Gus is a healthy black and white lab mix, fully vetted and up to date on his vaccinations, and heart worm negative. Gus had a very difficult start in life, and his full back ground is unknown; however, he was taken to the shelter with scars all over his face. The wonderful staff at the shelter believe he was a bait dog for dog fighting. There is no aggression in him - he can be shy. HE LOVES to go on walks. He gets along with all dogs and lets them know if they get too close..lol... He had obviously never been given any love, he did not know his name, he had fresh bites all over his body, and his spirit was broken when he came into the safety of Cody's family. He has made constant baby steps to being a wonderful pet. Gus needs someone to give him love and understanding that he is very timid, but he does want to be a part of a family. Gus has lived in a home with children but we encourage no small children. He has been around 2 cats and ignored them. He is potty trained and just a beautiful dog. He weighs about 65 lbs and is probably about 2 years old. He is a gorgeous boy. The scars on his face remind us that he has been wounded but not in spirit. Beautiful boy!
