Gus is an eight-year-old Labrador retriever mix who is looking for love in all the right places. His friends from Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League describe him as one of the sweetest and most gentle dogs one would ever want to meet.
Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, the Humane Society of the Palm Beaches, provides services to more than 30,000 cats, dogs, puppies and kittens each year; one by one the stories of amazing rescues and adoptions warm our hearts.
At one time, Gus had been a victim of a rough life, but with the help from shelter personnel, our pooch of the week is ready to start his new life.
"I'm thankful to have a second chance at a happy life. I think I'd be a really good fit for someone looking for a buddy to hang out with all day," Gus says. "I'm a really good lounger. I do enjoy leisurely walks too, so that would be nice to have also."
A volunteer whispers to us that Gus really enjoys belly rubs.

Gus also qualifies for the Senior program which encourages senior citizens (age 65 and older) to participate in the Senior to Senior program. Qualified candidates are matched with a senior pet (five years or older). Research has shown that having a pet helps people lead healthier lives with the companionship, lowered blood pressure, stress relief, sense of purpose and responsibility a pet parent is able to provide. Live longer, find a new four-legged special friend, and save a life. The program will waive Gus' adoption fee and the fee for his rabies tag.
