Looking for a larger-than-life lover boy to have a blast with? Then you should meet me, Rush, dog No.17.

I’m a 4-year-old snuggle bug that’s sure to try to fit my 83-pound frame right into your arms for cuddles and kisses if you will let me.

Some folks may think I’m some big tough guy, but in reality I’m just a big softy who’s a playgroup rock star that loves to ham it up for you by carrying my favorite bowl around to make you smile. If you were to give me the chance to win you over, we are sure to have many awesome adventures for many years to come.
