Arrival Story:
Rusty was our first dog into the family. I was only 7 yrs old when she entered our household. We rescued her from the pound when she was 2 yrs old.... approximately. She was always a highly active girl with plenty of zing and spice. Dad fell in love with her because she would shake hands when we went to visit her.

Rusty was primarily a pet and didn't do any competitive dog sports (although she would have been a star at it!). She was completely ball obsessed and very loving to her family. Unfortunately, she also had some dog-human issues, so wasn't the best dog to take everywhere with you! Despite that we still had a great friendship and time together! RIP my gorgeous girl: Jan 1991 - June 2004. Aged 13.5yrs. Died suddenly caused by a heart attack/stroke. Trim and Fit until your last day.

I've Been On Dogster Since:
January 23rd 2007 More than 9 years!
