THIS IS GUS' STORY...

 
HAVE YOU MET GUS???? Gus is a handsome 58 pound three year old Pointer/Cattle Dog mix. He was a favorite at the high kill rural shelter where he was pulled.  Poor Gus was surrendered to animal control by his family when the female dogs in the neighborhood kept getting in the yard to visit Gus who wasn't neutered and was forced to live outside. Instead of neutering this wonderful dog, they brought poor Gus in while the family's little girl hugged his neck and cried. Gus has since been neutered and been brought up to date on all his vaccines. He unfortunately did test positive for heartworms and Castoff Pet Rescue has treated him for this.  Gus loves being an indoor dog! Gus' favorite thing to do is cuddle with his humans. He is what we call a Velcro dog, meaning he always wants to be near his people. He is great with children and would make a great family pet! He would love another dog as a playmate but unfortunately he does like to chase cats. Gus is housebroken.  He's super smart and a quick learner! He learned to ring the bell on the back door within a few days just by watching the other dogs. Could this special boy be the one for you? With his good looks and fantastic personality, he won't be around for long! If interested, contact foster mom at myfosterpups@gmail.com.
 

About Castoff Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

The mission of Castoff Pet Rescue is to save and nurture homeless dogs; to match companion animals with loving, life-long homes; to foster responsible pet care; to control overpopulation in our community through spay/neuter programs; and to assist other shelters and rescue groups in any endeavor to benefit the animals. We believe that the same kindness, compassion, and generosity we extend to our two-legged neighbors should be given to our four-legged friends because they are not able to speak for themselves.
