About Me


Rusty was adopted November 2020!

 Rusty is happiest curled up by your side. Like most chows, he bonds  firm and fast to his family, and comes looking for you if you’re not  where he expects you to be. However, unlike chows, he is happy to meet  new people, and most dogs. (He’s not crazy about little yappy ones.) He likes his daily constitutional, and looks suggestively at the front  door each morning. He enjoys car rides, but only if he can stick his  head out the window. He is vigilant in protecting the yard from  squirrels. If you’re looking for a sweet companion, Rusty’s your guy!
