#5682 Rustie

Small-size, Male, Adult Beagle,

Hey there, I’m Rustie. I am a handsome 2-1/2 year old, 18 pound Beagle mix. I get along great with other dogs and I love people! I judge cats on an individual basis and I think squirrels are a bit sketchy - but hey, we all have our quirks, right? I'm shy at first introductions to people and new situations but I do warm up and will become your best buddy - especially if you give me lots of attention. I can be very playful and energetic but also enjoy relaxing on my nice, soft dog bed and chewing on a bone. I tend to be a nervous dog and sudden movements and loud noises scare me. My first impulse is to jump and run so if I am in an unsecure area , it is necessary to have me in a nice, comfy harness and on a leash because I am too precious to lose! I am house broken and well mannered and will go into my crate when needed but enjoy lazing around the house waiting for my family to return.

One more thing -- I'm up to date on my shots and neutered.

Do I sound like a good fit for you? If so, fill out an adoption application today!

Rustie is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has been neutered. He has special needs. Rustie is currently being fostered in King William, VA.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Ashland.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
