Rusti is a sweet and gentle boy that makes a great cuddle buddy. His favorite activities include stretching out on a comfortable couch or bed and sniffing around the yard. Rusti loves to be praised and encouraged and is constantly seeking attention. This handsome boy is a lower-energy dog that will follow his people around the house and happily wags his tail. Though he takes a little while to warm up to people, he loves big once he knows he is safe and loved. He is such a great 5 year old pup that loves his crate and finds it a comfortable den where he has his own space. He plays really well with other dogs... even those that can be a bit much at times. He can play fetch and is learning how to play with toys. Rusti is fully house trained and is generally very well-mannered. We believe Rusti to be a 55 pound Viszla-Labrador Retriever mix that loves people food and is starting to learn dog food is good too and much more healthy for him. Loud noises and chaotic situations can be a bit much for him and where we feel he would benefit greatly from having another dog in the house... young kids are too much for him and it is clear he is uncomfortable with all their running and acting all silly. Rusti is a great dog that is looking for someone to give him a little love and encouragement and is looking to be someone's best friend for the rest of his life.
