RUSTY's Story...
Meet the very handsome boy we call Rusty! He is a 6-7 year old, male, Bloodhound. Rusty is a very special boy to all of our staff. Once you read his story, you’ll understand why…

He was brought to our shelter after being confiscated by the SPCA. While his owner was awaiting trial, Rusty remained at our shelter. It took TWO YEARS for the outcome to be decided. After what seemed like an eternity, we received the great news that Rusty was able to be adopted. We were so happy for him! Our happiness was shorted lived however and quickly turned to disappointment when Rusty tested positive for heartworms. His hope for a new home had to be put on hold once again while he underwent treatment. Rusty was a trooper and kept his spirits high during the following weeks and he is now heartworm free!

Because he was confined to a kennel for over 2 years, Rusty will need an extra special family that will give him time, patience and a lot love as he transitions from living life in a kennel back to living in a home. He will probably need some help with house breaking and walking on a leash. But there’s one thing that we can assure you of, Rusty is one extremely courageous dog that is full of life and has a heart full of love (and very food motivated). The family that adopts Rusty will be rewarded with a lifetime of happiness and devotion!

Rusty will always hold a special place in our hearts and although we will miss his beautiful bark every morning, we know he’s ready to close this chapter of his life and begin a new one with his new forever family. Please contact us today if you would like to make this incredible guy the newest member to your family!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

RUSTY, a Clayton Bloodhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Bloodhound for sale in Clayton, or seeking a Bloodhound dog from a breeder in Clayton.

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