Gus is a 9 year-old, male German Shepherd; he is housebroken and nondestructive. He is also crate trained, however, no longer needs to be in it. Gus LOVES LOVES LOVES people! He is very polite with his toys and his food and would gladly share the with you. He loves to catch a ball when you throw it & will bring it back to you and hope you throw it again for him. Gus also loves tug o’ war … almost as much as he loves hearing praise from his human. This handsome gentleman just beams when you tell him he’s a good boy.

Gus was taken into a temporary home when his previous owner lost her job and could no longer afford to care for him properly. Now, unfortunately, due to travel/work demands, he is running out of time in his temporary home and needs placement by September 8th.

Gus would love to be the only dog in the household, in return he will be the best companion you could EVER hope for. Gus is very relaxed guy and loves napping by his human or will entertain himself with his favorite ball or Kong toy if the mood strikes him. Other pets are not recommended, as he has a prey drive and is dog reactive.

Gus is still with his new family and Sedona Shepherd Sanctuary (and Garden State German Shepherd Rescue) are working to help find a home for them.  If you are interested in opening up your home to this handsome German Shepherd, please reach out to us at or fill out an adoption application form.   We will forward your application to their new family.
