This placid duo are the pawfect addition to any home!
Sadly, Rusty and Spike's elderly parents were no longer able to care for them so they became part of the PPAR family. These cute guys are a bonded pair so must find their forever home together.
The pair are estimated to be about 9-10 years old, both Terrier X's and are both in excellent health.
Rusty and Spike would be ideal for the quiet couple who are looking for a companion, the young couple whom are at work during the day but want cuddles at night and on weekends or even the busy family who are looking to complete their household.
The pair currently live with two other dogs and have proven to be very friendly towards them. Whilst with PPAR, they have been around children, gone for walks, slept outside and inside, been left alone during the day whilst indoors, among various other things and have demonstrated that they don't have any hidden secrets or 'mischief' streaks. They haven't been around cats or livestock whilst in foster care but indications are they should go ok. Normal secure fencing is fine as they have not proven to be jumpers.
Spike - Spike is a lovely gentleman whom reaps cuddles and attention. If you're on the lounge then Spike would love nothing more than to curl up beside you (often ensuring he is touching you in some capacity). Spike doesn't bark, is great around food and loves going on walks (although not for very long ones as he is the older gentleman of the pair). Spike is very independent and often entertains himself with a ball!
Rusty - Rusty is timid at first and takes a couple of days to build trust with his humans (particularly males). With patience, space and lots of treats from the hand, Rusty captures your heart fast! Rusty loves to 'bop' you to gain your attention, whether that be while you're watching television or even 'bopping' you on the leg while you're making a cuppa. Rusty enjoys going for walks and being social, although just like his pal, doesn't require walking everyday!
As you can tell, both Rusty and Spike have their unique personalities and together they make the best of friends! They quickly steal everyone's hearts that they cross and can't wait to start their new venture with the pawfect family!
