MEET RUSTY….and don’t let that sly little smile fool you for a moment!!  This absolutely adorable, petite @ 8 lbs, red/white, 2 yr old Shih Tzu/Terrier pup is a live wire!  Rusty came from the Moreno Valley Shelter after being hit by a car 🙁  His injuries were superficial, and he is AOK….!!  Rusty is all puppy!  He loves to rule the roost and lets everyone know that he is the boss!  He isn’t afraid of dogs — big or small — cats or kids! Loves them all!  When he came out of the shelter, he had a serious URI, so he showed his “calmer” side.  Once he felt better…he was here, there and everywhere!   As you can see, he loves toys!  He needs to go to a home where there is another small, young, playful dog.   He seems to be potty trained, but we never guarantee!  Rusty is a great little guy who could fit in your pocket!  He’d love to be your man/boy/forever friend!  Do you have a place in your heart for Rusty?


Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
