Hello there! I’m Augustus but my friends call me Gus Gus. I am an 8-9 year old neutered pittie/hippo mix and I am looking for an active retirement home! I have had a pretty amazing family and a dad that loved me for most of my life, but he got really sick and couldn’t take care of me anymore. My dad trusted one of my favorite vet techs to take care of me and find me an amazing home. I have some mild skin allergies (seborrhea) that we manage with a proper diet, baths and allergy tablets. I was also a very chunky boy and have been on a major diet and exercise regimen. I used to be over 80 pounds, but we’ve gotten me down to 59!! Woot! This has been huge as I also have some mild arthritis and a bit of a limp from an old knee injury. I take a joint supplement and have been pain free since losing the weight. I am a good boy too and love everyone I meet. I adore children and other dogs, especially playful ones! I am kennel and house trained too. I am very curious about cats and like to chase and mouth them. I know I am not the youngest and that I have a few issues, but I am so hopeful that there is a family out there that wouldn’t mind a cool guy like me hanging out with them for a few years. My foster momma will send a supply of my allergy meds, shampoo, joint supplements and food to get my new family started. Please fill out an application at
