Please contact Jeff Tarpley ( for more information about this pet.Rusty Rusteze is a male rust-colored with white Chihuahua. He is 1.5 years old and he weighs 9 pounds. Rusty is neutered and vaccinated including rabies. He tested heartworm negative and is receiving monthly heartworm prevention. Rusty has a cloudy left eye the result of an old, completely healed and scarred over injury. He likely has no useful vision in that eye but otherwise it is healthy to stay as is. Rusty is ready for adoption after Thursday, July 1. Rusty is a total goofball. He loves to entertain and make silly moves and silly faces. Rusty and three buddies made their way to our rescue, along with three others who went to another rescue…that’s 7 unneutered males chihuahuas from one home. Apparently competition over females in heat resulted in the eye injury. However, minus competition for the ladies, these boys love to run and play together. They also get along with other dogs. Rusty is crate and potty trained (but don’t be slow to the door!). Rusty is awkward about being carried, like he doesn’t know how to be comfortable or it makes him nervous. He also needs work on the leash. Rusty is a happy little guy who would love a playmate…dog or older child perhaps. A fenced yard, even a small one, would be a joy to Rusty too. Adoption fee is $200.
