Full Description: Description by foster mom:

Gus is a 2 year old purebred male German Shepherd Dog, who came to the Humane Society of North Iowa as an owner surrender. He is a classic black and tan male, weighs approx 70# now, but should mature at 85-90#.

Gus has a good foundation of obedience, he is house trained, has excellent recall,  is quiet in the house and my outside kennels, doesn’t chew on anything, he sticks close to home and is not a runner. He is currently living with two other GSD’s, a house cat, barn cats and horses.

Gus is a very nice boy in many ways, however he has some issues meeting strangers, which I am working on. He is extremely sweet and submissive with people he knows.

The best home for Gus would be someone with GSD experience who is willing to work through his stranger issues. I also think he would enjoy having a confident female dog as a companion, he is somewhat pushy towards my male GSD, but readily accepts corrections from my female GSD

Please call the Humane Society of North Iowa at 641-423-6241 for more information.

Adoption fee covers the following veterinarian services: spay/neuter surgery, age appropriate vaccinations, flea and dewormer treatment, feline leukemia/FIV test in cats, and heartworm test for dogs.
