Rusty is a 1 yo male mountain cur who was surrendered by his family who had to move and couldn't take him. Rusty is friendly and well-socialized with a medium activity level. Loves to run and play outside, but then settles down quickly in the house. Likes to go for walks, loves to be with people, enjoys being petted and brushed. Great with kids, cats and other dogs. Recommended for children 6 years and older. Good on a leash, rides great in the car. Knows basic commands. Housebroken and crate-trained. No issues such as separation anxiety, destructive chewing or barking. Weighs about 55#, healthy, altered and utd on shots. Here's a note from his foster mom: 'Rusty is a great dog. He's learned how to live in a home well. His obedience training has helped him tremendously in understanding the rules. He and Buster (the dog in the photo with him) are best buds but as all friends they have their spats; they resolve them each by getting noisy and bare teeth and then turn away and go right back to sharing a bone or toy. Rusty is mellow but plays hard when given chance. He is submissive and works well with his commands: sit, down, stay, heel and come. Does enjoy checking the counters for a slice of bread (working on that, just so tempting). He loves to sit behind you and kiss your ear; loves to sit by your feet and put his head in your lap; loves to snuggle and sleep with his human. No issues or aggressions whatsoever. He's submissive and responds well to commands. No resource guarding. He gets along well with dogs of both sexes and plays well with them. Will turn away from another dog if confronted. Has typical puppy yowly growly play contests. Basically, he's good with cats. At this stage of his age he is a little curious about them and does occasionally chase them if they run past him. However, once he's caught up with them he just wants to play with them, stick his nose in their soft fur, and just sit and watch them do their thing. If they slap or hiss at him he does not retaliate. Should be matched with dog-confident cats while he's still in this puppy enthusiastic stage. He will calm down about them as he grows older and more used to being around cats. That being said, I do not allow cat chasing so his training includes correction when he does it even though he is not aggressive toward them. In this household he is taught that cats rule - they get fed first and get their treats before he does. In this manner he learns that they are part of the pack and that they are to be respected as the ruling family members. I think that somebody has hit Rusty in the past because he flinches if I move too fast. He's a little shy at first in new situations but he warms up quickly. He's not an in-your-face dog. He is an easy dog to have around and will make a wonderful companion for an active family.'To adopt please fill out an adoption application.For more information about our adoption procedures and fees, please visit our homepage at Good Dog Rescue.For more information or if your have questions email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
