Hello,  My Name is Gustav a.k.a “Gus”.  I just got sprung for good behavior from the County Big Dog House. Yah, that’s me and I’m pretty tough although my foster mommy calls me luvy poo poo and good dog all the time, geesh.  She is pretty nice to me so I let her get away with it.  Im looking for a pad of my own though and you’ll find me pretty easy to live with.  I am very obedient, and smart if I do say so myself,  cause I know lots of commands. I'll be be your side as your best friend and always protect you which works best if I can lay on your lap. 

Gus is a love bug and tries so hard to please me.   He wants to meet everybody during our walks so he can be hard to control on a leash but only when other people and pets are around.  He gets along well with my two doggies, and has since day one.  So, it seems he is showing some leash aggression which I am actively working to correct this behavior.  And let me tell you, this furbaby is more than worth it.
