Sumter, SC For the first year of his life, Gus was not someone's beloved companion; he received no training/discipline/guidance; he was not properly socialized and wasn't taught any manners. He's come so far over the past few weeks. He's settling down, learning some manners and how to be part of a family. Gus needs a family that will include him in their active lifestyle. He's highly trainable and eager to please. He loves other dogs but he is a 'ruff' player (he is not dominant/alpha nor is he aggressive); his playmates should be similar in size or larger, no small dogs.
