Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). See Rusty / Video's HomepageGo to our official websiteYou can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.EST. D.O.B: 01/22/2003 More about me: Rusty is a good boy, he has been with us for a while now and would really like to have a forever home and family to call his own. Rusty can sometimes be a bit cautious when meeting new people, but once he knows you he is very loving and loyal. He does well with female dogs and some male dogs are ok too. Rusty is ok with cats and should do fine with some farm animals. We say Rusty is not house broken, but he does not go potty in his kennel area if let out into the play area or walked. Rusty walks very well on a leash. He is very smart and willing to learn so I don’t believe housetraining would be an issue. Rusty would do best in a home with adults & older children. Rusty is active but not hyper he requires some exercise but not as mush as a younger dog. Some play time in a fenced yard or just a nice walk would be enough and the he could be couch potato. If you’re looking for a great dog that is out of the puppy stage and would be loving and very loyal please consider adopting Rusty. If you’re interested in Rusty go to www.olivebranchwv.org and fill out an online application. Someone will get back to you ASAP. You can also come and visit him, or you can call and find out more information. 304-652-1010

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.
