A letter from Rusty:
Hello! I'm Rusty! Yes, that's my name... I'm not saying I'm actually rusty. I think of myself as a compact shepherd. I have enormous shepherd ears and the shepherd coloring, but I'm fun size! I am especially proud of my cute curly tail and how fast it can wag. I love to tell stories and talk about my day with the humans when they sit with me. I really love it when they respond to me, that way I know they're listening. Sometimes they even respond with cheese! It's awesome! Back in July, I came from a hoarding situation with over 50 dogs, so I never received the socialization I needed. Because of this, new people can scare me a little. I really want to open up and be myself around them, but I just don't know how yet. It's frustrating to me because I have so much potential and I have a super fun personality. I want everyone to see that! I just need a foster parent who has the patience to help me shine. I do request that this person has a fenced in back yard. That way, if the occasion arises, I can successfully perform my zoomies. I also prefer for all the humans to be over 12 years old. Please reach out to the foster department if you want to help me become the brave, fun size doggy I dream of being!

SPECIAL NOTE: While I am not yet available for adoption, I am available for foster-to-adopt. Email foster@spca.org for more info!
