Facts about Gus

  • Breed: American Bulldog
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10007821-C1603

Gus is a friendly, playful boy who would love a new family to call his own. Gus wasn't in very good shape when he came to us in March. He was very underweight and had a severe hookworm and whipworm infestation with bone fragments in his fecal exam from trying to survive on carcasses, we believe. With a couple months of TLC, having received 2 rounds of deworming, putting on about 20 pounds, being neutered and vaccinated, and kept on a good grain-free diet, Gus is better than ever and ready to meet his new family!

Gus would do best in a home with a canine companion - females dogs only (we don't think he will get along with other males very well and he is food-aggressive to other dogs - not humans though), or in a home as the only dog with older, respectful children who will give him a lot of attention. He also seems to be okay with cats. He does not chase or try to attack them. Gus has a tendency to become destructive when bored and would prefer a home with moderate activity. He is a large dog (75#) and very strong, so small children or elderly would probably not be a very good fit. He likes to go for car rides, loves his toys and we believe he is somewhat house-trained, although he lives both indoor and outdoor at his current foster home.

About The OTIS Foundation Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

The O.T.I.S. Foundation Inc. is a 501(c)3 registered tax-exempt nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of animals in our community and beyond.

We are a small group of people who love animals and believe in the value of all living beings. We want to ensure that our community's pets are treated with respect and teach others to recognize and understand the value of the animals' lives.

Through education, we strive to promote the importance of proper animal care, spaying and neutering, the value of adoption and fostering, as well as the enforcement of animal protection laws.

By educating the people, if we are able to reform the community into more responsible pet owners, this will help break the cycle of pet-overpopulation, abandonment, and many other current issues.

The O.T.I.S. Foundation Inc. specializes in keeping pets in their homes by helping pet owners who are in need. We believe people should not have to give up their pets due to financial hardships and we also provide assistance to stray animals by funding emergency veterinary care and placement.

We also provide lost and found services; safe pet-rehoming services; low-cost spay and neuter assistance; pet food assistance; emergency veterinary care assistance; informal advice in animal law; and natural, holistic remedies as an alternative to traditional pet care and Western Medicine.
