Gus: A Mixed Breed Dog with a Mixed Past

Gus is one very lucky dog: after his first family had to give him up and another family didn’t take good care of him, Gus was saved from the animal shelter on the DAY he was supposed to be euthanized! I am so glad that P.A.W.S. (a rescue organization in Ft. Walton Beach) picked him up and delivered him to a foster family. And after that, it wasn’t long before Karla found him! Gus and Karla make an adorable pair; he never wants to be far from her but always seems to be testing exactly what he can get away with… plus; isn’t he handsome? And isn’t she beautiful! Clients like this make my job quite a bit easier! :) Gus is a hound/boxer mix, and I think whatever’s in him mixed very well, don’t you?


We started out at the park, where Gus had quite a time running up and down the wooden walkways…

We had a pretty foggy morning – and look what it did to the bay! You can hardly see the horizon! I thought it was beautiful, and I’d never seen such an effect before. I’m glad we got a few photos that captured the surreal setting.

Gus’ happy place: right next to Karla.

Thanks for making the trip out from Ft. Walton Beach all the way to Pensacola, Gus & Karla! I had a great morning with you two, and something tells me your gallery is going to be huuuuge… It’s a good problem to have though, I promise! :) Keep an eye on the Facebook page because I might not be able to resist posting another photo or two there!
