Gus is a delightful and loving dachshund mix, about two to three years old, with a heart of gold! Gus is gentle and shy at first, but quickly warms up. This friendly little guy will be happiest in a home that will give him lots of exercise, TLC and love. He loves cuddling under blankets in bed and as much lap time as possible! Also, a backyard with a doggy door would be a huge plus.
At about thirteen pounds, Gus is house-trained, but he does sometimes pee in the garage. He would be fine with another dog but would need to be in a home with older children. A calm environment is preferred due to his shyness. Gus is high-spirited, attentive, gentle and playful, and very people-centered. Though Gus would not do well if left home alone for long periods he will thrive on lots of exercise, snuggles, occasional cheese and playtime. Give Gus a chance and he will be your best friend forever!
Gus is eligible to have his adoption fee waived if adopted on the June 9th and 10th weekend as part of Maddie's Matchmaker Adoptathon.
