Gus is a very friendly 2 year-old Black Lab mix male who found himself homeless at a rural county dog shelter. The shelter raved about what a nice dog Gus is so when he wasn’t claimed, he made the trip to Canine Lifeline so he could enjoy life in a foster home while searching for the perfect new home. The first thing you notice about Gus when you meet him is that he loves to “smile” and will flash his silly, charming grin more than any dog we’ve ever met. Gus refused to smile for the camera though and eventually chose to avoid the camera all together! While he wasn’t very cooperative with picture taking, Gus has been very agreeable in every other respect. He gets along well with other dogs, has excellent crate manners in his foster home, and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. Gus walks quite well on a leash and looks forward to having lots of fun adventures with his new family. He weighs about 50 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Gus. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age.
