Rusty – Male, red ACD Mix – 4 years old – DAS Canberra – seeking rescue organisation or ACD experienced handler.

Rusty was unfortunately surrendered to the Canberra Pound as he was too rough with the grandchildren.

He would require a home where he is the only pet (no other dogs or cats).

He has never escaped his yard and is housetrained.

He has not yet been made available for adoption as he is quite shutdown in the kennel environment and reluctant to meet people.  Staff have been taking him on walks and building a bond, however at this stage, the process is still a little slow.

While staff continue to build up his confidence with people, they are looking for a rescue organisation, or a very experienced handler to take him on and work with him longer term.  If you think you can help Rusty, please contact Jackie directly.
