About Gus

Adoption Fee: $50
Plott / Boxer
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Let me introduce a very handsome boy by the name of Augustus. Gus is plott hound with possibly some boxer mixed in. He is 65 pounds and around 2 years old. He is a real sweetheart. He is well behaved, knows basic commands of sit, stay, shake, lay down and no. He is not food aggressive, will not approach his food bowl or food at all until released to do so. He does not come in the house unless invited. He is crate trained, but sometimes is allowed to sleep inside on his bed by the fireplace. He really enjoys kids and gets on well with cats, dogs and has no fear of and seems to be used to being around horses. Chickens however are at risk, though I'm sure he could be trained to leave them alone. He is very intelligent and likes working with me on tricks. Within one day he was jumping through a hoop, jumping over devised obstacles and catching balls in the air. His one drawback is that he LOVES to run and run with his nose to the ground. It's his nature. It breaks my heart to post this because he is a pleasure. But, I do not have space required for him to get the amount of daily exercise he needs and I'm too old to walk/run him enough on a leash. If anyone is interested in adopting this wonderful dog please contact me.
