HELLO FURTURE FAMILY - I HAVE DEVELOPED A SLIGHT COUGH AND AM TAKING MEDICATION; NOTHING SERIOUS, JUST AN ISSUE THAT NEEDS TO BE CLEARED BEFORE I CAN MOVE IN WITH YOU. I'LL BE RESUMING MY SEARCH SOON!
Maybe weekly bath with special shampoo - but that may only be a seasonal thing.
Has a heart murmur. No meds needed, but does need to be checked by vet every 6 months and may require meds in the future.
Hi! I’m Rusty, and I promise to be your constant companion - as in I’ll love you more than food, you will never pee alone companion. Even though I was rescued from a shelter after being found as a stray, I have been well loved in the past. I’m house broken, love to go for walks, adore car rides, know that good things come out of drive-thru windows, and will practically jump into my walking harness or any clothes you want me to wear. I pride myself on being gentle and patient. You can pick me up in just about any configuration or no matter what I’m doing, and I’ll go along with it. That may have been why I ended up with rubber bands on my ears. Even though I’m a poodle mix, someone tried to dock my ears and they put the bands really tight around them for a long time. So now my ears look wonky, but I can still hear good. I only growl or bark when I can see someone going by my house outside, or if the neighbor dogs bark first - it would be rude for me not to answer them. I’m about 10 years old, but I am still hearty, playful, and have most all my teeth. I have dry eye and may be starting to have some vision issues, but my nose works perfectly, so that is okay. My favorite thing in the world is for you to sit on the couch or bed or chair and let me curl up for a nap right next to or in your lap. I’ll do that all day if you let me. Also, I simply must sleep in your bed with you, but I’ll be down by your feet, and I sleep through the night. In the morning I will crawl up to say hi and get a pet before going out for my morning duties. Then I will follow you around for the rest of the day and be very worried if we are separated unless there is someone else who I can be with while you are gone. If you are looking for a little buddy (every Skipper needs a Gilligan) here I am!
