Rusty is a 7 year old Australian Cattle Dog mix. She was surrendered to another local shelter due to a family members allergies, and was recently transferred here to us. It was indicated on her surrender form that she loves swimming and chew toys, and does know the commands “sit”, “down”, and “come”.  Rusty would do best in a home with no other dogs. Stop in and meet with her today!
