Rusty is a golden retriever that breaks out of his kennel to explore his neighborhood and the world. He meets other animals in his neighborhood and then he gets lost while discovering his own town. While he is lost, he meets new friends along the way who help him and feed him. Meanwhile, back at home, Jazmyn is worried sick she might never see Rusty again. Rusty meets a boy named Stevie who lives over a bakery his dad owns, and Rusty meets a new dog named Ginger that helps him on his journey to get back home. They are chased by security guards, are almost run over by a tractor, experience a near-death-defying bridge crossing, and encounter fast-moving cars everywhere! You will love Rusty. He is the nicest, friendliest dog there is!
