Gus is a twelve-year-old shepherd mix who was adopted more than eleven years ago from a Chicago shelter. Although once an energetic pup, he now prefers long snoozes on the couch to long walks on the beach. He is getting a little arthritic, blind, and deaf, but he still enjoys the occasional romp with the puppies on the block (provided said romp does not last more than thirty to forty-five seconds). He is much loved and very happy in his forever home. He is also a big proponent of shelter adoption!
