Gus requires a home with another canine companion, and no cats. He is also a very shy timid fellow so he will need a somewhat quiet environment and a new parent that can help him continue to gain confidence.
He is around 5 years old.
Augustus, Gus or 'Gus Gus' as we call him is a friendly, happy, and lovable 35-40 pound bundle of energy. This guy came to us as a very skittish stray. Whereas he once was tentative to go through a door, now he can't go through fast enough to discover what is on the other side! He loves getting his ears scratched, giving tender puppy kisses, and playing with his foster sisters. Gus Gus is good with other dogs. We have been working hard to socialize this guy to alleviate his skittishness. Gus Gus is good on a leash, doesn't pull, and is mostly house broke. He is a smart boy and learned to sit VERY quickly. He also LOVES water!
