Pet of the Week: Gus

Meet Gus, a male Coonhound, Treeing Walker/Bloodhound available for adoption locally.

Here is what his friends at NOVA Pets Alive have to say about him:

Gus the goof is a cartoon dog personified. He is 1.5 years old and 70 lbs, full of silliness and love and has no idea how to enter a room gracefully.

This cutie captures the hearts of everyone he meets. He loves to play with dogs, is scared of cats and will let them run the house, and has a blast running around with kids.

Gus is a giant puppy looking for a home to love him and appreciate him for who he is — a gentle giant with coordination issues. You can apply to adopt Gus at!
