Available Dog Ruston, STAR # 1331
Ruston is just under 40 lbs. and approximately 2-3 years old. He was picked up after wandering in Angleton for quite some time. He is a “diamond in the ruff”… Here’s what his foster mom has to say about Rusty. “This will give you an idea of what Rusty is all about. He should be easy to place when the time comes.
Hey Texas, I’m Ruston, or “Rusty”, and my foster Mom says “have a camera ready when I’m around”. She thinks I’m cute, funny, smart, & important for a 3 yr old…..( she saw a movie once with that line in it). I love to play ball, frisbee, tug-of-war, go car riding and when I’m on a walk I’ve learned to “walk on” when there’s another dog behind a fence. I’m not afraid of horses, or cats, I do know to sit on command, I’ll come when called, and I bark if someone tries to take my stuffed toys from me. Just say ‘HEY’ and I’m smilin’.
I’m improving on social skills because Mom didn’t like it when I tried to steal the other dog’s food. She makes me sit before and after a meal and uses some kind of ‘silent standoff’ that works if I misbehave. She uses the same technique when another dog comes on the property so my act doesn’t fool anybody……Goodbyes, or good nights, are sad times, but I’ll crate quietly anyway. I always ‘go potty’ outside, and I don’t jump on people. I’m a ‘good kid’ so fill out an application and come play with me. I promise I’ll let you figure me out.”
Rusty’s foster home is in Cypress. Applications can be found on our website or if you have already applied, simply message this page.
