About me

My name is Rusty and i arrived at Pawprints Dog Rescue as an unclaimed stray from the pound.

I am only a baby at around 10 months old and have arrived with no training at all.  I am not toilet trained but am very eager to learn so my new family need to go back to basics with me to help me learn all the things most dogs get taught as a puppy.  I would also love to learn lots of other commands like sit, down and stay.  I am very excited when i am around other dogs so i need some further socialisation to help me to understand whats good doggy behaviour.  I can live with children but i do jump up and am still mouthing a little so i would prefer them to be older so i don’t accidentally hurt them in play.

Home requirements

I am looking for a home with humans around most of the time as this will help with my toilet training.  As i know no commands i am looking for a family that have the time to carry out training with me and would benefit from joining in on some training classes.  I am still only 10mths old so i am not sure how big i am going to get but my new home needs to be prepared for a medium to large sized dog.

I will eventually need to have a home where i have 2 good walks around 45mins each per day but this will need building up so my new family will need to find other ways to keep me entertained mentally so i do not get bored otherwise i may find some interesting things to chew on.  I have no recall so i will need a enclosed garden with fences around 6ft and be exercised on lead only or in a secure area only until i have learnt how to come back on command.

All animals at Pawprints Dog Rescue are:

  • Vaccinated, microchipped, wormed, flea’d and neutered OR adopted under a neutering contract
  • Come with 4 weeks free PetPlan insurance
  • Each dog is individually assessed to determine which type of home they require
