When I was little, I always got this series mixed up with Lassie. Dog hero - little boy who was friend of dog. Pretty similar, except for the cavalry part and the era being quite different. And, oh yeah - German Shepherd and Collie.
I was very small when I watched this show. It was in syndication at this time.
Basically, I remember Rinny helping rustle bad guys and being the mascot of the Cavalry troop. I also remember Rusty as being a red-haired freckle-faced boy who was cute, a la Beaver Cleaver.
This was an entertaining show - good moral stories with good ending - typical for the fifties.
And really, who could resist a show with a boy and a dog?
