Dog of the Week!


Hi! My name is Gus. I'm 4 years old and 26 lbs. I'm a short stocky guy. I’m small but my personality is HUGE. I’m cute, lovable, and fun. BUT, I know this and sometimes act out to see if I can get away with it. It will be important to be a strong, dog-savvy pack leader with me. I will resource guard my toys and treats, can be leash reactive, and am not a big fan of the word NO. I’m good with kids big and small when in a control environment with a pack leader. I’m a little more wary around men, so will just need a slow, relaxed introduction or preferably a home with all women. Look at this little face (ok, yeah....and my cute little stocky legs)...,come meet me, I’m worth it!

I do have a bite history. Part of resource guarding is growling and lunging at individuals. This is what I was doing when I bit a previous owner in November 2020.  I've been a good boy since being back at ODHS.
