Gus was brought to the kennel after being with a foster because he has separation anxiety issues when left alone. Clearly, this special guy needs to find just the right fosters or adopters that have experience with a doggie with separation anxiety and want to take the time help him learn it is safe to be alone.
Gus will coward hearing loud voices and seeing objects like brooms, sticks and the like, which makes us think someone tried to deal with his anxiety issues by screaming at him or attempting to correct his behavior with rough treatment. Moving on from a terrible ordeal can be one of the hardest things in the world, and sometimes all we need to get through it is someone who truly understands.
Gus was recently adopted by a family with 3 children under the age of 8 and a 5 year old female dog, he did great in every respect, displaying only minor anxiety separation behavior issues, the family loved him and believed they had found the perfect dog, but there were two cats in the household and Gus killed one of them. With tears on their eyes they had to return Gus to us.
Come met him, you will fall in love. With a lot of patience, understanding and loving care, Gus will claim the mature confidence of a well-rounded doggie.Gus is fully vaccinated, he is heartworm negative, neutered and microchipped.
