My name is Rusty. I came to Dogtown because my family had to move into a flat and they said there is no space for me there. I am now waiting patiently for my forever family to come and adopt me.

Let me tell you about myself. I am a very affectionate boy, I love all the non-energy draining things in life, like being brushed, massaged, cuddled, fed treats and to nap in a shady spot. I am not a fan of hot weather and prefer to stay out of the sun when I can.

I do meet other furkids from time to time but to be honest, I much prefer my own company so my perfect family would be one without other dogs and definitely no cats.

I absolutely love going on walks (unless of course when it’s hot). I enjoy playing with people and will keep you busy with chasing games and ball games.

Sometimes it takes me a while to get trust unfamiliar people but if somebody is willing to just spend a bit of time with me to get me to feel comfortable, well then be great friends. Once we are besties, I promise to love you unconditionally and give you loads of Rusty-love :)

Please come and meet me, I would love to be part of your family.
