Augustus "Gus"'s Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Augustus "Gus"'s Story...
Augustus "Gus" is a young male German Shepherd/Labrador Retriever mixed breed. Gus needs a foster home without cats!
He only weighs 49 lbs, so he is small for the breed mix. He has handsome good looks going for him! Gus is neutered, current on his vaccines and is heartworm negative. He does great on a leash, listens to any correction and is crate and house trained. He is learning how to be dog social with other canines, and learning that not every dog wants to attack him. He will now play ball with the pack and understand not every ball is his and he will step away if another dog gets to the ball first. He is over the top with cats in his foster home, so we think a home without cats is a must for him (and the cats!). He is not a hyper dog who will knock you over, but he would really enjoy a full time companion to share his days.

If you have balls, sticks or Frisbees to toss, or want to make trips to the lake, beach or pond, count him in! Do you need a running companion? He's a perfect fit. Couch Potato companion - great, but as of now he does not get on any furniture. Gus is a great car traveling companion.

Gus has learned to "settle" and that he can relax. He has not chewed anything in his foster home, except a leash while tethered learning his indoor boundaries (Purely due to the cats in the home.). He sleeps in his crate all night without a peep and has a happy genuine wag at all times. He does not jump up and is embracing the new words he is learning.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Augustus "Gus", a Smithfield German Shepherd Dog/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog/Labrador Retriever for sale in Smithfield, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Smithfield.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Smithfield 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 Smithfield 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 German Shepherd Dog/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Smithfield paves the way for another one to be saved.
