   Rusty is a 4 to 5 year old Labrador and Bulldog mix. He gets along great with other dogs, kids, and even cats. He is a very active dog and absolutely loves going for walks and car rides.

When Rusty arrived at the Blue Water Humane Society, he was diagnosed with heartworm disease. He recently received his final treatment and is now a happy and healthy animal, but due to the heartworm condition, he will not be available for adoption until the beginning of December.

He would make a perfect Christmas gift for someone looking for an active and loving larger dog.

Rusty’s adoption fee will be $125. To help cover the costs of adoption, an anonymous supporter has offered to help cover the cost of any pet featured in the Erie Square Gazette.

For more information on Rusty, contact the Blue Water Humane Society at 810-987-4357.

Back from last year is the ability to knock opponents out of moves, which comes in handy when a friend is about to be hit with a devastating finishing move.
