On May 16, 2010 a absolutely wonderful boy called Rusty came into our home for foster care. Rusty is 9 years old. He had a long trip from Minnesota to here in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Rusty is a perfect-sized golden who has the personality that anyone could possibly want. Has a muzzle with a small white blaze and the beginnings of senior frosted tips and highlights. Just beautiful. He is gentle, loving, sensitive and loves his human(s). We are very lucky to have this little guy in our home and just a darling guy.

Here is what we know to date:

  • Rusty came from a home where he grew up with a home who has 2 children for years
  • Rusty is neutered and current on all vaccinations and front-lined and groomed;
  • Rusty rides just great in a vehicle and very easy to travel with;
  • Totally housetrained and has free roam of the house
  • Is wonderful with the rest of the foster pack which consists of 3 dogs and 3 cats
  • Rusty loves to take a walk and he walks very nice and plenty of energy;
  • Loves his humans and wants to be by you as much as he can (lots of tail wags)
  • Gets along with cats;
  • Gets along great with other dogs
  • No anxieties; does not bark
  • Has a great golden wiggle

Rusty was recently surrendered by a family who no longer had time for him. He is a total delight to have. Rusty does play fetch, and is very active and fit for 9 years old (even vet concurred). Rusty likes to carry around a soft toy (does not chew up), a kong (with peanut butter is great); other hard rubber toys and nyla bones. He really enjoys playing in the back yard fetching a ball or toy, does not bring it back every time yet, but just loves to play.

Again, Rusty is in super good shape and is just beautiful. He has a white chest and a great golden/reddish coat with nice feathering. He did wonderful at the groomer (he does not like to be crated). He was a perfect gentleman at the vet and every one loves him. He is a total lover boy who really is a true companion dog. Rusty is a great family dog. Prior to coming to us in Ragom he was an only dog however, he really enjoys having other dogs around. He is totally fine with our cats. He is really enjoying our yard (fenced) with the crew and playing fetch. What a lovely boy indeed.
