ADOPTED!!!  Gus is a lovable, 10-year-old tricolor male who came to us from a private home. He is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, microchipped, and has had a dental. Gus knows a couple of tricks like sit, paw and down.  He walks well on a leash and and enjoys his daily walks, although at a leisurely pace.  Gus crates well, although he has the run of the house whenever his foster mom is home. He loves to be petted and have his belly rubbed—when you stop, he paws your hand or leg to get you to keep petting him. Gus has never marked indoors and, in fact, enjoys being outdoors.  He is a 'young' senior who still enjoys running the fence line with the neighbors' dogs.  And he is excellent at policing the front of my home. Gus notifies me anytime someone walks up the driveway or sidewalk.  He is currently on Phycox and is in excellent health. He enjoys having his rear end and hips massaged and does a little dance to encourage you not to stop. Gus LOVES to car for car rides.  He is truly a GREAT dog.  Gus is a gentle soul, looking for his forever family.
