I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Kelsey Rodas, the human behind the @rustyrodas Instagram account. Rusty, a golden retriever, has an incredible tale to tell of how he went from abandoned pup to canine celebrity. He has over 60,000 followers on Instagram now and his own line of greeting cards. He also volunteers at a local animal shelter, helping coach other rescue dogs to recovery. What’s also interesting is that I followed Rusty and Kelsey separately on Instagram for about a year before realizing they worked together. I knew Kelsey from college. It just so happened we both went to the Portland Gear #PDXMEET earlier this summer, where she was there with Rusty. Small world.
