All in the Family


German Shepherd Dog / Labrador Retriever
August 29, 2008

We had to let Gus go on March 9, 2009, after almost 12 years together. It was the right thing for him, but our hearts our breaking. We will never forget you, Gus! ----------------------------- Gus was left at a Chicago shelter more than eleven years ago. The sign on his cage door said, "Approach me carefully. I'm shy," but it didn't stop him from finding a new family. He is now twelve years old, and although a little arthritic, blind, and deaf, still enjoys a good life of treats, tummy rubs, and tons of love from his moms.

I,too am a proponent of adoption. I have adopted and rescued six dogs over the years and each one has given me and my family infinite love and devotion--just like your Gus.
