Rusty is a 5-year-old, brown, 60 lb. shepherd mix. He is a great medium size dog! We rescued him from a shelter in Feb. of 2013. We can provide paperwork. Some of his paperwork classifies him as a red dog (whatever that is) mix yet many have said he is a German Shepard/Boxer mix. He is a loving dog who loves to always be by your side and is the true definition of man's best friend. He has energy when you want to play or can sleep by your side all day. He loves to go for walks and chase squirrels. He is an awesome guard dog who barks to let you know you have visitors or mail/UPS deliveries. He was attacked by an aggressive dog in the past which causes him to not be good when interacting with some other dogs or fast moving things such as small kids who are unpredictable. He loves to run and play off leash, with other non-aggressive dogs. He is a very food motivated dog which is great for training but knows he cannot have food unless it is given to him; so, one does not have to worry when they leave food sitting out or him getting into trash (we have left food on the ottoman all day and he doesn’t eat it). Rusty is housebroken and use to being home alone during the week for 9-10 hours while we are at work. He is a people lover and is not happy if you are home and he is caged or locked in a room. He is up to date on his shots. He would be great with a family who has older children, a home with no kids, or for a single person. Rusty is a very smart and emotionally intelligent dog who knows command words and when an owner might need kisses. He would thrive in any household that is calm and loving.
