MEET DUSTIN…a kissy face, 13 lb, cream colored, 4.5 yr old ShihTzu Poodle, who came from the streets with his homeless mom.  This poor baby has not had an easy life.  His mom didn’t even know how old he was (she knew his birthday 12/21, just wrong year!)  When he arrived, he was a little disoriented but within a few hours, he knew he was safe.  He’s a good eater, very affectionate and wants to be with you all the time.  He is easy to take to brunch or wherever you go…he wants to please and be your guy!  When you first leave him, he doesn’t like it and will bark — but having another dog in the home who he can bond to, along with a loving family and kids over 8 yrs old, makes it easier for him to know he isn’t being abandoned.  Definitely will need a buddy — human and canine!

Dustin is good on a leash but definitely could use some training!  He will bark at people and other dogs, so needs to be distracted.  He likes to do his business outside for the most part, but could use practice. His favorite place to do #2 is against a tree or in the bushes!  If he can’t get outside, he will use a pp pad for the most part.   We never guarantee anyone is potty trained, but he is smart and wants to please, so we believe he will be easy to train.

Little Dustin needs a home where his family will be there to reassure him he will always have roof over his head.  Dustin would love a yard, another dog as a companion and of course, you.   So far, he is good with everyone…dogs, people, kids.  Would you allow him to be good with you and your family?

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
