Rusty is a 5 year old German Shepherd whose Dad passed away and left him as an orphan. Rusty stayed with a neighbor until he was able to be surrendered to us. He is friendly with other dogs but does need to be fed separately and no cats in the home either. But he is such a sweet cuddle bug as well!
