Rusty is very comfortable being a family dog. He is familiar with dog doors and how to act around people and inside a home. He loves riding in the truck and has become very attached to his person - Mike at this moment. Rusty is scared to death of thunderstorms. He hides and shakes so hard he vibrates. Unhappily he's a little fence climber, so he'll need a good fenced in back yard. He is very good with other dogs. He's calm and quiet. We still can't believe someone didn't move heaven and earth to find him. We do not know his attitude about cats. But with people - wonderful. He is already microchipped. And he has had all vaccines including leptospirosis and canine flu. He'll get neutered in a couple days.
Rusty is an absolute joy. One of those sweet, sweet dogs that you just can't believe was Code Red Critical in an Animal Shelter.

About Our Rescue Group...

Addicus Legacy is based in CT but has volunteers in TX that coordinate saving the dogs there. All dogs are transported from shelters all over the state and fostered in homes. We believe this gives adopters a great insight into the dogs' personalities and traits. We strive to find the very best family/dog match in every situation.
