Hey there, I’m Rustie. I am a handsome 2-1/2 year old, 18 pound Beagle mix. I get along great with other dogs and I love people! I judge cats on an individual basis and I think squirrels are a bit sketchy - but hey, we all have our quirks, right? I'm shy at first introductions to people and new situations but I do warm up and will become your best buddy - especially if you give me lots of attention. I can be very playful and energetic but also enjoy relaxing on my nice, soft dog bed and chewing on a bone. I tend to be a nervous dog and sudden movements and loud noises scare me. My first impulse is to jump and run so if I am in an unsecure area , it is necessary to have me in a nice, comfy harness and on a leash because I am too precious to lose! I am house broken and well mannered and will go into my crate when needed but enjoy lazing around the house waiting for my family to return.
One more thing -- I'm up to date on my shots and neutered.
Do I sound like a good fit for you? If so, fill out an adoption application today!
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
