Urgent Placement Needed-Losing His Foster Home Our beloved good boy Rusty, arrived as a stray in October 2022. He was in bad shape with inflamed red, itchy skin where he would bite at the skin because of the discomfort.

Once we got him onto allergy meds, gave him good food and found him a foster home (Dec 2022) he started to really shine. He could finally focus on something other than his itchy skin, where now he focuses on fun with his foster parents! A few walks and romps in a yard and he is ready for a nap. He is recommended to be in a home with kids (13 yrs old+). Rusty is interested in meeting other dogs (low-key). He responds to sit and gives a submissive smile. Rusty likes to meet new people, too and go to Doggy Day Care!

Unfortunately, his foster needs a new home for him because of a lifestyle change and we don’t want to see him come back to the Shelter. Please help Rusty find his forever.
