Meet Russett! And we might as well get it out of the way that yes, his name is like russet potatoes… and well maybe it’s because he’s slightly shaped like one 🤷🏻‍♀️

Russett is a cattle dog mix (heavy on the mix) who is six years old. He LOVES people, but he does prefer to be the only canine kid in the home. He was heartworm positive but we got him his treatment and now he’s ready to find his new home! This is what his foster mom says:

“Russett has the same problem a lot of people do – he likes to overindulge sometimes. Russett has been checked by the vet for thyroid issues, but was told he was just overweight and needed weight loss food. Russett thought that was a bit harsh, but he isn’t letting it get him down. Russett is looking for a home who can help him be his best self.”
