Say 'ello and cheerio to sweet senior, Rusty! This 5lb lovebug (also known as a Yorkshire Terrier) has missed out on the care he really needed in his 12.5 years, but is happily settling in as one of Underdogs most cuddly cases. 

With the help of his foster momma, this little guy has been on the mend and is on the road to feeling so much better than when he first arrived. He's working hard to put on some much needed weight, much more comfy now that he is on medication for his arthritis, and feeling like a new man after having his rotten teeth removed. 

He's a laid-back English gent who loves to explore the yard and sunbathe who is ready to be someone's miniature companion! Rusty is tolerant of younger dogs but prefers to spend his time with a more mature crowd (best in a home with either no children or older children that are experienced in respecting a dog's need for space). If you have a Rusty-sized space on your lap, he's ready to fill it!

If you're interested in adopting Rusty, please fill out an adoption application here:

Underdogs is a small volunteer-based animal rescue and we unfortunately do not have the resources to respond to phone and email inquires about our adoptable animals at this time. If you're interested in learning more or setting up a meeting with one of our animals, please complete an adoption application first. It may take up to two weeks for application review and one of our coordinators will reach out to you as soon as we are through the intitial review process. We appreciate your patience and understanding! Thank you! 

Our Underdogs senior dog adoption fee is $175.
