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!
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@example.com 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.

PAWS, the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, is a 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue organization. PAWS pulls at-risk animals from the City of Philadelphia's animal control shelter and adopts them out, either from our adoption center (located at 2nd and Arch Streets), from one of our adoption locations at area PETCO and PetSmart stores, or from our network of foster homes.
PAWS is dedicated to saving the lives of Philadelphia's homeless, abandoned and unwanted animals and is working to make Philadelphia a city in which every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home.
When you adopt a pet from PAWS you truly save a life!
PAWS' Adoption Center in Old City is open Monday-Friday from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday 11a.m.-7p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Please reference this animal's ID NUMBER when inquiring about this pet.
All animals adopted from PAWS are up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and microchipped. Adoption fees are as follows: $150 for dogs older than 1 year, $200 for puppies under 1 year, $50 for cats over 6 months of age, and $75 for cats under 6 months of age.
Please visit our web site, www.phillypaws.org, for our full calendar of adoption events throughout the region, and for more information on adopting, fostering, volunteering, or donating.
