Dusty is a 2.5 year-old Beagle mix male with a slightly longer coat who found himself homeless at a rural county shelter. He came to Canine Lifeline so he would have more time to find the perfect new home. Dusty is an energetic little guy who gets along well with other dogs but would likely do fine as an only dog in his new home provided his family would have plenty of time to spend with him and the ability to give him a lot of exercise. Dusty loves to eat and really looks forward to mealtime each day. His food motivation should make him easy to train using positive reinforcement methods. Dusty is sweet and affectionate but will need some obedience training and work on the leash as it seems that no one has spent much time teaching him basic canine skills. With some time and effort, this little guy is going to be a great companion for years to come. Dusty was adopted but recently returned to us because he was not friendly with visitors to his home. He also may be a bit too interested in kitties so would do best in a cat-free environment. We think he would do best in a home with another dog to show him the ropes as well as an aboveground fenced yard for him to play in. He was crated in his previous home and did fine with that. As long as he got out on a regular schedule, he was good at a housetraining routine. Dusty weighs about 34 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Dusty. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 48 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
