Our German shepherd rescue is quite proud to present for adoption a very special GSD male that goes by the handle “Sir Gus”. This young (3 years old) man came to us from a horrendous situation that involved starving, isolation, no medical care and a nonexistent human interface. Having said this about Gus what makes us so very proud and him so special is that he chose to lean into his new life and not let his old life define him. At this point our boy Gus is absolutely charming, loves everybody and everything, is great with other dogs, sharp almost a fault and has strong but in control protective instinct. We let Gus evolve at his own pace, he chose to never look back instead choosing to flourish in his new world. In the case of Gus we as the rehabilitators learned that he was teaching us so much more than we were teaching him, the student became the teacher. Just watching this guy push so hard to overcome just humbles you in his presence.
Gus is also very funny, acting like a puppy when playing with Zack (5 months old) and then acting all big shot when trying to act all grown up. Obviously Gus performed very well in all of our training and socialization programs, revealing a strong desire to train, an enormous love of people and an absolute “no quit” attitude. This guy will be a big boy weighing north of 100 pounds when fully filled out, he is a classic black and tan and can cover ten yard in a stride. If you have the love, patience, ability and time to fully develop this guy you will see he has few limits. As a trainer I can tell you without reservation that with follow through training Gus has few if any limits.
