Meet Russ

My name is Russ and I am just 5 years old and weigh just 15.8 pounds. I am proud of my weight as I was very thin when I came into rescue and I have been given such good food to eat.

My foster mommy says I am such a sweet boy and although I live with other sweet doggies right now, I am a bit timid around them, so I would truly love a home where I would be your only boy and be able to get all the love and attention. I am not mean to other dogs, I just get scared easily around them, as I do around toys unless they are quiet and won’t make noises at me. I have my own blanket that makes me happy and keeps me secure, and yesterday I brought my toy to foster mommy to play with me.

I love being patted and reassured, this is something I never had before so I want to be sure I have lots of it.

I love to cuddle and run and jump and if you are interested in agility, you know what, I think I would excel at that. I am learning all my commands and even when I am told "enough" when I bark I will stop. I love men and women equally,

I need a family who will be devoted to me and let me reach my full potential. Oh but don’t leave the front door open or the gate as I will run like the wind and when I am on the run I can’t hear, so always keep me safe.


I am pretty well housebroken, but if I do have an accident I do get upset and try not to let it happen again, I like being a clean boy. I so want a family of my own, as I have never had one and I will love you forever and be so good for you and fill your house with joy.
