Gus's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Gus's Story...
Poor Gus was brought into the shelter with another dog. He is missing most of his front teeth. We think he is about 5 years old and weighs 13 lbs. He did have scabies but is fine now although his skin is quite dry so he scratches a lot. Gus suffers a little from separation anxiety and is quite shy although loving and friendly. He is a very affectionate, sweet little guy. Gus is very submissive and may benefit from another dog in the home to give him confidence. He needs to retake Leash Walking 101 but he is trying hard to learn how to walk properly. He is food motivated. Gus is good with other dogs. He is almost housetrained. He knows how to use the doggie door but can't seem to put that together with going outside to do his business. Gus would benefit from having someone home much of the day as he may bark if left alone.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gus, a Encino Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Poodle (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Poodle (Miniature) for sale in Encino, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Poodle (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Encino.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Encino already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Encino breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Poodle (Miniature) breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Poodle (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Encino paves the way for another one to be saved.
