As a puppy, he was hit by a car on the highway. The driver didn't even stop. Rusty crawled to the side of the road, dragging his injured leg. Pain, hurt, and confusion filled his heart. At the same time, a text message about the incident reached the shelter, and a volunteer rushed to help the little guy. Fractured with displacement, surgery and recovery. Puppies recover faster, but Rusty grew up during his treatment.

Now he's a young man full of strength, healthy and eagerly awaiting his human. Rusty is outgoing and affectionate and gets along well with everyone. He's learning commands and showing patience and calm. He loves to be hugged and is always ready to play. He will make a reliable and loyal companion; the key is to have someone to give his loyalty to.
