Facts about Gus
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
I am already neutered.
Gus is a sweet, timid pup. He's shy at first, and will need a little bit of time to warm up (and maybe some treats). Gus is looking for a patient and loving forever family who spend time and work with him on boosting his confidence and social skills. Due to his timid nature, Gus would do best in a home with older children and no other dogs. Gus is a lovable pup, and just needs a little love and care to be the best pooch he can be!
Wallflower Shy yet charming canine searching for patient owner with relaxed lifestyle. Looking for gentle guidance to help me come out of my shell. Treat me sweet and kind and I'll blossom.
