Pupdate 1: Gus is a 2-year old black mouth cur mix. He is just a little over 60lbs. Gus is potty trained and knows all basic commands - sit, stay, leave it, on the spot. He is a great family dog and good with small children. He has been around a child younger than 5 his entire life. Gus is a very loving and cuddly dog. He loves attention. Gus is has a medium level of energy. He does enjoy 1-2 walks per day and really loves to work his nose. Gus currently lives in a home with 2 other dogs - one female and one male. His female furry sister is 3 and he enjoys playing with her. His play can get a little rough - but he does listen when corrected. Gus does ok with his fur-brother but there is some tension time to time with the other male. It is correctable and he knows when he has stepped out of line.

Gus needs a firm leader who can be patient and strong. He is leash reactiveness while walking and seeing other dogs. While he lives with other dogs and has participated in two dog obedience classes with other dogs - he is very unsure with other dogs. He shows a great deal of anxiety and stress and has sometimes lashed out at other males. He needs someone to help him through these social challenges so he can be out and enjoy the outside and play with other pups. He doesn't have to be with other pups - but would do best with a good amount of exercise if he were the only dog. He would do great living on a farm or on some land with someone who will let him cuddle on their lap.
