Rusty is a big fellow! At 115 lbs and 5 years old, he's a "soft" Shepherd! Eager to please, plays very well with other dogs of all sizes, excellent on leash and in the vehicle, Rusty is one of our favourite guys! He is not choice for a home with children under teenage years, nor are we recommending a cat home (as he does love to chase). Rusty has pannus which requires daily eye drops.
