About Rusty & Sandy

Rusty & Sandy

The mascot dogs

became the representatives for Home Timber & Hardware when people at HTH immediately saw their undeniable potential as the lovable rogues that they are. They were recruited on the spot to become the face of the brand.

Over the years, Rusty and Sandy have had an array of merchandise produced in their honour with hundreds of thousands of them being sold and given away by Home Timber & Hardware stores over the years. You’ll see them in our catalogues…in fact you might even catch life-size versions of them in store at Globe.


The dogs are universally loved by adults and kids alike and that’s why they continue to play a leading role in the Home brand today.


He´s a trade dog who grew up in the country. He’s the consummate professional in all things DIY. There is not a tool or technique with which he is not familiar. If it´s changing a tap washer or knocking up a new pergola he’s got it covered. From a hinge for a door to a compound mitre saw, Rusty knows the proper way to use it, maintain it and all the safety tips.

He´s in his element shooting the breeze with the staff at his local Home Timber & Hardware store who, like Rusty, love to talk timber and tools. Like a good friend, there’s nothing Rusty likes more than passing on that info to anyone who needs a hand, including his best mate Sandy.


He´s your suburban dog, who is a self confessed DIY tragic. Once as handy as an ashtray on a motorbike, thanks to years of giving it a go and endless advice from Rusty and the team at his local Home Timber & Hardware store, he can now hold his own and tackle all the hard projects himself.

While Sandy would sometimes much prefer to get Rusty to do all his DIY projects and handyman jobs, when he’s not always that flush with funds or there is that little job that the missus wants done that just can´t wait, he’ll gladly put on his work pants and tool belt and visit his local Home store for some expert advice and give it a go

At Globe, our customers come first & so we’re doing more for homemakers, renovators, and tradies.
