    You may remember Rush from his updates in September while he was still on the mend after being hit by a vehicle. Thanks to the TLC provided by AARCS staff and volunteers he is back to living life as a typical puppy and ready to meet his new family. To follow his journey on Instagram check him out at #fight4Rush

    Rush is a 60 pound lap dog that loves meeting new people and soaking up as much love and attention as possible. This lovable goofball currently lives with 2 adults, 2 dogs and 4 cats. He’s still working on his first impression skills with other dogs as he tends to be very loud and excited by the prospect of making new friends. Lots of progress has been made in the last month, and once he gets the chance to say hello he loves to play, especially in the snow! Rush is learning that the cats are the boss in the house and that chasing them is not a feline-approved pastime. This pup is very clever and loves food which means he learns commands and tricks very quickly. Pretty soon he will be the one teaching us to roll over! He sleeps quietly in his crate and stays in there calmly while we are not home. Rush wants his ideal humans to be willing to work on doggy manners with him, take him for long walks on the beach, have an unlimited supply of kibble, and be expert belly scratchers. In return Rush will make sure to pick up any tissues or crumbs left on the floor, cover your ugly Christmas sweaters with his beautiful copper hairs, and drool in your lap as he falls asleep to your expert belly rubs. How can you say *no* to a deal like that?
