Gus's Story...
Gus is a very handsome, playful clown of a 10-month-old, 78-pound, male Mastiff or mix looking for a loving guardian. Gus was found as a stray in Gary, Indiana. He did his time at Animal Control and is now living in a wonderful foster home in Chicago where he is doing well with all the other dogs, and playful with dog-friendly cats. He’s a gangly pup who’s quick to catch on to new commands and new routines. He learned to sit on command, and take treats gently in just 24 hours. Gus is well-behaved in the home and car; housebroken, crate-trained, and good on leash (but strong). He loves playing with other dogs, toys and balls. We’re not sure what Gus’ life was like before he was rescued, but he is a little fearful at times, so he’s recommended for someone with dog experience, without small children in the home, who has time to exercise and train a big lug of a pup. Gus is now healthy, neutered, heartworm-tested, micro-chipped, and up-to-date on rabies and distemper vaccines. To meet and possibly adopt him, please contact his foster mom Kelly at or 773-251-3090 His adoption fee of $200 benefits rescued pets.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gus, a Chicago Mastiff dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Mastiff for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Mastiff dog from a breeder in Chicago.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Chicago breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Mastiff breeders who help with Mastiff rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
