Hello everyone! My name is Rusty. I am a 5-year old, 12-pound male Shih Tzu. I am just adorable and oh so sweet! I am friendly with men, women, gentle children, other dogs and cats! Hey that is pretty awesome isn't it? I am a very calm little guy so I do not need an active home.

Now before you go thinking I am perfect...I am still working on my housetraining and have to wear a belly band when roaming around the house. So I will do best with a fenced yard. I also need someone who will be home part of the day to help me get the hang of this and will be patient and tolerant of my not being housetrained. I do not like crates and pretty much insist that I get to sleep in bed with you otherwise I will bark and carry on. I am a great snuggle buddy in bed and promise I will be quiet as a mouse! I will be okay gated in a room when you have to go out to run errands.

If you think you have the right home for me, please get in touch with my friends at SBRET. I have been neutered, microchipped, up-to-date on all vaccines and heartworm preventatives. My adoption fee is $175.
