Gus is larger than life. Or he used to be. He came to the Sanctuary from a beagle rescue because he was extremely obese. Since then, this super sweet boy has been dropping the extra weight and getting help with his medical issues, which include an underactive thyroid and dry eyes. Gus gets along well with other dogs, though he will guard his food from them. He currently eats a prescription diet to help manage his weight. Born in 2009, Gus is looking for a kind and understanding person who can assist with his needs. He promises to give a lifetime's worth of snuggles and love in return.
