Rusty 🐶

  • Animal ID#: A320442
  • Dog Name: Rusty
  • Dog Sex: Male
  • Approximate Age: 9 months
  • Rock star alert! This stunning young guy is all about the fun and play! He’s active, adventurous, fun as can be, affectionate and is the life of the party! We suspect he would be OK with children, keeping in mind this boy is active and playful! He participates in shelter playgroups with playful dogs and would love a canine buddy in the home. He’s so fab!!!
  • In foster, he’s just as amazing! His family says, “Rusty is doing well. We had the family over for Christmas and he was great. He LOVES humans. My kids (12,15,18 and 25) adore him! He will be easy for someone to train. He’d love a decent-size yard to romp around in! They just need to understand he’s still a puppy! He walks incredible on a leash. He just wants love! I’ve said this before but I think he loves every human on the planet! I don’t know how someone has not adopted him. He just wants to love and play. He does not have a mean bone in his body. He’s also doing pretty well in his crate. Someone will be very lucky to have him! He’s a good boy!”

Meeting Dogs at the Stockton Shelter

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
