GUS – 20818
Safe - 3-3-2018 Brooklyn
Hello, my name is Gus. My animal id is #20818. I am a desexed male white dog at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 4 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 15-Feb-2018, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- no time for animal.
02/28/18 Gus is at risk due to being diagnosed with Canine Infection Respiratory Disease Complex and will likely require home rest and a series of antibiotics for up to 14 days. This is a contagious illness to other dogs. Gus is suitable for an owner with experience with dogs.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: To be honest, I was not planning on walking Gus today. I had a list of dogs that I was working my way down, but when I walked past Gus’ kennel, his sweet demeanor and gentle eyes drew me in. As soon as I put my fingers up to the bars, he was immediately licking them and trying to rub his face on my hands- what an angel! Gus walks well on the leash, sits nicely for treats, never stops wagging his tail, and is basically a meatball of happy, laid-back affection. He also seems to be house trained. A perfect combination!
