Rusty has been through so much in her young life and she sure deserves the best life ever now.  She was found in terrible condition back in May when someone left her tied her to a pole on a city street.  Rusty had bites of unknown origin all over her, as well as an embedded collar and tons of other ailments.  She had to be quarantined for four months due to her bites, and we discovered that Rusty also has mild heart disease, and a condition that is similar to diabetes.  She only requires one medication a day going forward, which our vet will explain to the person that adopts Rusty.  She's about 5 years old and is the most easy-going, loving, sweet, well-behaved dog.  She doesn't let anything at all get her down.  She seems fine with easy going dogs and she adores people of all ages.  To say Rusty deserves a great life is putting it mildly!  Please give our sweet lady the good home she's been dreaming of.  File#29551  5/10/20    Call 609-693-1900 or email: for an appointment to meet Rusty.
