My name is Rusty but there is no trace of RUST in me!!! I really enjoy playing chase, tug of war, sunbathing and going on walks. I am easily excited and will twirl in circles for minutes at a time. My foster parents think it’s hilarious how excited I get when they mention taking me out or when the doorbell rings. I have to admit, I really do LOVE meeting new people and being outside. Although I’m easily excited I also like to take naps near my foster parents after some play sessions. I've been told my photos make me look like a big guy but I'm only 21 pounds the perfect size for just about any family!

I get along well with my foster sister and other neighborhood dogs. On walks I’ve met children of all ages. I am an older guy so I can be independent and confident but I definitely know how to get your attention and will demand that my cuddle needs are met. I do not require a lot of exercise and I'm house trained. Bonus: If you are over the age of 50, the adoption fee is waived as part of our Boomers' Buddies program. If you would like to meet me please feel free to contact my foster family at sheree0909@gmail.com.
