Are you looking for a fluffy ball of fun? Then Rusty may just be the dog for you!!
Rusty is approximately 6 years old and has sadly spent around half of his life living in a public kill shelter in Romania. He arrived in the UK November 2023.
Rusty was very scared upon his arrival at Oakwood and he quickly showed us that he was not enjoying the company of other dogs so we moved him to be on his own. This is when his personality really started to show and this goofy litte fluff ball appeared, started asking for fusses and making us laugh as he'd bound up and down the corridor with a big grin on his face.
Zac is a cheeky chap with a larger than life personality, he loves nothing more than meeting new friends and is starting to be very people-orientated!
Rusty has never been in a home before and so has no basic training, however, the eagerness is there and with him being quite food onreientated, this should make it easy to engage with him to begin learning the basics.
Rusty doesn't yet know what to do with toys and doesn't know how to walk on a collar on lead. This may take some time but he's very eager so we are hoping to start training in kennels very soon. Some dogs pick this up very quickly, others have a lot of trauma when it comes to any pressure around there neck so may take a little longer. It always a steady process full of positive reinforcement and we have every hope that Rusty will one day be able to go out for walks.
Rusty is a total loveable, goofball that will be an amazing addition to the right home.
