I have had Rusev for 2 years and love him dearly. I need to move overseas for 6 months and this is very difficult for me. He is a very affectionate dog who never barks. He is quiet. He was used as a bait dog as a puppy and abused. Therefore, he should go to a home with no animals, and should be known it takes him a bit to trust someone. He must go to a house with a yard and would like to stay on contact to see how he is doing. If for any reason, you ever decided not to keep him, I am requesting that he be returned to me or my friend. Under no circumstances would I ever want him to go back to a shelter or animal control. It would break my heart.
