I HAVE EXCITING NEWS! MY ADOPTION FEE HAS BEEN FULLY SPONSORED. THAT MEANS THAT MY ADOPTION FEE IS $0 TO A QUALIFIED APPLICANT. SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? APPLY TO ADOPT ME!
Hello folks, my name is Gus and I was a Griffin Mud Dog until the wonderful people at Furkids saved me. If you don’t know about what happened to me and all the other dogs in that situation, well you’re lucky cause I wish I didn’t either. My old owners had way too many of us and kept us in mud filled, caged pits on their property. Some days, I just wanted to give up especially when some of the other guys that were stuck there kinda lost their minds and attacked me. They tore me up real bad and I figured that was the end. I’m not good at fighting. I’m more of a lover. But just when I thought I’d never get out of that nightmare, some awesome people stepped in and got me to the shelter. It was so nice to be clean for the first time in my life and to have all of my injuries taken care of. Believe it or not, after all the stuff I’ve been through, I still really like humans. I don’t exactly hate other dogs but I’d really rather be the only one in the house. I actually spent some time in a real home for a while and learned how much I love to lay around and nap. Also how much I love to cuddle. I never even knew you could do that with someone. That’s probably also why I really only like older kids over 12 or so because they tend to understand that I don’t enjoy wild, loud behavior. I’ve had enough of that in my life. When I came to Furkids, I had heartworms but I went through the treatment and came out 100% negative on the other side. During that time, I could only be leash walked and the folks at the shelter were amazed at what a wonderful walking companion I turned out to be after having not a lick of training. I’m just a happy fella and all I want is to be loved and treated with kindness. I promise, if you give me a chance, I’ll be the best friend you ever had. My adoption fee is 100% sponsored, all I need now is for you to bring me home.
