Favorite Food: Chicken, bacon, bison, cheese, and whatever else mom will share.
Favorite Walk: Off leash park by the river in Prospect.
Best Tricks: Jumping through hoops, sitting pretty, high five, crossing paws, fetching money.
Arrival Story: I adopted Gus (formerly known as Lassie) in 2009 from a very nice lady named Vic who found her running loose on a country road and took her in to her own rescue foundation. She had her for a year before she would adopt her to just the right home. I'm glad she approved, because Gus and I have had the best time ever since! She's amazingly silly and athletic and pretty darn smart (especially when there's food involved!)--a fearless climber and jumper, a fast runner and loves people of all sizes! A total sweetie--I couldn't wish for a more wonderful friend!
Bio: We proudly earned our CGC -Canine Good Citizen certificate in 2010. We've been working on agility since last summer--hopefully we'll be getting to some trials this year and also got the first two legs of our Rally Obedience Novice title this spring!
I love taking songs and replacing lyrics with Gus's name in fitting spots! Like when Tom Waits sings "somewhere there's a place for us," it becomes "somewhere there's a place for Gus." :)
