Rusty in Charlottesville, VA

Hi, my name is Rusty! I like toys, meeting new people and long walks in the park. I am an energetic, 5 month old Blenheim born October 16th. My first family took really good care of me, but they were older and I was a bit too rambunctious for them, so they decided rescue would be the best option for me to find the perfect home. I am looking for an active family with plenty of time and patience to help me grow into a perfect gentleman. 


I am healthy, up to date on all my vaccinations and flea/tick and heartworm preventives. I do have leaky eyes, which the vet called blocked tear ducts. This is just cosmetic, but my face should be cleaned daily to prevent infections. 

I'm really excited to attend puppy class, because I am eager to learn and meet new friends. I already know how to sit, lay down and stay. I need work with leash walking because I tend to get tangled. 

My adult teeth are coming in, so my favorite thing right now is chewing! My foster mom says I'm not your typical Cavalier because I'm not food motivated. I do like treats but I get easily distracted when eating breakfast or dinner.


I'm making great progress potty training but still need reinforcement. I love to play and run around during the day and I will sleep through the night. I'm just a lovable guy that needs an active, forever home.
