Rusty ~ in Southern California

Looking for a Home

Rusty My name is Rusty and my story is one of neglect. I was in a shelter and had demodex mange all over my body. A Silky Rescue volunteer got me out of the shelter and took me to a wonderful vet who kept me for a month and got me all better. I had crusts all over my body and I looked very bad but, as you can see, I'm a handsome fella now. Are you wondering what breed I am? Well, that's stumped my foster mom, too, so she says that I'm a designer dog.......I can be anything you want me to be. I might be part silky because my hair is growing long and I'm about the right color but my legs are on the longer side.

I'm between 1 and 2 years old and am very sweet and gentle. I like to sit on a lap or cuddle up beside you. I get along with other dogs and I don't bother the resident cat. I play very nicely with the puppies and older silky's at my foster home and would enjoy having a playmate at my new home. I've never been around children at my foster home but my foster mom believes I would be fine with children eight years or older if they are gentle.

I'm crate trained and use the doggie door but I will need supervision in the house training department...but I'm a fast learner.

Rusty is neutered and up to date on his shots. His adoption fee will be $200.

Preference will be given to local or in state applicants. Rusty's new family will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to provide proper care for him.

Rusty's an expert napper!
