A bit about Gus’s personality:

Gus is a gentle smart soul, that still loves to work. He’s happy to lie on the porch, he quietly follow you around, and he enjoys having gentle hugs.

I have had him two years. He is good working with cattle, he can move anything, haven’t had sheep so I don’t know how he works with them. He was off a station. You ask him to go and he’s experienced enough to work it out for himself, otherwise he will look back to you for direction.

He is a gem, but unfortunately I have moved and do not have any work for him, and I have too many retired dogs. Breaks my heart to let him go, so he needs a special home with someone to love him. He must have been hit in the past with a stick, as he is scared of them, he is more timid of men so I would prefer a female owner, or a male that is gentle and kind 🙂
