Dusty is a 12 month catahoula x heading dog recently rescued by Humane Society. 

He is a unique coloured boy with a gentle loving nature, but he needs an experienced owner to continue his training & provide reassuring security. He is house trained & only barks in play or if needing to toilet. 

He has been well socialised at Doggie Daycare but is in the teenage stage so still needs guidance and gentle but firm reminders. He would fit into a home with other dogs of a similar size, his ideal home being with large dog experienced owners who have the time for exercise & stimulation. 

He would be ideal for obedience & agility or any kind of "on the job" activities & a property with some space for him to move around. 

If children in the family, they must be over 9 years. He seems fine with farm animals and chickens under supervision. 

Dusty has been vet-checked, vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and is currently registered so we will ask for a minimum DONATION of $200 towards these costs. 

If you are interested in adopting him, you will need a securely fenced property to keep him contained which a volunteer from the Society will check prior to him being released to his new home. 

You will also need to meet him at our foster home in Waitoki, 10 minutes from Silverdale, as we WILL NOT send dogs anywhere and must meet all prospective new owners. 

Our aim is to adopt each dog to a compatible owner. The Humane Society reserves the right to decline any dog adoption application at its discretion. 

Please phone or email for more information.
