    “ATTENTION: 60-pound lap dog looking for soulmates! The name is Rush, the game is…Help me find my forever home? You might remember me from when I first arrived in AARCS’ care back in September. I was rescued after being run over by a car which left me in a terrible state. I was in excruciating pain with a broken leg and my chest was so tight I could barely breathe, I was so grateful that my rescuers came to my aid just in time. They patched me up pretty good considering how terrible my injuries were, I still get a bit stiff in my wrist sometimes though. My foster family tells me that I’m a lovable goofball! In my foster home I live with two canine friends and four kitty cats! I quickly learned that the cats are the boss and chasing them is not an approved activity… Sometimes I can’t help myself, but I’m working on my self-control. Which reminds me! First impressions can be tough for me, I tend to get REALLY LOUD and excitable when meeting new friends and can come on a little strong…Whoops! Thanks to my foster parents, the AARCS team and my new pals at Dawg Tired Inc. I feel like we’ve been making big progress! Once I get the chance to say hello appropriately I just love, love, love to play — especially in the snow!

    Did I tell you that I’m very clever and treat motivated! I’m learning lots of new commands and tricks and my foster mom says that soon I’ll be the trainer and they’ll be the ones rolling over! When you’re away for the day, I enjoy snoozing in my crate and relaxing — it’s my ‘zen-zone’. Okay, so here’s the deal! The family I am looking for would be one that is willing to help me with my doggie-manners, take me for walks and adventures, have an unlimited supply of kibbles and cookies ANNNND must be experts in belly scratching! In return, I will be sure to hold up my end of the deal by picking up tissues or crumbs you leave on the floor, share my copper fur coat with you, your sweaters and your pants…AND I will love you unconditionally which might include a bit of drool too! How can you say no to that? Please give me a chance at AARCS.ca/A39480892 today!” — xo Rush
