Gus Gus makes a great companion. He'll follow you around your house and be your shadow. While he's timid with new people he becomes very devoted to those he knows, loving being rubbed behind his ears. Gus Gus cavorts around playfully both with people and with other dogs. He's relatively quiet and barks only occasionally so he'd be fine living in an apartment, in fact that's where he lives now. Gus Gus loves his walks! He's a 14 lb. Pug/Chihuahua who's about 6 years old. He's calm but sometimes has fun-loving playfulness as shown in the videos below.
Gus Gus was brought into the Bonita shelter in San Diego in a box with 8 other dogs by someone who said all 9 dogs had been left abandoned in a apartment by their previous owner. Most of these dogs had been neglected. Luckily not so with Gus Gus--- he only needed a dental which Animal Alliance has gotten him.
