- Rusty is a 5 year, 8 mo. old Labrador Retriever & Mixed in Grand Junction , CO
Rusty is a mamma lover. She can be protective of me at times when on leash and approached by another dog coming toward us. She loves to play ball if you have a treat. ;) Rusty takes warming up when meeting other dogs as she is picky as to which dogs she makes friends with and plays with. Although Rusty does well at doggy daycare! She normally makes friends with the smaller dogs her size. Rusty has never been in an aggressive fight, just gives ques when she feels uncomfortable.

- Weight: 19lbs
- Breed: Labrador Retriever & Mixed
- Tracking Chip: Yes

- Gets along with children: Yes
Rusty has done well with all children. She has been around them only a handful of times so I always have the child be calm and slow to approach. No issues of aggression, barking, or biting a child.
- Gets along with other dogs: Yes
Rusty is picky on the dogs she gets along with. She is timid and shows her bubble at first. It is best to have a meet and greet first, if she will be around other dogs. She does well at doggy daycare, not so well at small dog parks, or when she is on leash- this may be a protective thing around me and I think she feels vulnerable on leash. Rusty has never been in a all out attack, just gives ques she is not comfortable.
- Gets along with cats: Yes
She is working on getting along with cats. We live with a cat now. She does well inside. If the cat is an outside cat she will still chase it if she is unaware and sees it running. Instincts. Rusty has never fought with or injured a cat. Just chases them and then is told by the cat who is boss!
