Rusty’s Available Story
Hello, my name is Rusty (#2194). I’m a handsome 8 year old boy that has been reborn. Thanks to my foster family, I’ve got a new trim figure and a new lease on life. My former family gave me up to move to a small apartment. I miss the children but am doing fine as a companion to a childless couple. I love going to the Dog Park and playing fetch. Also, I’ve become quite the hiking/jogging companion. When I swim, which I love, I can get a little stiff in the ankles, but my hips are fine…the vet said so.The vet also said that I should be regularly treated for fleas because as typical to my breed, I have sensitive skin. If kept flea-free and fed a grai- free diet, I should be itch free and keep my beautiful rich coat.
At home, I’m a laid back dude that likes laying around and goofing off, and yes, I do very well when I’m left alone. I will bark at anyone who comes to the door but I would never bite…not human, dog or cat. I’m a lover not a fighter. I am eager to please in all things. I know my basic commands and am house-broken and I don’t dig or chew. I am always ready to be petted but never demanding.
So come on and give an old guy a chance for a forever home. I promise that I will bring smiles and lots of love.
