albury wodonga animal rescue


Meet Rusty. Rusty is a very affectionate youngster who loves attention, especially pats from his humans. He is great with kids and often plays along side them.

Rusty is quite friendly with other dogs. He has shown great improvement walking on the lead, has moderate road skills and his foster carer has trained him to sit before crossing.

Rusty is an intelligent dog who will need further socialising and training, although his current obedience level is good.

Rusty is extremely smart and has a range of hidden tricks he will share after he settles in. Rusty has a really good recall and will stop what he’s doing and come. Rusty is able to sit, lay, shake, high five, fetch, drop it. Rusty has been well trained and goes straight into his crate when told and sleeps there happy as can be.

Rusty is a Kelpie; a working dog who requires lots of stimulation and a large yard or property. He will suit an active family or person. He is not a dog to be left alone for long periods in a boring backyard.

Please email your expression of interest to Lorraine.

Best outcomes: For the best possible outcome for each adoption we do prefer that you come to us and meet the dog or puppy in person.
