Adoption Alert ~ Gus #2614 - Adoption in Progress

Hi everyone my name is Gus and I’m two years old.  My wonderful foster family describe me as a very sweet boy with a handsome face and a good heart.  I think the world of them too ~ they have been so kind to me.  When I first arrived at their home, I didn’t know what was happening.  Everything was so strange and I didn’t know what I was doing there.  But pretty soon I realized they were now looking after me.  I didn’t know why I was with them but I sure knew they loved me and wanted the best for me.  My life before this was good but somehow or other I missed my schooling.  So now I am a big two-year-old pup full of happiness, joy, and energy.  I love people and other dogs but haven’t learned all the proper things about meeting and greeting.  I still jump up when I get excited because I think everyone wants to play with me.  In other words, no one taught me life’s rules.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I don’t have an aggressive bone in my body.  I’m just a big puppy with a big heart and a big appetite for life.  So the first thing I need to do, if you choose me, is to go to school.  I need to learn all that stuff I missed.  I’m told I’m smart so it shouldn’t take too long but you would have to be patient with me.  The other thing is I don’t like is going in the car (I think it reminds me of leaving).  I’m resistant getting in the car but once I’m in it I’m totally fine ~ weird, eh?  Loud noises don’t bother me and I’m not a big barker.  I can be left alone if you have to go out but I still chew things so I might better in the crate when you’re away.  I love my walks and runs and my toys.  I know I have a lot to learn but I am getting the hang of the leash thing and a few other commands so I’ve already started my schooling but I’m a ways from graduating.  Could you help me get to graduation day?  If you do, I promise you all my love, loyalty, and of course, all my goofiness.
