It took 276 days, but grumpy ol’ Gus has finally been adopted! Gus came into the Arizona Humane Society (AHS) in Phoenix, Arizona on July 31, 2018 after being found nearby in Glendale, Arizona. During his stray hold, no one ever came forward for the 12-year-old Australian Shepherd mix who was living with a bit of arthritis and dental issues, both of which were treated through the Arizona Humane Society’s trauma hospital.

His size (94lbs, probably more now due to the amount of treats staff and volunteers gave him!) and fluffiness alone were enough to draw people to him, but it didn’t take long for AHS staff and volunteers to love Gus, but boy, he did not necessarily love us.
