|This is the most recent information available; however, it may change as we learn more about the dog.
Gus/Buddy is 22 months old. He is a mixed breed dog, possibly could have some husky in there & is a light cream/honey color. He is now known as Buddy. He was adopted February 2015 when he was about 10 weeks old or so.
He was recently returned to RAGOM because he runs through the underground fence even when his collar was turned up. This is why he will need a physical fence. He has a good recall & comes right away to "Buddy, come"
He previously lived with another dog & with kids aged 8 & 13. He is playing very well & happily with the resident dog in his foster home. He had not seen cats since he was very young until now. He's curious & sniffs at them. He chases them when they run. The resident cat has an escape route to a dog free area of the house but continues to come visit Buddy. I think they both enjoy the thrill of the chase.
Buddy pulls very hard when on a leash with a martingale collar. I will be trying out a Gentle Leader harness & work with him on this.
Buddy is current on his vaccines & preventatives. He weighs 43 pounds. At his wellness exam last week, the vet said his weight is good. He will need his teeth cleaned to remove tarter but doesn't have any dental disease & doesn't need any extractions.
Buddy is crate trained & uses it at night time & when nobody is home. He is fully house trained & has free roam when we are at home. He rides good in a car and he prefers to lay down rather than looking out.
Buddy is looking for his forever family. Is he a good fit for yours?
Say hello to Gus!! Gus is a totally cute little fellow who came from the Pine Ridge Reservation. He is somewhere between 6 and 8 weeks and most likely a mixed breed dog, but we don’t know what he is mixed with. He is the color of a light golden with a tail that curls a little and small cute ears. Gus really is just an adorable little ball of fur with teeth at this point.
Gus met our dogs with no problems. I don’t think either of them are very happy about having this little guy playing with their toys, but Gus sure is having a blast. Gus met one of our cats, also named Gus, with a few sniffs and a weary attitude. He, Gus the dog, was just fine with Gus the cat, and left him alone after the initial meeting.
Gus will be going to the vet Tuesday and we should get a better idea of his age at that point. When he is 8 weeks old we will get him neutered and then he will be ready to go to his forever home. I doubt we are going to have this sweet little boy very long. While he may not be able to go to his forever home for several weeks we know he is anxious to find the family he will be able to call his own and who will help him grow to be a sweet and loving family member.
Please remember that while puppies are adorable and bring a lot of joy and love into a home, they require a lot of time and energy in their first year of life to turn them into good adult dogs. While house training puppies like Gus remember that have small bladders and they need to be able to have frequent potty breaks during the day. Proper socialization is also very important to young dogs. RAGOM gets many dogs that have not been properly trained or socialized so please take these things into account when looking at a puppy.
