And now a few words from me:
Hello, my name is Rusty. I came back into foster care due to no fault of my own. You see my owner died. I really thought I had found my forever home and was so disappointed when it didn’t work out. At my new foster home I love to lay on the couch with my 2 furry foster sisters, but do enjoy the outdoors as well. Going on walks is such a big adventure, I love to break into a gallop every once in awhile, but I also like to take my time and smell the roses. Car rides are one of my favorite things to do, well maybe other then belly rubs. I am a pretty easy going guy who’s needs are very easily met. I just want to find my forever home to spend my retirement years in.
And now a few words from my foster family:
Good old Rusty! This guy is so laid back and such a sweetheart. He loves food of any sort, so his diet needs to be monitored. He is so happy to meet a cat or another dog to be friends with. Rusty would do well on his own or with another pet in the house. He does not bark, so is well suited for an apartment or condo. Rusty meets all animals and humans on his walks very well, he shows no signs of fear. Rusty doesn’t like sudden movements, as he has the start of cataracs and doesn’t see as well as he used to. Kept on a regular bathroom schedule Rusty does very well. He sleeps on the couch or in a bed on the floor at night. Rusty just needs a home and family to call his own.
