Gus is a lovely pup who is ready to meet his new family. This four-year-old Labrador Retriever mix is playful and loves to be around people.

According to Broward County Animal Care, Gus is 48 pounds and has had some training. He follows commands nicely, sits, gives a paw, and takes the treats very gently. He arrived at the shelter in May and, since then, had a lot of staff playtime and plenty of practice walking on a leash.

Gus loves car rides and is genuinely a great companion, always ready for an adventure, a walk in a park, or a good round of fetch.
