Rusty is a very sweet, quiet, older guy who does great with our two big dogs. He also did well with my parent's small dog when he came to visit.  Rusty does tend to get a tad jealous and wants all of your attention, but he is not mean about it. He just kind of stands there until you notice him after you're finished petting everyone else :)  I don't think he has ever been shown much love so now he knows he likes and wants it!  He would also be fine as an only dog. 

He may be older but a lot of positive qualities come with age - low energy, loves to lounge around, easy-going, house trained, neutered, up to date on shots, crate trained and good with other dogs. Rusty  would also be great with older kids - I say older because his back legs aren't as sturdy as they once were so he takes a second to move. 

He is house trained and will use the doggy door.  Rusty sleeps peacefully in his dog bed at night un-crated.  He will sleep in his crate if you make him, but he doesn't make a peep in his dog bed that is in our room. He is also not a morning person :) - he'd rather sleep in. 

He is not a big eater and we are trying to put some weight on him now. He should be around 75 pounds when he fills out. He has a GORGEOUS copper/brown colored shiny coat! 

His back legs have some arthritis and he does struggle a bit to get up and down from laying down, but the good news is he won't jump on anyone or any furniture :)  Rusty does enjoy a short walk around the block to smell everything possible.  He walks just fine and gets around without any assistance.

Rusty is a happy, friendly older guy that just wants to be loved and have some attention every so often in his golden years.  He loves his toys and a good chew bone.  If you're looking for a dog that is low energy, low maintenance, then please consider Rusty.  





The adoption fee includes vaccinations, bordetella, deworming, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip. There is an additional $10.99 fee for Home Again for a lifetime registration of the microchip. If adopting a puppy, the rabies and spay/neuter will be done at the same time by our vet once they are 4 months old and billed to us. It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.
