Rusty is a neutered male Australian Shepherd born April 7, 2009
and last adopted December 13, 2010.
He is 10 years and 7 months old.
He was bailed out from a crazy tornado, seems afraid and may be sincere to you. I was looking through the shelter I found this poor boy who�d been in the shelter for over a year. So, of course, I am a softie and he had to come home with me instead!!
He is named after my childhood dog, Rusty, who was my best friend, and also for Little Rusty, who was a dog belonging to an older man, Mr. Cole, (grandfather age) when I was a teenager. We used to walk our dogs together.My Rusty used to sleep with my first cat Patches. I think the real Rusty was a cross between Sheltie, Golden Retriever maybe, even though my Dad says he was a Portugese Water Dog, he didn�t look at all like foo�s version. I don�t know for sure, but going from face type, hair and coloring, and size. Who knows, but he was an awesome dog. Welcome home, Rusty!
