Age: 4-5 years
NEW: Rusty has been with us for a month now and he has settled in perfectly. He continues to get along with our other two dogs and is just a very happy, playful boy. He is healthy, well-adjusted and confident - and at the same time he is submissive to the alpha dog in the house. When the older dogs get tired of playing, he will quietly entertain himself with toys. Rusty is quite a meticulous nester when he gets ready for a nap. He will walk in circles, kneading the dog bed for a long long time before getting comfortable.
Rusty loves walking on the leash, but he can get rather excitable at the start of a walk. He is a smart boy and I think he would be a brilliant student in obedience classes. He is crate-trained and well-behaved in the car. He enjoys being both inside and outside. He has been one of our easiest dogs due to his friendly and loving nature. For all of these reasons, we highly recommend Rusty as a great addition to any family and we think he would be excellent with children as well.
Earlier: Rusty has only been with us for a few days and he's already proven to be a very lovable dog. We had a houseful when he arrived and he warmed up to everyone right away. He also is getting along with our other two dogs tremendously. We gave Rusty a bath on his first day here and he was very good for that too. He has a happy playful disposition and loves to play with toys, sometimes three at a time! He even barks at himself in the mirror! It might be too soon to tell for sure, but Rusty has kept his crate clean and there have been no accidents in the house. When Bob brought Rusty to us, he reported that Rusty was quiet in the car and that he pottied on the leash. So overall, we have been quite impressed by Rusty and think he would make an easy and happy addition to any household.
Rusty is 4-5yr old male, he is friendly, playful, good with other dogs but was a stray at Louisa Co. Animal Shelter so his history is unknown.
