- Bernese Mt. Dog Mix
- 10 years
Howdy y’all, my name is Rusty, and I’m an appropriately-named 10 year old Burnese Mountain dog mix. I’m an absolutely beautiful big boy with an even bigger heart. Given my age and my size, it’s no surprise that I have some arthritis I take some medicine for, but I don’t let that stop me from enjoying my day! I would love to go on shorter walks around the neighborhood, especially if I get to meet new friends. I get along with pretty much everyone I meet. I really don’t like being alone too long, so an family with an animal or human companion to keep me company most of the day would be my ideal home! I would most enjoy an adult-only home, as I can be a little too "old man grumpy" sometimes for little kids. I am house-trained, but when transitioning to a new home, I may have some accidents. I don’t need a bunch of toys; I don’t show a lot of interest in them, but I love to trot around the yard with my friends outside and go for little walks. I’m a big guy though, so I tire quicker. When I get excited and playful, I’ll make it known with a couple of my deep, loud barks! Otherwise, I am a quiet, gentle giant who finds joy in the little things, like lying at the feet of my people, getting scratches, and you can’t forget a nice, soothing brushing. Ahhh, that is the life. I hope it can be my new life with you!
