Facts about Gus

  • Breed: English Mastiff Mix
  • Color: Brindle
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10430945

Gus was surrendered because he got too big to control with no training. However, with a firm, consistent leader, he a fabulous dog that wants to please. Gus seems to be house-trained. He is excellent with small dogs and cats. With proper introduction, he gets along with big dogs as well, but can be a bit of a bully so he would be best in a home without other big dogs.  Gus is full-grown, but he is still maturing mentally. Continued training will be paramount to ensure his happiness and success with a potential adopter.  He also needs to be in a home with older kids 12 and up. He is around 2 years old and 130 pounds.  Must be ok with slobber/drool. 

 To help pay for vet bills and care (transportation, food, toys, etc..) a $350 donation is requested at the time of adoption. All of our adoptions are contingent upon an approved application, home visit, reference check, obedience training agreement, and signing of adoption contract. All our dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped before adoption. Our dogs are companion animals that live indoors as part of your family. Please do not apply if your plan is to have them as outside dogs, garage dogs, porch dogs or outside kennel dogs.


All of our dogs are in private foster homes. We are not a shelter with hours. A visit can be arranaged after an adoption questionnaire has been filled out and sent in. Please try email first. We are all volunteers that work so we can not easily take or make phone calls.

About Midwest Dog Rescue Network

About Our Rescue Group...

We are not a shelter but a small group foster homes. We rescue dogs from high kill shelters and puppymills. We also take owner surrenders. All of our dogs are spayed and neutered and have current vaccinations before being adopted.
We are a "network" of volunteer rescuers in the Midwest. Many of us have known one another for years from helping with various local rescue groups, shelters, and national breed rescue groups. All of us have had the experience of coming across a dog that needed help that didn’t have a rescue group that could take them into their program. We were finding that regardless of breed or whether a dog is "purebred", there are many of us out there who wanted to help these dogs and need a place to list them. Therefore, we decided to start Midwest Dog Rescue Network to help rescuers help dogs that would otherwise "fall through the cracks". We are a collection of rescuers and some good-hearted individuals, who are just trying to help as many good dogs find homes as possible.

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in our adoption process is filling out and an adoption questionnaire that helps up match the right dog with the right person. Then our group reviews the questionnaires, then one of our members contacts the person that seems to fit to talk more and meet the dog and family. We do have adoption fees that help cover the cost of spay and neutered and vaccinations. Our fees also go into a general fund that helps us buy out dogs from puppymills.
