Trusty can usually seem absentminded and a little clumsy, but is a loyal, sweet and respectful friend to Lady and everyone else. He has a large way with manners referring to Lady as "Miss Lady, ma'am." Trusty is extremely heroic, risking his life to save Tramp and nearly died in the process.
Lady and the TrampEdit
Trusty's first appearance is in the beginning of the film where he is asleep dreaming of his former glory days of tracking down criminals in the swamps with his grandfather Old Reliable.

Trusty later appears with Jock, as Lady is depressed at the fact that Jim Dear and Darling have not been giving the love and respect that she usually gain from them. The two of them realizes that Darling is having a baby and tries to explain with no luck until Jock explains. They briefly describe what a baby is and is interrupted by Tramp. Trusty tells Lady not to listen to Tramp's stories.
After Lady's heartwarming and heartbreaking adventure with Tramp, Jock and Trusty then appears as he visits her. Trusty is then seen feeling guilty at the fact that he misjudged Tramp after he saved Lady and Jim Jr. from a vicious rat. To redeem themselves, Jock and Trusty rush to find the dog catcher wagon, where Jock realizes that Trusty never lost his sence of smell; in fact, Trusty's sense of smell is so acute that the rain concealing the trail helped him track it down. Trusty and Jock successfully stop the wagon, but Trusty was caught in the wheel, leaving him seriously injured, seemingly killed, but Christmas Day, it was shown to only be a broken leg, and joins his family for Christmas.
