Additional Details:

Gus is an XL boy that came in from the Sanford Orlando Race track. He only raced a total of 26 races. He started off running at Palm Beach and raced 5 races there and even won one of them, before falling in his 6th race. He barely ran in his next race and finished so far back he wasn't even in the picture. He was pulled out of racing for nearly 2 months. When he raced again, he finished so far back again that he wasn't even in the picture. So he was off for 3 more months. He finally started racing better for awhile and even won a couple of races. Then he started playing with other dogs instead of racing which is strictly against the rules, so he was pulled out of racing for a couple more months and moved to another track to see if he would do better. It was finally determined that he just needed to retire. Gus turned 3 on June 7th. HIs sire is Gianni and his dam is Estonia. Gus is an extra large, tall narrow, red brindle boy that raced at 83lbs. He is a very, happy, playful guy that loves to go for walks. He is a confident guy that is curious about everything and loves attention. Gus was interested in the cat he was tested with at first and barked at it, but once the cat slapped him, he backed away and didn't want to get close to him again. He may be trainable with a confident cat that will stand his ground. He is being fostered with a small dog and is fine with him. He really liked a toddler and other kids he was introduced to, but doesn't like to be bothered when laying down so we think he would be best in a home with no kids. Gus kennels great in a room with other dogs or people around but can complain loudly if no other dogs are with him so he would probably do best in a home with another dog buddy. He will probably need an extra tall 48" long crate. His back touches the top of the standard 48" long kennel.
