Chihuahua, Mix

An adotable dog in Philadelphia, PA

  • Adult
  • Small
  • Male

Gus is an active and spunky little dude who can melt a heart without trying. He gets along well with other dogs and enjoys the company of people. Gus would benefit from a refresher in house training as well as learning basic commands to help him become a well rounded guy. He is quite a charmer who'd love to find his perfect place soon!

Name: Gus

Location: Foster Care

Breed: Chihuahua mix (Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label)

Age: 2-4 years old

Weight: 11 pounds

Reason for surrender to shelter: Gus was found as a stray

If you are interested in adopting Gus, please email [email protected] for an application. If you are interested in seeing a specific dog, please speak with our adoption staff member at 215-298-9680 X16 before coming to the shelter to make sure that the dog is still available.
