Meet Rusty

My name is and I am a very gentle and sweet little cross breed. I can be a bit shy when I first meet people but I am coming out of my shell as I am feeling secure with my carer and her family. Sometimes I can seem to be aloof but its only because I am being cautious but once I know you, I will ask if I can climb into on your lap for a cuddle and a nap.

I enjoy playing with the ball in the yard and having a chat to my carers cats too, only one of them doesn't like me but I am still friendly to her. I am not really much of a barker however if the cats don't want to play I will give a little bark to say 'please go on just a little play' but then I stop once I know they don't want to.

I am not really active like other puppies, I prefer being on the lounge with the kids. My carer has 3 kids from baby to primary age and I love them all. I will have a sleep next to them then get carried around by the 2 year old and play dress ups with the 4 year old. I look after them and they look after me.

I stay really close to my foster family as I don't want to run away, get lost again and end up in the pound.. ever! When the family go out I will just look at them like can I come too....please! Although I don't really like walking on the lead my carer has been helping me get used to the harness and I am slowly starting to be OK on it now.

I like to sleep in my bed at night and don't get up to mischief when everyone's asleep. When my carer goes out I stay in the laundry which I don't have a problem with as long as I have some toys and a comfy bed.

If you would like to meet me. I sure would love a forever home with a gentle and loving family who will keep me safe and look after me for the rest of my days.
