Story
ABOUT RUSTY Looking for a loyal, lovable Shepherd? Meet Rusty! This handsome boy is a 5-year-old Shepherd mix that LOVES people! Rusty came to HAP when he was found as a stray. We attempted to contact his owners, but unfortunately, they did not come for him. Despite being in a new place, Rusty quickly made friends with our staff and volunteers. In typical shepherd nature, he is very talented at holding a conversation and letting you know what's on his mind. He'll do anything for a game a fetch, and yes, he brings the ball back every time! He's a very smart boy and motivated to learn more tricks. Rusty is leash-trained, house-trained, and knows basic commands. If you're looking for a big boy, with an even bigger heart, then come meet Rusty! While he's only been with us for a short time, he has been out in our Doggy Day Out program nearly a dozen volunteers already! Here's what our volunteers have to say about him: "We had a wonderful day with Rusty yesterday. We took him to visit my parents and he really warms up to people quickly. He has such a pleasant demeanor. We proceeded to take him to the pet store to pick out a treat. He was so well behaved, didn't grab anything and sniffed around the store. We came home to play fetch then relaxed for a bit. He is extremely well trained and terrific with commands. Then we took him for a nice walk. He doesn't pull at all and listens to commands while walking. Rusty would make an excellent addition to any family. He is very loyal to people, extremely gentle and loves to play. This was our second time taking Rusty out and he is just a great dog." - Beth "My friend and I got to take Rusty out today and he is just the sweetest boy! We went for a long walk, and then headed home to play in the backyard. Rusty walked amazing on leash, didn't pull once and stayed right by my side! When we got back, he spent over an hour loving the chance to run around and play fetch. He's really good at always bringing the ball back, he quickly realized if he dropped it we'd throw it again. When we were headed back, he zonked out in the car after all the running around and barely woke up for his pup cup. He was such a sweet boy to spend the day with!" - Kristiana **Rusty is seeking a home as the only pet! If you are interested in adopting Rusty, please submit an adoption questionnaire! Our adoption process is on a first-come, best-match basis and we are not able to hold animals. If you are interested in this specific dog but it ends up not being the best fit upon meeting, our adoption counselors will work with you to help find a match! All household members, including children and other dogs, must come along for the meeting to make sure it's a good fit. If a match is made, we encourage same-day adoptions! Our adoption fees include the animals' spay/neuter, microchip, age-appropriate vaccinations and preventatives, fecal testing, heartworm testing, and a small bag of food to get you started.

Please contact Marilyn at 856-275-6905 for more information about this pet.  This dog is located in Newark, DE. Visit us on the web at https://fur-everpaws.com/fur-ever-paws-adoption-application/ to submit an application. Please contact the foster directly at 856-275-6905 (call or text) or via email at Fureverpawsdogrescue@gmail.com&#226&#128&#139 Fur Ever Paws Dog Rescue is a small no kill rescue operating in the Delaware/Maryland area. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit that rescues and places homeless, neglected or abused dogs from high-kill shelters in the south into loving, responsible committed and permanent homes. We feel our comprehensive adoption process which includes not only taking the time to match the dog to the prospective new owner but helping to educate that owner in responsible dog care, allows us to find the best homes for our little buddies and the best companions for you! Each week we use USDA certified transports to bring dogs from high-kill shelters in the south to our fosters where they all receive the appropriate medical care and are placed in nurturing loving homes while they await placement in their forever homes. Interested in one of our dogs? Great! Now that you've seen them here, you'll need to go to our website where you'll find our list of adoptable dogs (updated every week). Then, it's just a simple process of finding a dog you're interested in and filling out an application on our site. Once we receive your application, whoever is fostering that particular dog will contact you and do a short over the phone interview to complete your application process. If everything works out, they will set an appointment with you so come out and "visit" with the dog you're interested in (we want to make sure that not only are you a good fit for the dog but that the dog will fit with you). If everything works out, you'll be able to take rover (or spot, or jax) home with you that very day. A couple of things you should know: We can't hold dogs over the phone or via email. Adoption fees vary based on breed. All of our dogs have been vet checked and dewormed (if possible due to age, additional treatment may be needed). We provide a spay or neuter voucher to all of our adopters. &#226&#128&#139 May 23, 2024, 2:03 pm
