Hi, my name is Dustin! Well, that is the name they gave me at HART because they said it meant brave and they could tell that I have not had the best life until HART came along. But things are sure looking up now! I was not getting much to eat before and now I get a lot of food every day. I am still very skinny (maybe just 30 pounds), but I know that will change given all the good food I am getting. HART is working on getting me into a foster home but I am so happy to be somewhere where it is warm and dry and people notice me. The nice lady at the kennel tells me that I am her favorite. She says to me many times a day "Dustin you are a nice little fella". She praised me because I am clean in my run, and I don't tear up my bedding or take it outside of my run. I don't want to be a tattle tale but a few of the dogs take their clean bedding out of their runs - I don't see the point in that! But I am a gentleman and I will not name names! I also use the "bathroom" outside of my run which of course is a very good thing. I don't pull much on the leash and I love to lay in the sun when it is nice outside. I also like affection (doesn't everybody? ) but I won't bother you about it all the time. I am happy to wait for pets and love when it is a good time for you. I guess I really am a "nice little fella." I would love to meet you (I like people a lot), so please let me know if you would like to meet me too. Remember my name is Dustin because they think I am very brave.
