A Little Bit About Rusky

No small animalsNo small animals
Best as only dogBest as only dog
"Hello friends, my name is Rusky. The humans tell me that I am a true gentleman (gentledog is technically the more accurate term). I walk like a good boy on the lead and I am extremely well-mannered with my food. I have heard some horror stories about other naughty dogs snatching pizza, cakes and... 'hot dogs' from the humans 😱

I am gentle cuddlebug and I really enjoy belly rubs and massages. The good news is that you can be terrible at massaging but I'll still love it!

Now I am also a true cookie monster - big and tough on the outside but really, I'm a gentle giant on the inside. Speaking of cookies, my absolute favourite treats are truly delicious kangaroo sticks. They are very yummy and I love to chomp on them. Om nom nom...

I must say, despite being a modest 8 years of age, I do still enjoy a cheeky game of hide and seek. I am also highly skilled in the field of toy destruction. If you adopt me, forget about your 10 cent refund because my favourite toy is empty drink bottles.

I love going for car rides and wearing my bandana and taking up most of the space on your couch. I am loyal and will always try to be by my human's side so I'd love to find a home where someone is home more often than not please.

I can be a little scared of new people and it may take a little bit of time to realise you are my future treat giver, driver and personal massage therapist. But after we've become friends, I'll love you very much. I think little humans might be a bit much for me as well.

I am also looking for a home as an only pet please I get a bit funny if I have to compete for all the love an attention. I got to go now, I heard the keys rattle so it's time for a car ride 🚗. I hope my next one is to meet you so you can take me home forever ❤️" - love Rusky.

Note: This dog is currently being cared for in a foster (temporary) home and when adopted, it will free up a spot to help another dog..

My adoption fee includes desexing, health check, microchipping, I am up-to-date with vaccinations and eligible for free lifetime registration.

Adoption Fee: $100
