Adoptable Pet of the Week


Dusty is a six-year-old beauty. He is a long-haired gentle giant with a thick coat of black fur, tufts of hair between his toes, a bobbed tail and yellow eyes. This strapping boy has a great personality and is a lover! He is very playful, people oriented and likes to rub and cuddle and gives sweet little grunts of contentment. This mellow couch potato is looking for a calm home where he can be the love of your life.
