This Profile Last Updated: 8-12-2021


Gus is a sweet, tall, lanky border boy. He loves all people and would do well with school-aged children. He can be a little grumbly with new dogs at first meeting, but lives peacefully with 4 other border collies. He has lots of ball interest and loves to play keep away from his humans!


His favorite past-time is to hoard and chew on yummy dog-appropriate bones and antlers. He likes to empty his toy basket and keep all the bones close by for lots of chew time. He doesn’t chew on anything but what he is supposed to, however.


Gus is not great with cats as he has some herding drive. He rides great in a car, walks on a leash well, and sleeps in his crate fine. But, since he is so trustworthy out of his crate, his foster mom leaves him loose all day long with no problem.


He would make a great companion for a family that doesn’t want an extremely active dog. He knows sit, and come, and crate. He is house-broken completely.


Gus initially had some health issues shortly after coming into rescue but these have resolved. 


Gus is up-to-date on shots, healthy, neutered and chipped and ready for his forever family. Please apply for him at ABC rescue. A home visit will be done and an adoption donation of $330 will be asked.
