Note from Website Admin: Dusty crossed the rainbow bridge in 2016. However our feral program would not be what it is today without his influence. I am temporarily leaving his page active in remembrance of our original feral protector and in honor of all the dogs we have saved with his help. -Chelsea
Dusty came to The Devoted Barn as part of a severe hoarding case. He has been at The Devoted Barn since the very beginning. Dusty has come a long way since we got him but he is still learning to trust people.
Dusty has a very important job here at the barn. He is the guardian of the feral dogs; their protector. All of the other feral dogs turn to Dusty for security and comfort. They just seem drawn to him. At any one time you will find up to 7 other feral dogs snuggling with Dusty in his crate. His presence alone brings the other dogs out of their shells and makes them feel secure enough to interact with humans.
