Meet Rusty, a spunky 3-year-old Maltese Poodle weighing around 14lbs. Rusty is described as energetic, affectionate and totally lovable. He is a quick learner, already having mastered basic commands and walks great on leash. Rusty takes his bathroom breaks like a champ, consistently going potty outside—a true good boy in this regard!
According to his loving foster mother, Rusty is very affectionate and loves to be held, while often falling asleep in your arms.
Rusty’s past life was challenging, thus, he comes with some quirks that are at no fault of his own. Rusty is very fearful of strangers, and responds by barking, growling and lunging. Because of this, it is important that Rusty’s forever family is 100% committed to addressing these behavioral issues consistently with love and lots of patience. Rusty’s foster mother states, “the first few nights were tough. I left him alone for awhile to explore the house, checked in every so often and eventually, he climbed onto my lap, and wrapped his front arms around me and went to sleep.”
