Welcome Gus!! This 8 month old pup is currently 35 pounds, and should top out at 50 pounds or less once fully grown!
Since he is a puppy, Gus still has a lot of learning to do – but he is doing his best to master new skills! Foster Mom is working on potty-training and crate-training him, and she reports that he has greatly improved in these areas since he joined the ACR family! With a consistent schedule and an eye out for his potty signals, we think he’ll be potty trained in no time. As far as crate training goes, he will go into the kennel for food and to relax while Foster Mom is away or otherwise busy. But, if he knows you’re doing something fun without him he will call out to you to let you know that he wants in on the fun.
We haven’t seen Gus with cats yet, but due to his friendly demeanor we think that he would probably be a little curious and maybe want to play a game or two of tag with them. We have, however, seen Gus with dog friends, as he lives with a couple other ACR adoptables (like Timber and Theodore!). He is very submissive to all the dogs, and constantly wants to play with them. Confidence is not an issue with Gus, as he will gladly walk up to any person or dog and expect them to be friends at first sight. Since he is so friendly, we think he would be great with children, too!
Energy-wise, Gus is currently content just having some play sessions in the backyard with his dog- and human-friends. If he’s not playing with the dogs, he will find something else to do to entertain himself – be that trying to get pets, playing with toys, digging some holes, or trying to talk to his friends! He is quite the chatterbox, and loves letting you know that he wants to play, that he saw something cool outside, or to ask other dogs if they want to play with him again.
If he’s not trying to talk to you or play, you can bet that he’ll probably be in a play bow stance! Gus says that he does his best thinking that way, and who are we to disagree with that cute face??
