*Russie is not available for adoption at this time*
When arriving to MN we found Russie has a long list of medical issues. We made the choice to have her live out the rest of her time in her foster home as a part of the Ruff Start Hospice Program.
Hey everyone! My name is Russie.
Russie was turned into the shelter inTX after her owner died. She weighs almost 10 pounds. The family member that turned her in said, "She's really old, maybe 16," so she's a senior, but we're not really sure of her age. Russie is a very sweet girl. She hasn't barked yet since I've had her! Russie likes to sleep and will curl up beside you on the couch. She sleeps through the night in her dog bed. She likes food and will follow you around the kitchen while you cook. She gets along with other dogs, but doesn't play with them. She hasn't paid any attention to my cats. Russie seems to be hard of hearing, probably due to her age. Her little tongue sticks out when she's sleeping...so cute. She's an adorable little girl.
An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal. Once we receive your application, a placement coordinator will be in contact with you as soon as possible.
