Rusty, Rusty, Rusty. As his Foster Mom my heart breaks for him. He is at Beau's house but he is not being a good house guest and as for being on trial, he is failing. He continues to "bully" Beau even though he is 1/2 Beau's size. He will not allow Beau to be near his Mom and Dad and damaged some carpeting in their home by scratching and pulling threads in it. I am surprised that these people are willing to continue to work with him.
I would love to know what is in his mind. Is he angry because he is has been taken from the home he thought was his or happy and loves his people there so much he doesn't want to share them? Is he confused and just acting out the confusion? I just don't know. The professional dog trainer will be there Fri. to work with him. I just wonder if he will make it there till Fri.
I just know that if he can get over his agression and frustration he will have the home all dogs should have. I also know they will have a loving and totaly devoted companion. It's obvious to anyone these people love him already, but they have to consider Beau and his happiness too. He is their baby and he has to be happy in his own home. I just don't know how much they are willing to take.
I miss him. He is so handsome and when he looks up at you he can melt your heart. He's like a bad little boy that you just love with your whole heart and keep praying he will get on track. When I taught PreK I had a number of little boys like that. I could see the struggle inside between wanting to be good yet just not being able to.
If this home doesn't work out for him I will keep him for a few weeks then look for a home with no other pets, a big yard and older kids who can take his rough play. I didn't rescue him for him to be unhappy and will work until he is. I just have high hopes this is the place he will spend the rest of his life. We shall see. No matter the outcome, he is a loved and will not be neglected, abused or abandoned. He is a lucky dog.
