Meet Gus

Giuseppe aka Gus is a young boy with not a great start to life. He was confiscated and found very underweight, with flat feet and long nails, infected wounds, and whipworms. The best thing that happened to Gus was ending up in the shelter so he could be rescued! Gus has been in foster care for a couple weeks and ready to move to a forever home! He is loving new experiences and exploring the world. Gus is a sweetheart that loves cuddles and affection despite humans mistreatment of him. He is doing well in his crate and has no issues with handling. Gus sadly has scars on his muzzle and hasn’t had the best interactions with other dogs. Due to this, he needs to be an only pet in his forever home. Gus can be a little nervous meeting new people but warms up quickly, especially with treats! He has met children around the age of
10 and done very well! Gus was a star for his vet visit and even climbed into the vets lap for snuggles! He is estimated to be a year old, possibly younger, and weighs 60 lbs with more weight gain needed. Gus will require continued socialization and obedience training so that he can blossom into the great dog we know he can be!
