; Staff member Amanda took him out on a hike with a chi, deaf puppy, and two adult dogs. He did Fantastic. He has great recall, plays really well and loves to give dog kisses. He wanted to chase the cows but listened when I told him no. He does run by you and lick or chew on your hand and acts like a very large puppy.
; *Return Notes* 10/17/16 Gus is a sweet, goofy guy and mostly good at home with kids and other home pets. Unfortunately, he has become aggressive in situations inside and outside of the home. I really think he is trainable. He is very strong, and very powerful.
; I live next to a school and a park where people walk dogs. I thought this was going to be a great situation being so close to the dog park. But it has created a safety issue because if he gets out of my yard (sometimes my kids forget to close a gate). he will run down and chase after people and dogs very aggressively. He went after a dog while it's owner was walking by behind my house.
; I have sent him to Happy Hound for a one week training program and have hired a trainer. When I have brought him to the dog park off leash or Pt. Isabel for example. he runs around and does not bark at the other dogs or act aggressive.
; Gus got along with my other dog. But she barks a lot at everything, she is small, and this has not helped Gus as he then thinks he too must bark and then be protective. Gus would be fine in another home with a dog that is more mature and mellow. Probably not suitable for a home with children. An adult couple that wants a large dog and has time to work with him and give him lots of exercise. Gus loves ice cubes and thinks they are a real treat.'
