Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:

Rusty is a perky young guy with a very soft red-ticked coat. He is really cute and affectionate, and a great ball dog! He’s playful and very friendly. He has a strong herding drive and needs to have owners who are savvy about herding behavior. He’s quite independent, and needs a bit more leash-work to learn that he’s not the boss! His sweet personality should make training fairly easy.
