Dogs for Adoption

Meet GUS!

Gus is such a cool dog – he is such a dude. He thinks everything and everyone are the best things ever and he loves to play/bounce and hoon with other dogs. He plays hard so Gus will need other dogs that will keep up and rough and tumble too.

Gus has great basic commands, will listen to what you want him to do, is very smart and tries so hard to get it right for you. He would be perfect for a busy active family or couple. We can imagine him at all the sports events, up in a tree house or jumping on the trampoline. He would make a great hiking buddy too, or beach bum and he would love doggie daycare.

Enrichment and involvement is the key to Gus’s happiness (that is true for all dogs isn’t it?); he is like a young boy that is all action, then will crash on top of you fast asleep.

Gus may play like a full-on little puppy but when another dog gives him a bit of a grumble for being too much of a wally it really hurts his feelings, bless him, so he is a very sensitive boy. He is such a cuddly boy too. Gus can spring out of low fencing so good, high solid fencing is a must!

Gus is shorter and softer than this pic suggests and gosh he is handsome. He looks just like a teddy bear.

Gus is an 8-month-old Smithfield/Boxer X and he is currently at Club HUHA in Otaki. Please call us if you would like to pop by and take him for a walk so he can charm you with his perfect manners
