SENIOR SUNDAY! @susiesseniordogs
has a happy-tail update!! After lingering for several months in a rural West Virginia shelter, 10 year old Gus got ADOPTED this past weekend!! 115 pound Gus (formerly known as "Tiny" at the shelter) went unnoticed and overlooked for far too long simply due to his age. But after his big social media debut which garnered Gus some much needed attention, his story made his way to his new family...and the rest is history! Gus finally found freedom and the love of a family he's waited so long for.
His new mom writes, "I wanted to let you know that Tiny is doing just wonderful and I am thrilled to have him! I've given him a new name for his new start, Gus. He is an absolute sweetheart and I can't remember ever having an easier time getting a dog settled in. He and my two other dogs are getting along very well, that was my biggest concern, but everything seems just fine.
Gus had a long day on Saturday (time at the park with and without my two other dogs, lots of time in the yard, and a walk in his new neighborhood). He was very well mannered for dinner and treats, but not shy about eating! The first night with a new dog is usually stressful but Gus followed me to my bedroom, laid in his dog bed and went right to sleep. He slept like a rock all night without a sound! It was by far the easiest first night I've ever had with a new dog! He has not had any accidents in the house, he goes right outside and does his business.
These last few weeks have been a very emotional time for me after losing my dog Rex. I never ever intended to get another third dog. But I guess some things just happen for a reason. I have a big leather chair that my dear Rex used to lay in (no one else, dog or human, uses it). It is Gus' new favorite place to lounge and I'm so happy he likes it!"
