Hi! I’m Gus! I’m about a year old and they tell me that I’m a Red Heeler mix whatever that is! I have such a great time running around the yard and chasing my foster siblings around! I would love to have a fenced in yard so I can run and play all the time! If you add a ball to that fenced yard, it would be heaven!

Guess what??? I’m even housebroken and know how to sit and my foster mom gives me a B- on “stay” and “down”. Seriously, how much fun is “staying down”?! She’s convinced I just want to see her get all silly when I actually do “stay down”.

I like knowing where everyone is all the time. I check in on my family if they are in different rooms. My mom says I should just lay on my pillow, but I have FOMO – fear of missing out – and I may lose out on play time if I don’t know what’s going on. I guess it’s the herding nature in me! I will make an excellent family dog and I can’t wait to show you just how loyal I can be!
