This boy was in a shelter for several weeks and when we first got him, he was scared of everything and would coward a lot. He was even terrified sometimes of being touched. We are thinking he may have been abused prior due to his fear.   But his foster mom has been working with him, letting him know he will receive gentle and kind hands that pet him, and he has slowly been getting better. He was also very emaciated when he arrived at the shelter but between the shelter and his foster mom feeding him good food, he is looking so much more better. 

Gus does great with other dogs but not too sure of cats.   He does love to run around his foster moms back yard and play with anybody who will play with him.  We think Gus would do better with older kids or at least kids that might be more on the calmer side, at least until he gets to know them. Gus does have a great personality and really wants to please. He is housebroken, crate trained and likes to be goofy or just crawl into your lap with you and say HI.   Nice gently rubbins is what he likes the most. 

Gus is neutered, current on all vaccines, heart worm negative and has been treated for worms.  He is also microchipped.  His adoption fee is $150
