My name is Rusty and I came to DogtownSA when unfortunately my previous owners had to move into a flat and had no space for me. Luckily for me my owners were able to find a new place for me to live at called DogtownSA and this has turned out to be a much better place than I could have wished for.
I must say, in the beginning I was rather wary as well as a little suspicious of all the attention I started receiving but soon learnt that this was all part of the care and rehabilitation programme that was to be implemented for me to help me to find my forever family in the future. One of the bestest treats is being taken out for long walks and regularly going to a large play area where I was able to run around off lead, play ball and games with my carer. I also practice and show off my obedience skills that I am learning, as well as going over agility equipment and it is such fun being able to do this and when I do these exercises I get spoilt with yummy treats and cuddles which I am love. There are times as well when I get to meet other furries in the play area and that is also great fun. I just have to remember not to be too excited at first and jump too high for joy so I am learning to take the games a wee bit slower until the other furries get used to my playful ways.
I really do love being at DogtownSA and being treated so well but my dream would be to find my own forever family. We could all go to doggy school together and continue to learn more obedience skills. I promise to make you very proud of me and be your forever special furry. I will be so pleased to lavish all my love and affection on you every single minute of every day.
