RUSTY – Precious 3 y/o, 65 lb Pit Mix, Loves Other Dogs!
Reisterstown, MD – Hi everyone! My name is Rusty. I am a 3 y/o brindle pit bull mix searching for my forever family.
My foster mom says I am adorable, and she also tells me I am a great snuggler. I think that’s just because I’ve never met a person I didn’t love! Every time I meet a new person I run right to them and if they let me I wrap my paws around them and give them a big hug. If they don’t then I will try to climb in their lap and snuggle like I do with my foster mom. If that’s not OK then I just hope they give me a belly rub because that is my favorite thing in the whole world.
I love playing with other dogs, and my foster mom says I have a great play bow. My bigger Foster Brother Knight must think so too because we play together all the time.
But I also play with my little Foster Sister Luna. I have to be a gentle with her and also make sure I let her win sometimes.
Oh, yeah, Foster Mom says I should make sure to say that I am neutered, weigh about 65 lbs., and that I need to go to a home with no cats. I really don’t understand why, because I think they are really fun to chase, but she doesn’t think that is a great idea, even when they run.
Other than belly rubs and snuggling my favorite thing during the winter was to eat snow. But now that the snow is gone I like eating ice cubes instead as special treats. I also love toys, but don’t have a lot of stuffed toys left because as soon as I get one I eat the squeakers out and then tear them apart. But I have so very much fun doing it that Foster Mom laughs at me while she watches. I’d be really happy in a home with another dog to play with or at least one who could visit sometimes, and a fenced yard that I could run around in really, really fast, and chase balls and play fetch with my people.
My Foster Mom thinks I am very smart because I am so good at learning new tricks. Since coming to live with her I have learned how to sit, shake, give high-fives and low fives, lie down, roll over and stay.
She does say that I still need a little more work on some of my big boy skills, like housetraining, counter-surfing, and crate training, but she thinks I will learn fast if I have a fenced yard, and if there are treats involved, especially Pup-Peroni Training Treats because they are my favorite. But, she also says I take them very gently and she thinks that is good.
If you choose me as your forever fur-baby I promise to be your best buddy for life, to always love you unconditionally, to give you lots of snuggles and to greet you with a happy smile whenever you come home. Just love me and be good to me and I will try very hard to be everything you want me to be.
Rusty, your new best friend
