if given the chance, and depends on his proximity to Obsidian to feel safe. He is quite attached to Obsidian, one would even say attached at the hip. He would need to at least be fostered with Obsidian until he can grow to trust humans enough to be comfortable on his own.

The trainers in Montana believe they were the first ones to ever halter him. He is very touchy and sensitive, and will pull away under any quick pressure. He did well after spending some time with him and loaded easily, however he still requires a lot of ground work and trust building before you can begin riding him.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

MT-Rusty, a Hitchcock Belgian/Paint/Pinto was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Belgian/Paint/Pinto for sale in Hitchcock, or seeking a Belgian/Paint/Pinto from a breeder in Hitchcock.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hitchcock already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Hitchcock breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Belgian/Paint/Pinto breeders who help with Belgian/Paint/Pinto rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hitchcock paves the way for another one to be saved.
