Rusty is about 12 years old, about 50 pounds and is a boxer mix.  He was once a family pet, but he had a knack for escaping the yard.  He is what you would call a senior sweetheart.  He's a pretty happy-go-lucky 'velcro' dog - he doesn’t care what you are doing, as long as he can be near you he's good.  Rusty loves to cuddle with his human, walks, and treats!  He has a very gentle personality and lots of love to share.  He gets along with people and most dogs (especially those close to his size).  He doesn't really care for cats or being left alone for long periods of time because he's the most happy when he's near his human!  Rusty's ideal home is with someone that enjoys spending time at home and wants a calm buddy around the house.  He walks great on a leash, knows basic commands, and never gets into trouble because he prefers to just nap at his humans feet all day!  He just want you nearby, he knows this sounds clingy but he's not clingy - he just really loves you!  Rusty is in a foster home.  For more info please email

Rusty's adoption fee is $200 ($150 during November's Adopt-a-Senior month) and includes spay/neuter, up-to-date vaccines, deworming, a microchip, heartworm test, and heartworm treatment if required.
