Gus, a Beagle. Mix.

August 17, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

This is Gus:

ISC_6725-EditISC_6725-Edit He belongs to my friend Sarah Williams, she adopted him in the Spring of 2017 from Best Friends Animal Society. Gus is pretty famous, he scored a page in People Magazine. Seems that Gus weighed close to 80 lbs when he first arrived at Best Friends, plus he was plagued by a host of other medical problems. With the help of the folks at Best Friends, Gus cut back to a svelte 35 pounds. He charmed the pants off everyone, and Sarah fell hard for him when she first saw him. So Gus came home to Raleigh to join Juno and Woody, and Pippa (also from Best Friends) joined the pack as well. 


Gus has the softest ears. And the biggest eyes.
