HI, My name is Gus Gus, but my foster mom just calls me Gus. I'm approx 5 years old, and I'm looking for my forever home where I can show you how much I will love you. Here is what my foster mom has to say about me.

I'm crate and potty trained, I know how to use the doggie door. I'm very loving and affectionate, My foster mom says I'm very smart. I know sit, shake, down, sit at a distance, leash trained, and I will sit and wait for your command. I take treats gently, I'm not food/toy aggressive. I ride in the car very well. I enjoy going on walks. I love to play in the hose with the water, you can see my videos and how excited I get.  I play with 4 other doggies that live with me. I'm a pretty mellow boy that just enjoys the company of my human friends. I like to play with toys sometimes, I love Peanut Butter in my kong.  I'm get timid/scared at times, please give me time to warm up to you.  My foster mom takes me to petco and it was very scary for me, but I'm getting better each time.  I listen very well.  Kids really scare me, so I would really prefer NO KIDS, but if you have kids and they are older then 16 that would be ok. All I want to do is please you, I love to stay by your hip and look up at you and show you my love. One of my favorite things to do is sit and put my paw on you.  If you would like to meet me please email from this page, and if you do have other dogs I would love to meet them as well. NO CATS please.

Love, Gus
