Greetings! My name is Augustus, but you can call me Gus, or The Gusmeister, or even Gusopotumus! Augustus means “majestic” or “the increaser”, both which fit me to a T! Although I may not look regal, I am truly devoted to my humans and will treat them like royalty while at the same time greatly increasing the amount of joy in their lives! Honestly!

As you can probably tell from my photos, I am a uniquely adorable German Shepherd Dog. My ears are floppy and my fur is long and a bit scruffy. My personality, though, is spot on GSD – I’m intelligent, loyal, eager to please, protective, and I’ve mastered the whole Velcro-dog thing. When the heroes of GHGSDR rescued me, I was scrawny and my hair was scarce. My physique is a work in progress, but my friendly, calm, happy go lucky and playful character is steadfast. You need me, I’m there. You don’t need me, I’m still there for you. You have work to do, I understand...I’ll be waiting next to you, or between you and the door, just in case I need to protect you!

Ok so you probably get #1 priority in life is my humans. A close second, is playing. I am pretty much a professional when it comes to playing. I particularly LOVE playing with other dogs, however, I am not above having some fun playing by myself. Just give me some toys and watch me entertain myself (and you, lol!).

So if you’re looking for a tall, dark, fluffy boy with an amazing personality, please let my rescuers know you are interested in Augustus. Speaking of Augustus, did you know the famous Roman Augustus was the adopted son of Julius Caesar? Just think...if you adopt me, not only will you be getting a fantastic new furry family member, but we will be re-creating some important history!

Special Considerations for Adoption:Augustus is a big, playful boy who would do best in a home with another dog.

About Greater Houston German Shepherd Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

GHGSDR volunteers are dedicated to saving as many German Shepherds in the Greater Houston Metro area as humanly possible - based on current resources of available foster homes, the rate at which we can find suitably matched adoptive homes, and of course, financial resources for veterinary care.

GHGSDR Shepherds mostly come from animal shelters where they are awaiting euthanasia. All of these Shepherd Dogs need loving, forever homes and families to call their own. We have several GSDs available for adoption and we regularly take in more Shepherds under our wings and into our Rescue Program, increasing the numbers of dogs available for adoption. Whenever we can, we also work with other dog rescue groups in Texas and nationwide to help ensure the safety and security of these wonderful animals.

Come Meet Our Pets...

GHGSDR holds Meet and Greets @ several Petco stores in the Houston area each month, usually from 1pm to 4pm. Check our homepage for locations and dates.

On our homepage we list the names of the dogs that are expected to be at the event - check 1 or 2 days before the event.

We hope that you will come on out and meet some of our wonderful GSDs. Meet our volunteers and learn more about why GSDs are a wonderful breed!
See you there!
