Pet of the Week: June 21, 2017

Rusty is The Current's pet of the week for June 21, 2017.

Meet Rusty! This 10-year-old is actually nothing like his name — there’s no rust in this little guy! Rusty enjoys playing chase, tug of war, sunbathing and going on walks. He is easily excited and will twirl in circles for minutes at a time. He absolutely loves meeting new people and being outside, and he gets along well with other dogs.

All of that excitement leads to his second-favorite pastime: naps (especially near his people). At 21 pounds, Rusty is a perfect size for just about any family. Because he’s a senior citizen, he can be independent and confident. He knows how to get your attention and will demand that his cuddle needs are met.

Bonus: If you are over the age of 50, the adoption fee is waived as part of our Boomers’ Buddies program.
