This charming older gentleman came to us after being dumped at a regional pound when his owner was moving overseas.   He had lived his entire life in the backyard on a chain, so we weren’t sure how he would transition into being an inside dog, but he took it in his stride!

Dusty is a very affectionate boy and will literally shove his head into your lap for pats and cuddles.  Once he’s had enough, he then trots off to do his own thing, happily independent.

He still loves being outside and has a couple of favourite spots in the backyard that he spends the hours in, be it a bed at the back door or a hiphole in the garden.  He is very content to spend his time sunbaking while his family is at work.

Even though this Husky lad is entering his senior years, he’s still very active and loves going for walks.  Given his age, he has started to develop some arthritis which limits his capacity for extended exercise, so his new family needs to be mindful of these limitations (because he will just keep going!)

Dusty loves other dogs and plays in typical Husky bitey-face fashion.  He can be quite bossy and excited when first introduced to new canine friends, but settles down with guidance.  He’d love to have another dog to spend his days with, so long as they were okay with him being in charge.

Dusty is very vocal when he wants something – dinner, walks, car rides, to go outside, to say hello!

Dusty currently lives with primary school-aged children and is very good with them, but wouldn’t be suitable with very young kids due to his ageing joints and penchant for stealing unattended snacks.  He also has a very high prey drive, so will need a home where dogs are the only animals on the property.  Secure, 5 foot high fencing is required.

Dusty is a funny, loveable, easy dog that will make a wonderful addition to a family willing to give an older dog his forever home.

Dusty is not available for interstate adoption and is not suitable for apartments, homes with small yards or rural areas.
