Gus ~ in Southern California

Looking for a Home

I am Gus, a one year old Silky Terrier mix. I am a smart, happy, and loving young dog. Somehow I ended up in a shelter, but Silky Rescue saw that I was going to make some lucky person very happy, and they bailed me out.

I weigh about nine pounds and I am quite skinny. I love all the other dogs and I love to play tug and tag with them. I like to chase cats, but if they donít run, I leave them alone. And I love people! I like to give them kisses!

I am so smart that I learned to sit on command in two minutes. Now I am working on coming when called and staying when the door is opened. I quietly sleep in my crate and I can eat in there, too. I have good house manners and go outside to do my business. I have a wire coat that is easy to groom and a long, natural tail that never stops wagging.

Gus would do well in a home with older children or an active adult or two. He has been neutered and has all his shots and a microchip. His adoption fee is $150.00.

Gus' new family will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to provide proper care for him. Preference will be given to local applicants. If you are interested in Gus, please fill out an application and mention his name. The application is on-line at If you have already filled out an application, it is not necessary to re-do it...just email us at and let us know you are interested in Gus (please include your name and state so we can find your application in our files).
