Rusty is a sweet, gentle soul. He is 3.5 years old and weighs 10.5 pounds. He has a calm, quiet energy level. We rescued this sweet long-haired chihuahua from a high kill facility and do not know much about his previous home life other than he was under-exercised and over-fed (he needs to lose about 3 pounds). Rusty would love walks, card rides, yard time, visiting with folks, naps and couch cuddling. He would do best in a calm home with older children or would be a wonderful loving companion to a caring individual. There's a lot of love and joy from from this great dog and he is ready to share it with his new family.
