Here's more about Rusty:
This pup is the biggest love bug. Being a little be more on the high-energy side, he would benefit from long daily walks to keep him sufficiently exercised. Rusty would be an awesome running, hiking or fishing companion. He does well with most dogs but does need a slow and steady introduction. Rusty should not be left unsupervised and bored in a fenced yard as he can scale a six-foot fence. He walks well on a leash and enjoys his walks. He would do very well on family outings.
