Story
Ryder was found at a construction site by workers. He was skin and bones! Between the skin infection and being starved, he had given up. He's been in a foster home since then and recovered nicely, physically. He does have trust issues that have to be earned. He is fearful of men, and seems to attach to one person. He is getting a long nicely with his fur siblings, but we do not recommend  home with children. He isnt the type of the dog that likes 'hugs' or anyone getting too close to his face, so a home without children is best.  He would be best in a home with other animals. He has done great with cats in his foster home. He is working on crate training, but so far he is not fan! He is a great watch dog and will alert you to someone or something. He is mostly house trained He loves to play ball, run, and learn new commands. A fence yard is preferred  If you would like to make Ryder a part of your family, fill out an application at www.barktownrescue.org    RYDER'S ADOPTION FEE IS $170The shelter software system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of our dogs we are only guessing at the dog's predominant breed or breed mix. We strongly encourage you to select your new pet by looking at each dog's individual personality and pet qualities rather than relying on a breed label that is only our best guess.    Our adoption fees vary from $150 and up.  All of our dogs are up to date on vaccines, heart worm preventives, and flea/tick medication, and will be spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Portions of your adoption fee also help care for the sick and injured animals that we take in.  Thank you for supporting us and considering a rescue dog!    February 21, 2024, 3:44 pm

URGENT Courtesy Post: Owner Surrender/Rehoming- Louisville, KY Meet Rusty! He is a 2 year old Australian Shepherd/Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler mix and weighs 55 lbs.

He hasn’t been tested around cats, dogs, or older children. The owner is surrendering him because he doesn’t do well with young children. He needs to go by 2/18!

This fee will be donated to Australian Shepherds Furever for their assistance in placing Rusty. Owner’s Contact Information: Brenn Monroe at (502) 386-7927 or bpadgett5@gmail.com.

Story
Rusty is a 2 year old mix and he is very loving. He enjoys being with his people and going for walks. He loved to fetch and enjoys chewing on a nice bone. With his breeds, he would do best in a home with older kids (small ones make him anxious) and a big yard. He’s a very loving dog and would benefit from further training to help give him ‘jobs’ since he is such a working dog. He walks well on the leash, staying close to you, but does react at other dogs walking by. He’s very smart, he can be trained to be the dog that you want!
