Meet Rusty.  As with his littermates, Rusty is a bit shy but he comes out of his shell pretty quickly looking for attention.  A few treats will win his heart instantly.  Rusty is approximately 7 months old, loves wrestling with his littermates and learning all about the good life.  Unfortunately, we dont have information about Rustys parents, but based on his size, he currently weighs 15 pounds, we think Riggs is a small terrier mix, such as a rat terrier.  We would expect them to be around 25 pounds full grown.   Rusty and his two brothers were malnourished when they came into our care but their loving foster is adding some pounds and seeing their little personalities flourish.  Now that they are healthy and happy, its time to find them loving furever homes.  Playing with toys is new for Rusty but he is loving it.   These fellows love attention from their person and Im sure they will be happy lap dogs.  Rusty is food motivated and a slow feed bowl is needed for this little guy, he loves to woof down his food.  Rustys adopter will need to continue working with him to walk on a leash and teach house manners.  Rusty appears to be timid of cats so we think he would be fine with a feline sibling.    If you are looking for a small, sweet, little guy that will be your loyal friend, then we think youll love our precious boy Rusty.  Rusty is up-to-date on vaccines and chipped.
