About Gusto

Adoption Fee: $250
German Shepherd
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Meet Gusto, a 2-year-old German Shepherd Dog. Gusto has the breed-standard characteristic of being affectionate with family, including children. He is loyal, confident, courageous, and incredibly smart. He knows numerous commands and continues to learn new ones. Gusto is a guardian to his family and tends to have an aloofness for those outside his circle. Once you're inside his circle though, he will love and protect you. Gusto is athletic, has a keen sense of smell and displays herding techniques. He has grown up in a rural area with lots of room to roam. His favorite game is (oddly) throwing rocks and playing keep away. He loves to follow his people around, looking for ways he can help with chores. Gusto has a strong prey drive and never passes the opportunity to chase rabbits or cats. He may be better as a lone pet, at least initially. Gusto is quite healthy. He was given glucosamine supplements for nearly two years to maintain healthy joints. He gets plenty of exercise and has been given heartworm, flea, and tick medications monthly since we brought him home at 6 weeks. All vaccinations are up to date. Gusto has a striking appearance consisting of erect ears; black, tan, and red double coat; with a muscular and robust build. Gusto is a very good boy looking for a home that can give him the necessary interaction he ought to have. As with all German Shepherds, Gusto requires regular mental and physical stimulation. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we cannot love him in the way he deserves. AKC registration and other essentials are negotiable.
