Augustus's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and not good with cats.

Augustus's Story...
Hey there! My name is Augustus, but you can call me Gus, or GusBuster, 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. 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 – none at all really on my tail. Whoa, but look at how fluffy it is now!

I am a very happy go lucky and playful character and I LOVE kids! I really enjoy them and I’m so good with them. My foster family has two daughters, age 6 and 9, and I am their biggest fan! So, you get it, my #1 priority in life is my humans. 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!

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, social and playful boy. He LOVES kids, and is very good with them. He should not be placed in a home with cats or small (toy) breeds.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Augustus, a Houston German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog for sale in Houston, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston 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 Houston 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 German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
