Thank you for allowing me to adopt Rusty. He has settled in beautifully and gets along with Hannah, my old Westie. He looks like a guard dog who is all business, until he sees that the person is allowed in the house or if I stop to talk to someone during our walks. I love this dog! He does know how much he weighs (98 lbs) and he jumps on my lap when I am on the couch. Correction: HIS couch. He is constantly on my side, unless squirrels are nearby. My granddaughters love him very much and he is gentle with them when they visit. Thank you. Getting Rusty was worth the long trip to Illinois.
