Meet Rusty!

Rusty is an eleven year old neutered dog that has lived his whole life with back yard breeders and puppy millers, living outside in a pen where he was used for breeding. Due to kennel reduction he spent the last 3 months living in a cage at an animal shelter. Rusty needs a guardian angel to come into his life and give him a loving and secure home for his remaining years.

Rusty is coming out of his shell in his foster home and is making great strides. He loves to sit on your lap and he is a very nice boy. Weighs about 15 pounds.

Rusty Before Grooming

Rusty is developing cataracts and needs a special, loving home. Please open your heart and home to Rusty. He deserves it. Rusty is located in Marion, OH.

If you would like more information, contact Margie Simon. If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.

Rusty has been Adopted!

From Rusty's new mom (she also adotped Rudy)


We made it through our first night last night and everything was fine. I had put a playpen in my bedroom and put the doges in there and they went right to sleep with the rest of us, I have just gotten up and taken them out and no messes in the playpen. I'm so excited that things are going this well. Rudy is still very shy with me and Rusty is a little also but not as bad, but Randy, I don't know what that man has but they both go to him and love him. My two small pups are doing well also and they are all interacting fine. I'll keep you updated in a couple of days and try to get some pics to you.

Another lovely night w/ all my pets, they are wonderful and fitting in quite nicely.... when we first brought the two of them home, the would not even take a treat out of our hands, they would run anytime we put a hand out. Now they will take treats our of our hands, lay on the couch or recliner with us, and are pretty much coming when called. The housebreaking factor is doing fine except for Rudy's little accident last night, other then that, they are doing great. Thanks again for the opportunity to make a difference in these dogs lives. We are one big happy family.

Randy, Becky, Dustin & Kayla
