Russo Specklypants McChunkybutt

Brace yourself for the cuteness that’s about to break your computer screen…and don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Russo Specklypants McChunkybutt was dumped at Dekalb Animal Services last month with his siblings when they were only four weeks old. A great foster home stepped up immediately to take them in and keep them healthy, and Russo was permanently adopted by one of the two amazing women who run Friends of Dekalb Animals (FODA), which rescues and transports homeless animals to the northeast since the southern shelters are overflowing. (As of this posting, Russo and his siblings have all found forever homes!)

Russo is a mystery mix. When I saw his beautiful markings I immediately thought of a Catahoula, but a lot of Russo’s fans are guessing Great Dane, with his giant paws. Only time will tell! He is the ideal puppy – fat and round, with a temperament that’s perfectly balanced between calm and playful. He is yet another testament to all the unique and utterly amazing mixes to be found through rescue!
