My Details:


Hello, my name is Rusty! I am a 9 months old collie cross and, as you can imagine, full of beans! Are you looking for an adventure buddy, best friend or future dog-sports champion? If so, I’m your guy!

I’m a typical collie and in my ‘teenage’ phase at the moment so can be a sensitive boy and have big feelings about things that are new to me. I would love my new people to be patient and understanding to help me grow in confidence at my own pace and support me using positive training methods. I’m a super smart boy and learn quickly so training with me is super easy!

I’m a true adventure dog and really benefit from getting out and about in nature where I can sniff and explore to my heart’s content, but I’ll need a peaceful home where I can keep working on my ‘off-switch’ and get plenty of rest and relaxation too. I love using my brain and getting my nose working and really enjoy trying out new food puzzles – frozen kongs are a bit hit with me! I would be a brilliant prospect for sports like scentwork or agility and would love a family with lots of time to dedicate to me where we can really be best friends!

I can be worried when left alone as this is new to me, so will need someone around most of the time while I settle in and the ability to build up my independence gradually. I could live with children over 14 and as I’m still working on my dog-to-dog etiquette, I’d like a home with no other pets for now please.

I have been fully health-checked, vaccinated, microchipped and fleaed and wormed, and will leaving Rain Rescue with 4 weeks free PetPlan insurance and a tasty bag of food from Burns, I will be neutered once I’m old enough too. I’m a clever and loveable boy and will make a wonderful family member with the right support! I promise to give lots of love and fun in return!

I have an adoption fee of £350.
