Meet Gus

A WONDERFUL FRIEND: 4 years old / 44 lbs. and needs to lose weight

Hi, my name is Gus! I had a home, but my family had too many dogs and some health challenges, so I worked my way to Mostly Mutts and am on my way to finding a new family to love, perhaps it’s you?

• OTHER DOGS/CATS/KIDS: I met some other dogs at Mostly Mutts, and I liked the dogs who were my size or smaller, but was hesitant around the bigger dogs. If you have a nice doggie at home who's about my size (or smaller), let's meet! / I reportedly got along with cats in my former home, though I have not met them at Mostly Mutts yet (only have watched them through the kennel doors - so sweet), so if you have a dog-friendly kitty at home, let's meet and see if we can live together / I haven’t met kids yet at Mostly Mutts, so let’s meet and best no very young kids that I may bump over.

• PERSONALITY/ENERGY LEVEL: I am a friendly guy who is still a bit shy and sometimes scared of new things, but I'm coming along well and think I'd really enjoy a quieter type of home to let my ears down - lol. I got to go home with a volunteer for a few days, and after just a few hours of adjusting to all the strange sounds in my new surroundings, I became playful and even started playing with toys! Since everything seems new to me, I am really benefitting from the extra time, love and care the volunteers are putting in with me. After my walks, they are spending time with me to let me know I am safe and loved. I have been a gentle sweetheart who will surely win your heart / My energy level is 4-6.

• SKILLS/CRATE/POTTY: I am a student in the Mostly Mutts University training program, where I've already mastered the 'sit', 'stay', and 'come' commands, and I accept friendly strangers without jumping. I walk well on my leash with some initial prodding to coax me out into the world that still scares me sometimes. I was also a calm, good boy during my bath at Mostly Mutts. I look forward to learning lots more, so check back soon to see my progress / My crate manners have been good at Mostly Mutts and in my temp. foster home. / My potty habits have been good on the shelter schedule and in my temp. foster home, so hopefully that will be the case in my new home, too.

• LIKES/DISLIKES: I enjoy soaking up love and affection from my people, especially a good head rub! It is helping me open up and feel more secure and confident every day. I like my toys, food and treats, and - while I was reportedly possessive of these things in my former home, that has not been observed at the shelter or when I was tested in these areas. Also formerly reported, but not seen at all, was a bit of aggression towards men - there are lots of men at the shelter and I've liked them all / Traffic on busy roads startles me, and I am quite strong, so keep a good hold on my leash. Perhaps we can find some less congested places to walk, where I will be more relaxed.

• MEDICAL: I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped and neutered.

I’m looking for a wonderful family to give me a great home! My adoption fee is $299.00, and I’m located in Kennesaw, Ga.
