Name:   Gus Onslow  

Description:   ~ 4 yrs old ~ 22 lb ~ Fostered in Berkley Springs, WV ~

What a doll baby! Very sweet, yet very scared little guy. Picked up as a stray, Gus is a bit physically hampered by a long ago fractured pelvis. He walks and doesn't appear to be in pain, but we have to wonder how he must have suffered. It's possible that he was hit by a car, but how did he fend for himself in that condition? We just have to think that someone knew and just didn't bother taking him to the vet. Well, he's here now and we'll see to it that he never knows that kind of neglect again. The vets decided since he is not in any pain and runs around ok, it's better not to try and fix it. He does have some issues with stairs (unless it's raining - then he runs right up. LOL)

Gus is pretty shy and spends a lot of time under or behind furniture. He doesn't come looking for pets or even treats. But he seems to be happy. The foster mom is trying to take him places for socializing. He shies away from some men. He is not all that affectionate with the other dogs, but he gets excited and joins the pack when they have to bark at something. He needs a fenced yard because he has good hunting instincts.

He might not be an instant pet, but he is a gentle soul who doesn't ask a lot of people. /
