Angus's Story...
Hi !! I am Angus - "Gus" for short. I am a year old black lab mix - not quite sure what I am mixed with! I am very very friendly and just love people. I do have a lot of energy to burn so I will need daily exercise - once I have played outside for a bit, I will calm down and lay at your feet. I love to be next to my humans. I am just a love bug that wants to please.I know sit, "no",and come when I am called (most times!) and am learning down.I am good in the car. I can get excited in new situations (new people "yeah") just because I love LIFE! I am house and crate trained. I will do just about anything for a treat or a pet! I do need some practice walking on a leash - I tend to pull.. but that will just take some time and practice. I learn quickly. I am doing so much better on a leash since coming to my foster Mom's house a short time ago! I like to sit next to my foster Mom either by her feet or with my head on her lap.

So, what’s my story?
I just arrived in CT from a very high kill shelter in Corpus Christi Texas. I knew my chances were SLIM as I am black and with Black Dog Syndrome, the black dogs are put down first. I was an owner surrender-strike 2! I knew I only had a few days to find a new place to live. A wonderful volunteer contacted Brooke’s Angels in CT and asked if they could take me under their wings. Thankfully Brooke’s Angels said yes.. or I probably would not be here today ….. Now here I am in CT!

My new Mom and/or Dad will have to be patient and continue to teach me new things ( I am still a pup ). I know I would love it if I could go for walks, a jog , or run - this would also help me get the leash thing down! It would be best if I went to a home with older children since I may knock small ones down with excitement! Please consider adopting me! I love it here with my foster mom and siblings but I want a home to call my own!

Update:
Gus just LOVES his humans and follows them around where ever we go. HE is very dedicated and loves to be close and is a true love bug with people..Gus knows "No"and sit and down.. HE LOVES to play fetch! He will chase a ball (or anything you want to throw) and bring it back to you. He always comes when he is called when there are no distractions ( ie : other dogs outside). We can take anything out of his mouth - and pick up his food dish while he is eating without any issues. He should not be placed in a home with feline companions they would be too much of a temptation! He would make a great running or jogging partner. If you are looking for a true ";people person dog"; - that loves to give kisses and lay by your feet - Gus is the dog for you.

My adoption fee is $450 and that includes my vetting, neuter, shots, microchip.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Angus, a East Windsor Labrador Retriever/Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Border Collie for sale in East Windsor, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Border Collie dog from a breeder in East Windsor.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in East Windsor 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 East Windsor 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 Labrador Retriever/Border Collie breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in East Windsor paves the way for another one to be saved.
