The Siege of White Deer ParkEdit
During his second spring Rusty accompanies his uncle Friendly and the other foxes on their expedition to seek out The Beast and remove it from the park. When the three young foxes go to search for food, Rusty, Husky and Pace eat the remains of a white deer which have been left by the Beast, but they are watched by the creature from the branch of a tree as they eat. Rusty does not appear much in the book after the death of Husky, but he is present with all the other foxes when the animals go to investigate the Beast's lair by the stream.
In the Path of the StormEdit
Early the following spring Rusty and Pace tease Tawny Owl about his bachelorhood, until Charmer arrives and puts a stop to it. Rusty is also present when several of the animals make the trip to the pond to drink in order to show Trey that he cannot stop them from drinking there.
Battle for the ParkEdit
Rusty only appears during the final battle against the rats, along with all the other members of Fox and Vixen's family.
