Rusty's Info...

Rusty's Story...
Oct. 2, 2012: Rusty is currently re-learning what housebreaking means =) He is living a with other dogs and learning to go to the door when he has to go potty. Rusty is adventurous and stubborn which is typical of the Beagle breed, but he is very food motivated and now knows to 'sit' and 'beg' for treats.

Rusty is a nature small game hunting breed that shows great interest in small animals (such as rabbits and ferrets) so he needs a family where he can be the center of attention.

Rusty's medical conditions will require constant upkeep. This includes medicated baths at least once a week, and anti-inflammatories to control the overactive reactions of skin glands on his face, legs, and tail. He is great with getting baths and loves the treats he gets after it =)
He is ok with getting his eye drops but again, working with treats will help him along ;-)

Rusty is a good dog, loves his cuddles with people, and loves being around everyone. He gets along with other dogs (resting his head on those who will let him), he's decent on leash and loves to let his nose lead him everywhere.
If you open your heart and home to Rusty, he will love and entertain you forever.

May 19, 2012: Rusty is house trained if walked regularly or crated but requires puppy pads when not and is trained to go on the pads.

He is a relaxed and calm dog who gets along with everyone and just needs to be around people! He is not very active and likes to cuddle in bed with his human.

When surround by many cats, Rusty shows no real interest. He will interact with other dogs but doesn't really play with them. He is OK with them playing around and even on him!

He is calmest, sweetest dog you will ever meet and would be good in a house with seniors, kids, cats, dogs and most of all his furever parent(s).

Please fill out an adoption application if you would like to share your home and love with Rusty!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rusty, a Philadelphia Beagle/Shar Pei dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Beagle/Shar Pei for sale in Philadelphia, or seeking a Beagle/Shar Pei dog from a breeder in Philadelphia.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia 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 Beagle/Shar Pei breeders who help with Beagle/Shar Pei rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Philadelphia paves the way for another one to be saved.
