Dusty is a 3 or 4 year old female pit bull terrier. She was attacked by another dog and brought to a veterinary hospital in Lancaster. Her owner couldn’t afford to repair her wounds and she was surrendered to the hospital for treatment and future adoption. During her convalescence it was discovered that she was pregnant and after a few weeks had puppies. Even though Dusty has a very sweet and kind disposition she wasn’t being adopted due to her breed and the fact that she would eventually need surgery to repair her kneecap popping out of it’s groove, better know as luxating patella. Enough money was finally raised to repair her knee and shortly after surgery Shannon heard about her and found out she was up for adoption. After hearing Dusty’s story and seeing her kind disposition Shannon adopted her on the spot.
You will now find Dusty curled up in what we call the “puppy room” in the back where the managers do work on the computer. She greets everyone with a tail wag and gets up to be loved on before she lays back down next to Shannon. She loves everybody but you can tell her true appreciation is for Shannon. Ours is too.
