Grateful Dogs Rescue is holding an adoption event at Sports Basement Potrero this Saturday, May 12th from 11:00 – 2:00 (for complete details click here). Gus is a dog who was rescued from the San Francisco Animal Care and Control shelter and has been in foster care with a Grateful Dogs Rescue volunteer. He is now ready to be adopted and if you are interested in meeting him, please come out to the adoption event. For Gus' profile, scroll down below his photo,
Gus is a delightful dachshund mix who is about two or three years old. Gus has a heart of gold (behaves and looks older though), he's gentle, shy at first, but quickly warms up and gains confidence with people around him. This friendly dog will thrive in a home that will give him lots of exercise, lots of care, attention and love. A calm environment is preferred for Gus, he loves cuddling under blankets in bed, and a backyard with a doggy door is a huge plus (loud or sudden noises frighten him, and he will bark if he is afraid or feels unsafe, (rain/thunder/lightening, street noises, mail carriers). At about thirteen punds, Gus is mostly house-trained. He would be fine with other dogs, but would need to be in a home with older children, due to his shyness. Gus is high-spirited, attentive, gentle and playful, dependent on others, and very people-centered. Gus would not do well if left home alone for long periods, but would love lots of exercise, occasional cheese and playtime. All Gus needs is another chance, and he will be your best friend forever.
