DCL Pet of the Week: Meet Gus
Say hi to Gus, a handsome 2-year-old male Labrador/terrier mix.This handsome dog is the Humane Society of West Alabama's Pet of the Week!
Gus has the body of a lab with a smooth black and white coat. He is a big boy, weighing 45 pounds, but needs to put on more weight and get up to around 50 pounds.
This fine fellow is a lover! Gus thrives on attention and likes to lean on you. He is friendly and very social. He would make a great workout dog for nice walks or jogs.
Gus is too big for an apartment and will require a fenced-in yard so he can run and play, but he should not be an outside-only dog. He should be fine with children 8 and up, but not younger due to his large size.
He seems to do better with calm, laid back dogs and he tends to be the dominant dog. A trial would be done if there are other pets in the household to make sure all get along OK.
Gus has started his crate training. He is up to date on his vet care, neutered, heartworm negative and is microchipped. He is on heartworm and flea/tick prevention.
