Rusty and Rosie in Lebanon, IN

Rusty and Rosie came into rescue together. These pups can go to a new home together or can go to different homes. Rosie is Rusty’s mother. She is 19 months old (born 2/24/22) and her son Rusty is 10 months old (born 1/21/23). 

Rusty is full of energy and being so young, he’s all puppy. He has his favorite Stuffed toys that will squeak. He loves squeaking them. 

His favorite place to lay is either next to or on his foster mom’s lap. He is very loving and sweet with her.

His mother, Rosie, has very much the same temperament. She loves being as close to her human as possible.

Rusty and Rosie love running in the fenced yard. The think their main responsibility is to guard the bird feeders. They get so excited when they chase the birds away and then run back to get into position.

They both were well cared for in their previous home. Rusty has been neutered and Rosie has been spayed. They are up to date on all vaccines. We’ve been working on house breaking. They are doing fairly well and are let out to potty every 2 or 3 hours.

They prefer being in the same room with their foster mom. If not, Rosie can get vocal. They do well on leads and aren’t fond of being in crates. Rusty is doing better in a crate and is fed in his crate. They have not been around children, but given a proper introduction and time with them, they should do well.

Rosie and Rusty are attached to each other, but also function independently. Rusty will growl a little when one of the other dogs in his foster home tries to take his toys. That said, both Rosie and Rusty play well with the other dogs in the home. They are fun, affectionate, sweet Cavaliers.
