Adopt Gus a Black Mixed Breed (Medium) / Mixed dog in Spruce Grove
Spruce Grove, AB
Hello ladies and most gentlemen,My name is Gus, I am a happy 6 yr old bully mixture. I'm not a big guy but what I lack in size I make up for in personality. I have not had the best beginning, but I'm trying REAL hard to correct some of the naughty habits I have picked up over the past years. But let's start with the nice because I really am a great boy!1st and foremost if you love to play ball! Like a lot! It's how I find out if I like people or if people like me. I will play it in the house, outside, in the car, anywhere and everywhere! I also love love love squeekie toys and I love to shred them! My foster mom has a free roam bunny, she fosters cats and kittens and I am such a great boy I know playing with the bunny is a big no no. I'd really like to please! So if I know the rules I really try to follow them! I am not the cuddliest when we 1st hang, but if you play ball with me enough and show me affection 1st I come around and become THE BIGGEST SNUGGLE BUG. When my foster mom lets me sleep in the bed with her I take up almost all of the queen bed and once I am there, I don't like to move. I also really like to be with you! Like a lot! I will make sure your okay in the bathroom in the shower everywhere you think your alone, don't worry, your not alone,I will protect you! I also am very very nice off leash, especially if there is a ball involved. I listen very nice at the dog park. I do like other dogs especially if they are smaller then me. My foster mom has 2 smaller dogs, and we like each other. I don't mind the bigger dogs as long as they respect my space and my ball.Now let's talk about the things I need to work on, but remember I am a very nice boy! Let's talk about the tiny humans, they tend to move a little to fast for my comfort! In the past people weren't very nice to me and sometimes when the little humans grab and chase me I really don't like it! I like older humans! Especially if they play ball. Sometimes men with hats scare me! I bark and keep my distance to protect you! If I meet them properly I get more comfortable to be myself. Also because of the past I do not like my face grabbed until I know you won't hurt me, even when I know you won't hurt me I still growl but I'm just talking to you I won't bite! I also dislike being touched on the hind end area. I may be a youngish dog but I have a body of an old dog, the veterinarian said it's bad arthritis and I need icky medicine almost every night after my daily walks and ball time to help me be comfortable. When you leave me alone, please please don't be long. I don't like being with out you 1 bit! I would prefer it if you could be with me as much as possible. I get very anxious when you are coming back that I get very stressed and start to find not so nice ways to keep myself busy until you come home, then when you come home your not to happy to see me because I used the couch as a chew toy. My foster mom is trying to get me in this crate thing when she can't take me with her somewhere, I refuse unless there is something juicy in there for me. The veterinarian team thinks I was left in the crates way to long in the past and I chipped my teeth and even broke 1 trying to get out. Thankfully BARS got me all fixed up and I am much more comfortable now! If you go for a truck ride I would love to come be with you! Sometimes I whine if your not right beside me telling me it's okay, giving me love. When it's time to leave the truck make sure I have my leash on, I will not let you leave with out me. My foster mom was paying for gas and I missed her so much I jumped out the window and met her at the door of the store. When it comes to my toys, just remember they are my toys. Sometimes if you ask nicely I will give them back but if I really like it, it's best to leave me play with it or I get grumpy. I should let you know as-well when I go someplace new I like the other animals there to know this is my place too, so I have been known to pee in certain places but if you watch me and tell me NO nicely I won't tinkle I promise!If you think I can fit in your family FOREVER please fill out the application so we can play a game of ball and see if we really like each other!
