Rusty was owner relinquished from a family who found him when he was a young teenager roaming the streets of San Diego. We were shocked to hear poor Rusty had been living isolated and alone in the back yard for almost his whole life. Because his previous owner was elderly, she could not go outside to feed him and depended on others to do so.
Rusty is currently living with a wonderful foster family and he has adjusted extremely well! Here is what his foster mother has to say about him: “Rusty has totally come out of his shell and is great with anyone he meets. He is excellent in his crate at night – in fact, I even have to pull him out in the morning. He is great with other dogs of all sizes, as well as cats, and even chickens! Rusty is good on a leash and in the car. He has learned to enjoy couches and cuddles and seem very content. He is an older guy who is really calm, except for right after a bath when he zooms around like a crazy dog (he is not too fond of getting a bath).” Won’t you consider giving this senior boy the love he needs? He deserves to enjoy the many years he has left, full of companionship, love, and peace of mind. If you are interested in adopting this handsome guy, please fill out an online application right away. Don’t wait!
