Gus in GA

**March 22, 2017 Update:

Wanted to give you a Gus update. He is doing great!  Still so happy and he shows it everyday. Every time anyone comes over they are amazed at how happy he seems. He really loves life right now. He eats 10 cheeseburgers from Burger King. I take the pickles off of the burger and break it into 1/4. At lunch his pills get slipped in. He eats 5 at lunch then 5 at dinner. After he eats the burgers he then loves the pickles. That is his favorite part. I had to go buy a big jar of dill pickle slices because my other two DDBs that are inside love pickles too. Gus eats his pickles in the burgers and the others get the ones in the jar. Gus isn’t the fondest of them out of the jar. I have never had dogs that eat pickles the way these three do.  The 10 cheeseburgers are keeping his weight up and he looks really good. His breath still smells horrendous. Some days worse than others though. Gus is quite the ham and has us all wrapped around his toes. If he doesn’t like something he will come tell you. Whether it’s the water bowl is getting low, he wants wanted, he wants to be fed, he wants to lay in a bed one of the others are in. He actually shakes his head no if he doesn’t like something. He has also gotten very protective over me. He always has been protective but it’s gotten a lot more. I keep thinking there is no way he could flourish more or get happier but he does.  He is finally figured out what being a dog and being loved means and he is totally loving it !

**Feb, 17, 2017 Update on Gus, it appears Gus is in liver failure. We have started a fund raiser to cover some of the vetting that’s been done. If you can help us, please do. He is doing ok on the treatments, but likely will not recover..

Meet Gus, a 5yr old male that has just joined us from an owner surrender and is being fostered in southern Georgia.  Gus is currently being vetted to care for his skin issue and being underweight, just 93# at surrender. He is heartworm negative!   Gus came from a home with children and displayed no anxiety when petted and rubbed, he allowed the evaluator to look at his teeth and run her hands over his legs and hips.  She describes Gus as a very loveable dog with little training.  Gus has poor muscle tone, but this should improve as his nutritional needs are met (** UPDATE** we confirmed his “poor muscle tone” is hip dysplasia and possibly bad knees as well. He is doing very well being managed on vetprofen and glucosamine).  He is getting along with the other male and female DdBs that are in the foster home.  It is unknown how he reacts with cats.  Gus is housebroken, but will need leash training.  If you are considering adopting Gus please fill out our online adoption application and list Gus as the rescue you are interested in.
