Rusty's Story...
Howdy there! I am Rusty. I am a male husky / chow mix that was born in mid-November 2011. I have a beautiful tan reddish colored coat with black markings. My snout is black and I have a black stripe on my tail as well as black on the fringes of my ears. My coat is medium in length and very soft to the touch. I have floppy little ears that have black on the tips of them. I have a very outgoing personality. I am very loving and enjoy my time outside playing with my foster children. I am very adventurous and love exploring new places. I love being held and cuddled and as any dog will tell you there is nothing more satisfying that a good tummy rub or getting scratched behind your ears. I get along great with all kinds of dogs and love playing chase. I have learned to share my toys and water very nicely. I am being crate trained and my foster mom is house training me. I am also learning to walk on a leash. I am current on all my vaccines, flea and heartworm prevention and will be microchipped when I am adopted. I am looking for a family to call my own.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rusty, a Smithfield Chow Chow/Husky puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chow Chow/Husky for sale in Smithfield, or seeking a Chow Chow/Husky puppy from a breeder in Smithfield.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Smithfield 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 Smithfield 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 Chow Chow/Husky breeders who help with Chow Chow/Husky rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Smithfield paves the way for another one to be saved.
