Your Next Best Friend: Gus

GusGood morning, Rappahannock! My name is Gus and I’m an English shepherd mix, weighing in at about 60 pounds. My breed was developed by English colonists who settled in our country in the 17th century, to work on their small farms. I’m in search of my new home but really wouldn’t be comfortable in one with lots of hustle and bustle. A quiet environment is more my style. I’m well-behaved and quite loyal and would love to meet someone whose home might be a good fit. Maybe you?

This past week, one of my canine colleagues was joined with new owners. The Rappahannock Animal Welfare League (RAWL), 160 Weaver Rd., Amissville, is open 8 to 1 daily. Call 540-937-3283 or visit
